All Things Upwork

We’re excited to announce the new payout for the oDesk Affiliate Program and what better way to do so than live at the Affiliate Summit?

In just a few short months since our new affiliate program was launched, we’ve already begun working with affiliate marketers to grow the oDesk community. Now we are even more excited to introduce our new and improved payout program for affiliate members. Publishers can use oDesk for all of their day-to-day needs, since oDesk is a great place to find web developers, graphic designers, blog writers, virtual assistants, and online marketers (SEO, PPC, and social media experts).

So what’s new? We’ve expanded our payout to now include provider signups as well as buyers.

Our new program terms are quite generous:

  • We will pay affiliates $50 for each new business they send to oDesk that signs up & verifies a credit card.
  • We will pay affiliates $.50 for each freelancer they send us that applies for a job.
