What do I need to do to access lower fees?

Just click the link below to find your referral link and share it with your clients. If you don’t have a Work for Impact account yet, the link will take you to the sign-up form first.

Once your client has signed up with their referral link, they’ll be prompted to create a job (for free) and hire you.

Our human team will be manually checking the accuracy of contracts transferred to our platform and then applying the lifetime 5% discount, so we might reach out to you if we need proof or more info.

What if I'm currently paying a 20% fee on a contract on another platform?

Our discounted independent contractor fees and other referral benefits apply to any independent contractor contract on any platform that’s not Work for Impact. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently paying a 5% or 20% fee. For every contract you transfer to us, you’ll get a month of zero fees and then 5% independent contractor fees for life on that contract.

What about your normal fees for new contracts?

For regular contracts that you haven’t transferred from another platform, please refer to our regular pricing structure.

I'm already an independent contractor on Work for Impact. Can I access this offer?

Of course! We’d never leave you folks out – you’re the reason we’ve got this far. If you transfer any existing contracts to our platform, we’ll give you the free month of fees and 5% for the remainder of the contract. Remember, this is only applicable if you bring a new client to the platform.
