With AWS IQ, you are paid as you complete project milestones. You submit a fixed bid proposal in response to a request from an AWS customer. As you complete pre-determined milestones or when the whole project is completed, you submit payment requests. Once the customer approves your payment request, you will receive the amount requested, less a 15% AWS IQ fee.

Pricing examples

For a project where you propose a $1,000 fixed bid fee, your payment would be as follows:

Payment request: $1,000

AWS IQ fee (15%): $150

Total payment: $850

*Note: AWS customers pay a 3% fee on their AWS IQ projects. For a $1,000 project, the AWS customer will pay a total of $1,030 to AWS, and AWS will disburse $850 to you.
