A year ago, we the Freelancers enjoy the FREE COONECT to apply to a job post. Lately, we need to buy CONNECTS for us to send proposal to any project we want to.

 

As a way of giving back to FREELANCERS (TOP RATED), could we have a FREE CONNECTS when we apply to our most liked job posts or we feel comfortable with any job posts? Although no CONNECTS" needed when we replied back to job invites.

 

Thank you.

Were they actually closed by the clients, or did they simply expire? Most of the time, jobs will expire and then you won't get your connects back. (Clients who hire elsewhere or change their minds or whatever, will seldom come back to Upwork to close their jobs.) Or if the job was closed because the client hired somebody else, you won't get your connects back either.

Hi Sagar,

 

Please note that the Freelancer Basic plan doesn't include free Connects so you'll need to purchase them if you'd like to send proposals. Some background information: Connects system on Upwork was updated a year ago and you can read more about that change in this Community Announcement.

This can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. If you aren’t able to use a credit card or prepaid card or you don’t have an Upwork balance, in many cases you’ll be able to use PayPal. To see the options available to you, click hereTo learn more about acceptable billing methods feel free to check this help article.

Hi Jonah. There used to be a free monthly connect allowance, but that ended over a year ago. Now you have to pay for them.

Hello,

 

I am new at Upwork. I just applied for a few projects and spend all my connects on that. At this moment, I don't have any option to buy new connects. Is there any other way to get it? I think 20 connects are not enough for a new member to land the first job. I hope to get help & suggestion from this community.

 

With Regards,

Sarmin Aktar

Connects are no freer.  You need to buy the connects.
