Hi Isabelle, following up on the question you raised earlier.

 

As part of the new subscription plan, some new clients are offered a free trial, after which they will be charged the regular membership fee. While having the Plus badge displayed is beneficial for all users, freelancers should still follow the same best practice steps in reviewing new job posts. We recommend that freelancers check the client’s payment method status, since there are other instances in which a client would still have a Plus badge displayed while having an unverified payment method, for example in case their credit card expires.

I saw my first Plus badge this morning ... and it surprised me that their payment method was unverified. I'd assumed that would be a criteria a client would have to meet to have a Plus badge.

@Vlad, thanks for clarifying; I suppose that a trial will make this more attractive to clients.

 

@Wendy, had no idea -- thanks for confirming! Will pay more attention to those job posts from now on ...

Vlad, I PMed you 3 RFPs marked as U. PLUS Client - all of which showed as unverified and with no history showing.  Does this mean that U just decided to dangle a carrot or is hiding all history of Plus clients the new norm?

 

You're welcome, Isabelle.  Smiley Happy

Hello Experts,

Take my best regards. I have a curiosity. I never have seen this badge of "

Upwork Plus Client". And this was the first job post of the client without payment verification! Could anyone please inform something more about this...please? Thanks in advance.

Wendy, 

 

As Vladimir already stated, some new clients are offered a free trial to Upwork Plus, so their payment method would not automatically be on file. As with any new clients just signing up they will not have a work history yet, and may not have a verified payment method already. Information is not being hidden, they just don't have them yet. 

 

Your repetitive posts have been removed,

 

Lena
