How is Commerce Hero different from Upwork?
To put it succinctly - quality and focus. Upwork serves a very broad audience, and tends to be a bit of a race to the bottom in terms of price. It's not uncommon to find Magento developers on Upwork charging $12/hour. If you don't know by now that that's not an appropriate rate for a Magento developer, you'll find that out fairly soon as you're getting into the world of Magento development.
By focusing exclusively on Magento, and because of the breadth of experience that our founding team has in the Magento community, we're able to vet our developers to bring to you quality developers that you can trust.
