You must have a minimum of $10k earned during the last 12 months, and in your category you need to have worked on one big contract (value of the contract must be $10k or more) in the last year.

Incorrect if only your field of expertise demands 10k earning in large
contract in past 12 months. Then only you will be in plus. Otherwise for
software dev its 15k in large contract. In past 12 months. For logo design
its 5k. For others its 10k. In 1 large contract.

Hence whatever it may be. Based on your field of expertise. One must have a
positive review. In that contract.

Just simply go to stats you will see all requirement written over their.

It's better be expert vetted in top rated plus.

Plus makes you top 3% of upwork. Where as expert vetted makes you top 1% of
upwork. So if you have an invite expert vetted should go for that.

Not incorrect at all.

He is an accountant and the minmum contract size for him is $ 10,000.

The "minimum of $10,000 overall earnings in the previous year" is valid for everyone.

That's not true either.

As I was completing some research on UpWork, I noticed that there is an expert vetted freelnacer that has posted on his public profile $1k+ earnings, 9 total jobs, and 1 Total Hours.  Based on this thread, this does not seem like this freelancer has been in the space for a while with a lot of track record.  He did have 7 completed jobs with most of them having 5 star review.  In reading the UpWork literature, the profile appears to be a rising talent (as they don't really meet Top rated talent).  I do see that he is part of a talent cloud.  Would it be a correct assumption that this would validate the expert vetted.  Does the work completed in the talent cloud appear on the public facing profile?

 

Could you please advise if my assumption is correct?

Based on your Stack you need to complete one large contract. if web
software mobile dev you are. then you need a contract for 15k or above with
positive feedback from client. then you will get the plus badge.

Hi everyone.

I have earned Top Rated Plus, but month ago it disappeared without any notification. I have all required conditions (meet all criteria) and twice asked help from UpWork support. I even found possible reason to help a team to solve the problem but they didn't fix it.

 

First time support told that it is known issues and will be fixed soon. And day later he told me that it is fixed and close the case. Second support person approved that it is an bug issue (not mine) but my problem wasn't solved in a day or couple, and even in 2 weeks+.

 

So I have couple questions:

- Is somebody else have the same problem?

- Why support and team doesn't fix problems?

- Why there are no advantages comparing to "Top Rated" ? (I hardly earn it and now there no advantages, even some problems).

 

Screenshots attached below, and aprove meeting of all criteria, and show possible problem.

Hi Anatolii,

 

I can understand that it can be frustrating. I know that you worked hard to earn the Top Rated Plus status. I can see that you already have an open ticket regarding this issue. One of our agents will update your ticket and assist you further.

Hi Robinson,

 

Top Rated Plus freelancers have a great reputation on Upwork and also have met the following criteria:

 

  • Earned more than $10,000 in total earnings (all contracts included) the past 12 months

  • Worked on one of more large* projects in the past 12 months without negative feedback

  • Are not an exclusive agency contractor

  • Maintained Top Rated status

 

What is considered a large project can vary depending on skill category. For example, in certain categories a large job might be one with earnings of $5,000 but in others it might be a $20,000 or $30,000 contract. 

 

Thanks!
