    Guys, I started upwork around 4-5 months ago as small source for extra clients. I got good reputation and clients trust. but last night Upwork email just made me disturbed. That they increasing charge from 10% to 20% . Which is not good step in my point of view.
    As 1 increase, time soon fiverr and others like to follow same and increase fee.
    What you guys have to say about it? Anyone else got this email from upwork?
