Hello - I am hoping to get Top Rated Plus. For the longest time, I thought (for my niche) a long-term contract was $10K with a given CLIENT. I mean, now I realize it says its right there...Long-Term-CONTRACT; but I didn't give it a second thought.
Well, my client had some questions on changing my pay rate, so they ended up closing contracts and starting a new one with a rate. This has happened long in the past; we're on our 3rd contract (3rd pay raise, really), but I realized that I basically reset my progress to $10K (for accounting/consulting TRP).
I know this was an oversight on my part, but is there some way to combine these contracts, or reopen contract #2 (which was closest to the TRP threshold)?
The Top Rated Plus freelancers have earned Top Rated status 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.
Thank you for the response; I saw the same in the description for what Top Rated Plus is, and I understand the requirements for Top-Rated Plus.
For my category, the "large contract" $10,000.
My question was related to the 2nd bullet in your response (which again, is what I already saw on the basic TRP description page) - because I overlooked that this had to be on a single contract (vs. a single client), I basically have "started over" since my client created a new contract when he wanted to give me a new pay rate.
My question is if I can either A) merge contracts, and B) re-open an old contract since the older contract was the "closest" to this $10,000 threshhold.
Anyone know why your profile (even if you have Top Rated Plus/Exp Vet) when someone looks at your profile (in incognito or not logged in/haven't signed up yet) your profile only shows you are Top Rated? It's kind of misleading... potential client may think you are just Top Rated.

Exp Vet is shown only to Enterprice clients, pro clients see Top Rated Plus and other see Top Rated.
You misread my writing bud, wasn't asking about that. Try viewing your own profile using incognito you'll see what I mean (if you are Top Rated Plus and higher).
