I just came back to Upwork after a long time away (and I can't buy the connects, yet, so this invitation white flag is great way to make the good ones stay and make this community even better by making good publicity)

 

PS: but, is just a shame you rund out the free connect monthly option. It was a great way to screen real worker from casual artists... And to refresh the community with new struggling workers)

Hi Dwight,

 

Just to clarify, 70 connects are awarded to freelancers on our Plus plan. Freelancers on our Basic plan won't be receiving free connects anymore. Thank you.

Just Checked my Connects after a long time and It's still 46
Sad to hear that we don't receive free connects anymore!
Now it's even harder to work with Upwork. I have joined Since Upwork is Odesk and I have grabbed the Top Rated title continuously 4 years and now we got this revert by Upwork. Smiley Sad

Hi, I put a bid on a job and shortly after the job was canceled and then resubmitted at a lower price point, therefore I lost my bid. The advertiser admitted his mistake.
I think it's only fair that Upwork re-credit me for the proposal that I lost due to no fault of my own.
Thank you

Hi Annalaura,

 

Connects are only refunded when a client closes their job without hiring or we find a job post has violated our Terms of Service. For more information about Connects, you can check out this help article.

 

Thank you.

Hi Serhii,

 

All freelancers were moved to Paid connects back in 2019. This means that freelancers on our Basic plan won't be receiving free connects anymore. Thank you.
