In order to continue sending proposals, you need to purchase Connects. 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. Check the options available to you and learn more about acceptable billing methods.

I am wasting tons of connects of jobs and clients are not hiring. Upwork should look into this problem
Upwork is returning the connects to freelancers for the jobs that were closed without hiring.
But some jobs are never closed nor they hire some one. I have applied to few jobs by using my purchased connects. It's been more than 10 days and the job is still there no one is being hired nor job is closed. So our connects are being wasted due to fake job posters.
