Is this feature still available? Because I am not sure that I can find the "Refer a Freelancer" Button in the invitations that I receive.Refer.JPG

Hi Youssef,

 

Please know that we're testing referrals with a limited amount of freelancers. Eventually, our plan is that every freelancer on Upwork will be able to refer someone for job invites.

Thank you, Andrea, for your reply. I was asking because I wanted to refer another freelancer to this job post that I received an invitation to. I accepted the invitation and referred him to the client in the cover letter by introducing him properly and adding his Upwork profile link.

I like this idea but I really think freelancers need a way to chat with each other. Someone referred a client to me and the job wasn't the best fit so I declined it.  I felt terrible doing that - I do not know the person who referred me but I really wish he would have been able to contact me first and we could chat about it so that the client didn't get declined by him AND me.

So excited for this offering! I have made so many people join Upwork and they struggle a bit initially, this will be a great opportunity for me to help them further by referring the jobs I don't do anymore. 

 

Keep up the good work, Upwork!

Hey Upwork,

 

Can you please do some proofreading on https://www.upwork.com/freelancer-referrals ?

 

Lots of words/punctuation/complete sentence missing.

 

"That means they considered who the client was looking for, and when they saw your "

"The action taken by the freelancer you refer "

"Referring a freelancer does not include a monetary bonus, but a referral can be helpful to both freelancers and clients:"

 

I also see some weird spacing.

 

Thanks.
