Enterprise clients pay you for your work the same way as marketplace clients:
- Hourly – Paid weekly based on the negotiated rate of the contract. Our time-tracking app and Work Diary eliminate cumbersome manual invoices.
- Fixed-Price Milestones – Agree with your client on a list of milestones (prefunded with escrow). Once you complete and submit the tasks, they will release the funds held in escrow for that particular milestone.
Please note that the sliding freelancer service fees don’t apply to contracts with Enterprise clients. This is because Upwork negotiates individual contracts with those companies on a case-by-case basis. In general, Enterprise contracts have a flat 10% service fee. The contract terms will be specified on each contract offer you receive.
