Transparency of Fees

At Work for Impact, we believe in being as transparent as possible about the way we do business. All of our fees are clearly explained and laid out so you know exactly how much you’re paying, and what you’re paying for, at all times.

If you have questions about any of the fees you’re charged, please reach out to us and one of our team members will be happy to assist you.

Charitable Donations:

6% of Work for Impact’s total revenue will be donated to pre-approved charities. Organisations can apply to have their charity listed.

Our Fees

Work for Impact deducts a service fee of 10% from freelancer earnings up to a total of $10,000 per client. Once that earnings threshold is reached for a particular client, Work for Impact will deduct 5% from freelancer earnings from that client moving forward.

Example 1

Total Earnings / client: Less than $10,000 | Fee: 10%

You work with a new client and earn $3000, our fee will be $3000 x 10% = $300. You will be entitled to $2700.

Example 2

Total Earnings / client: Above $10,000 | Fee: 5%

You work with a recurring client and you have accumulated earnings with the same client exceeding $10,000. You then earned another $1,000 with the same client, our fee will be $1,000 x 5% = $50. You will be entitled to $950.
