Hey all, great to connect with all here. I've a nagging topic and hope to seek your advice.

Has anyone dealt with repeat customers that you've gotten from Upwork or Fiverr? Do you use the platforms (and pay the fees) for repeat assignments like that, or did you find ways to do it off the platforms to save on the fees?

I understand there is SOME risk involved in this, but I reckon it's very unlikely for repeat customers to be ghosting you, and there may be also smart ways to ensure payment is made first before transferring my work over. I can't imagine paying the platform the commission fees again for a client that I already know, and wants to do business with me. It's like being charged twice for the same thing.

If you have dealt with a similar situation, how'd you do it? Appreciate your advice on this!
