I am on my way to Top Rated. I was wondering if there is any advantage in being Top rated plus Vs just Top rated?
Just debating if it is worth getting stuck in one job for a long time to get the plus badge or keep working on short gigs which are more fun.
It looks like top-rated and top-rated plus have the same benefits. Moreover, free clients (majority of the jobs) don't see any difference in the badge either.
Anyone with top-rated plus - did it feel worth it? Why?
I've found that I'm getting significantly more invitations since I got the top-rated plus badge, so I'm quite happy to do longer projects in order to hang onto it. (It's not a problem for me, since I prefer them anyway. Short projects consume a lot of my initial time and energy just to get off the ground, plus the time spent having to find new projects more frequently.)
Top Rated Plus is a new variation of Top Rated status. It’s especially for freelancers who not only have a history of delivering great work to their clients on Upwork, but have also taken on larger projects. Clients have told us that they have a difficult time finding talent that are both interested in larger projects and also have a track record of working on them on Upwork. You can check this help article for more information.
I encountered the following problem.
I have a design contract that passed the threshold of $5000 this Monday. According to the Terms, it has to be classified as a large contract. Unfortunately, when the client created the contract they marked it as “Web, Mobile and Software Development”, and the threshold for that category is much higher. But this is not a development contract, and I am not a developer. I am a designer, and this is a purely design contract.
I referred to the support, and they said they are not going to do anything, and they cannot help me.
The contract is defined by the type of work that is done, not by some checkbox deep within the settings. The client did not even pay much attention to it.
Is there anything that can be done about it?

Hello Upworkers! I'd like to clarify something that has been going...
I am currently working towards becoming top rated plus (currently at Top-Rated Status).
My question is simple, although I am a bit confused.
In order to become a top rated plus, I should have made 10.000 within the last 12 months, or do I have to have made 10k and participated in a large contract as well? Can I become a top rated plus solely by having earned 10k from different clients, or I need to have both made 10k and have a large contract?
I have made 7000 within the last 12 months but ended the contract, and am wondering whether all I need now is more 3000 (from a new client), or a new project that is going to earn me a large-contract of 10000+ dollars.
I hope I have made my doubt clear enough
The criteria for becoming Top Rated Plus is:
Every condition needs to be met in order to receive the badge. I suggest checking this help article for more information. You can also go to Find Work > My Stats and check the 'Do you qualify for Top Rated Plus?' section to see whether you're meeting all the requirements or not.
(oops! I seem to have put this in the wrong place but can see no way to delete it. I'm copying this to the right place. Perhaps a mod could delete this for me? Thanks!)
I'm bidding on a job outside of the Upwork platform but wanted to point out my history and rating here,
Whenever I link someone to information from any platform, I always test out what the recipient will see, assuming they can't log in. So I've just discovered that when I access my Upwork profile when not logged in, I only see the top rated badge, not the top rated plus.
Is this by accident or by design? If by accident, can it be fixed?

In fact, most clients don't see the Top Rated Plus badge even when they are logged in either.
Petra is correct, it's by design that only Business, Enterprise, and some Plus clients are able to see the Top Rated Plus badge. Visitors can't view the badge.
