Hi, this is Arafat. I am new in Upwork.I have a agency and my membership plan in "Basic". I found a work which matched in my work area.Whenever i go to submit proposal then it took me to membership plan. What is the crieteria of submitting proposals.
I checked your account and it looks like you are an exclusive member of your agency. Agency members who are exclusive work on Upwork only as part of their agency. Their profile and proposals are branded with the agency to make the agency’s part in the working relationship clear to clients. All contract payments are paid out to the agency.
Only the agency owner and agency admins have the ability to purchase Connects. Agency Plus is a monthly subscription for $20.00 (USD) per month that gives agencies access to build their team and purchase shared agency Connects for $0.15 (USD) per Connect. You can check this help article for more information.
I encourage you to check out the help articles here to learn more about agencies.
You can submit proposals from your agency profile by searching for a job and clicking the "Submit a Proposal" button. Business managers can submit a proposal on behalf of any agency member. They can edit or withdraw all agency proposals and accept or decline all offers. Agency members can also submit proposals themselves, which will be binding on the agency. All proposals will draw from the agency's collective Connects balance.
In order to do hourly contracts, you need to have a profile for each freelancer you assign to the project.
For fixed-price contracts, you can submit your proposal with the Business Manager’s profile and then assign freelancers to work on the project as needed.
