Margarete, that's only if you have plus membership and choose to make earnings private. Since I don't have plus membership, it's academic to me, but it's problematic for plus members.


 John, I have a Plus membership and made my earnings private. However, that does not mean that I do not want to appear in search results anymore.

Hey Rene touché.

 

We did evaluate that option but found the value of displaying fixed-price jobs are often inadequately represented by the number of projects completed.


Lena, you could have chosen to display levels like: $, $$, $$$, $$$$ and not plastering people's income before asking them if they are comfortable with this.

 

And I know, you can hide your earnings with premium and disappear from the listing, thank you very much.

 

Are you mods gonna to display your salary next to your name in the community?

Hi Margarete,

 

Preston is correct, I can confirm that your profile will still show in freelancer search unless the client specifically filters the results by earnings.

 Yes, and the client will do this if this option is offered and so my profile will not appear in the most search results. The Plus membership freelancers contribute a considerable amount to Upwork's income and it is not acceptable that they will be disadvantaged. If only 100,000 freelancers have a Plus membership this means 12 million USD per year from Plus members.

Hi Rene, 

$, $$, $$$ symbols were something we considered. We actually reviewed that option with some freelancers and that was the option they liked the least. It left too much room for interpretation.

Then probably Upworks enterprise clients' rates will also be shown on the freelancer's profiles that are mostly hidden at the moment.
