I really like knowing the dedication Upwork is having for all of us. However, I consider; As a personal opinion, that the waiting time to receive the money or payment (The 5 days) is long, that is, sometimes we need the money as soon as possible, we work for something, but waiting so long for it to be available is a lot , it's 5 days of waiting.


Another thing that I would like to see improved is the possibility of adding a third-party bank account in the United States; If possible, for Freelancers in Venezuela it is a true martyrdom to fight to obtain the maximum possible income.

Besides more free connects I would like to see the opportunity to bring my client to Upwork with no fees. It doesn't make sense to me to pay the share with Upwork for my client but this client might generate income for Upwork by hiring another Upworker for different needs. Is this concept being considered?
Thank you,

Hi Alicia,


Thanks for your feedback. This is actually something we already have available for our Top Rated talent. You should be able to access this post here for more information and I'll also share your account information with the team so they could reach out to you via email with the link.

That's great! Can you please confirm if I will be able to use the time tracker for the client I bring to Upwork? Thanks.

Yes, you can use the Upwork Time Tracker App to log your hours. For more information about how the Time Tracker works, I'd recommend that you please read this help article

Hi Katrina,

This announcement is really great and Thanks for it! 

Also besides connect, it will be Awesome to see Upwork reducing the Service fee from 20% to 10% or so, at least for Top-rated freelancers. So pls forward this suggestion to the Upwork Team. This will be the best announcement Upwork can make ever.Thanks!

Kind regards,

There are projects for that  6 connects are required  to submit proposal. So 10 connects per month are very little to move on.

Would you like the platform also to do the work for you?

More relaxing that way. Just wait for free money. 😉

We want to see the ELANCE Model back for agencies where agencies should be able to add or remove any team member, should be able to assign any task/job to any team member instead of direct hiring by the client.

Thanks Katrina!


Besides connects, it would be great to get a proper response from the support. 


I have a couple of open tickets with no response. 


I have given one of my team members the full agency admin access and we are still stuck because even the admin access does not allow him to view the reports and financial data. 


Been waiting on the issue for quite a while now.  

With Thanks,
