Service Fees

Work For Impact deducts a service fee of 10% from the Freelancer's earnings up to a total of $10,000.00 per client. Once that earnings threshold is reached for a particular client,  the fee is reduced to 5%. 

This fee structure applies to all job types - Per Hour Jobs  or Fixed-price Jobs. See sample calculation below:

 

Example 1 - Per Hour Job

Freelancer-1 was hired by Client-A  as Customer Support with a rate of $10/hour at 40 hours/week. To be able to meet the threshold of $10,000, Freelancer-1 will have to work for at least 25 weeks. All the earnings during this period are charged 10%.

If Freelancer-1 works for Client-A for a longer term, her earnings from Week 26 onwards will be charged a 5% service fee only.

  • At $10/hr. x 40 hours/week = $400
  • $400 x 10% = $40
    • Net earnings of Freelancer-1 for Week 1 up to Week 25 is $360
  • At Week 26, $10/hr. x 40 hours = $400 is charged 5%
    • $400 x 5% = $20
    • Net earnings of Freelancer-1 from Week 26 onwards is $380 

Example 2 - Fixed Price Job:

FL-1 worked with Client-A for the first on a website development project that cost $5,000. 

    • The total cost of $5000 is below the $10,000 threshold, thus this earning will have a service of 10% deduction.
    • $5000 x 10% = $500
    • Net earnings of FL-1 is $4,500
  • Client-A had another project. He contracted FL-1 again to build an App. Total project cost: $6000
    • Client-A is a repeat client.
    • New project cost of $6000 brings the total earnings of FL-1 from Client-A above the threshold
    • The fee will be calculated as follows:
      • $5000 x 10% = $500
      • $1000 x 5% = $50
      • The total service to be deducted is $550 and net earning of FL-1 from the 2nd contract is $5,450.
