+Upwork (formerly oDesk) +Upwork 


UPWORK SHOULD BE RENAMED UP-YOURS!

Dear Stephane Kasriel
Your recent email about your change in charging freelancers 20% rather than 10% fees on monies they earn on projects that are $500 or less is preposterous. I'd hazard a guess that 80-90% of all Upwork projects are less than $500 and one offs. So congratulations!
This is a blatant raping of your valued freelancers. You know those free resources you're making money from.
You know damn well that most business we do is for less than $500 and one offs.
Now it will cost us twice as much. TWICE! for the same basic infrastructure and certainly make your competitors more attractive.
This is unacceptable - charge for credits to pitch for more business if you need to generate more $$, provide fewer credits for free, but to rape the supply side of your business is wrong - not to mention immoral and reprehensible.
I hope you see that this is NOT the way to go - there won't be a long term if you piss off your supply chain which is exactly what this will do.
NOT HAPPY - I'm sure you'll see your supply side shrink noticeably as a result.
While there may be those who would like to see a lower percentage on larger or longer term projects, that doesn't mean that you should penalise those who are working on shorter, smaller ones, which, again, are the bread and butter of Upwork projects. And your rationale that smaller projects cost you more to service is ridiculous. With an online, automated business model, if you can't service the contract with 10% markup where all you provide is the infrastructure, there's more wrong with your business model than bad pricing decisions. You have a free supply that you charge 10 for everything they do..
This is just a blatant short term (and short sighted) cash grab that benefits no one but Upwork.... Maybe we should rename it to "UpYOURS!"
So disappointed.
Linda
