UWork is an advertising company that pays its registered users for completing little tasks on their platform. There are similar platforms that work in a similar fashion as this company, so understanding the whole idea behind this platform shouldn’t be that difficult for you.
It’s clear that you’re here to find out information about this platform and without wasting much of your time, let’s quickly dive why we’re here.
How do you make money on UWork?
A member of UWork has to share sponsored posts released by the platform on his or her Facebook timeline daily to earn. The amount you get to earn depends on the package you’re subscribed to. We would talk about the packages later in this article.
There are two basic ways to make money from this platform, they are:
- Task Earning; and
- Team Commission.
The first method is self-explanatory as you get to a percentage of the amount subscribed to for completing the task given to you on the platform while the second method is by getting referral commissions.
You get to earn $1.2 for every individual you refer to the platform and upgrade to any membership plan. You will also earn $0.25 per task your direct referral completes and $0.125 per task your indirect referral completes.

The minimum withdrawal amount for VIP accounts is $10 and one time $0.3 for a free membership. Getting this should be easy regardless of the package you’re in. Now, you can withdraw from UWork by:

No matter how reputable a platform is, there’s still the tendency of it shutting down anytime. For this reason, I’ll advise you to spend what you can afford to lose, i.e. if you’re planning on giving it a trial. If you have any questions about this platform, feel free to drop a comment below.
