Hi,

 

What if client have hire more than one freelancers from the agency and spend more than 30k USD? becase in application development, generally client hire designer, android developer, ios developer, api developer and backend developer and from all these frelancer have saperate trackers so overall amount can rise more than 30k but if you see individual member of freelancers then it might be below 30k. what would you do in that situation?

 

if you see our agency have more than one clients whom have hired more freelancers and spent more than 30k usd.

I just want to ask this. Are these new badges are available if you do not pay for a Freelancer Plus or Agency account?

Hi Konstantinos,

 

Yes, freelancers subscribed to the Basic membership plan are eligible to receive the Top Rated Plus badge.

It looks like the new badges are finally visible to ordinary users. I've seen them for thr first time today.

Vetted by whom -- Upwork?? Don't make me laugh! 

 

Why oh why must you always create new hurdles for us to jump over Robot Sad Why can't you ever just let well enough alone?

What does the badge for health insurance look like?

 

I'd like to sign up since we're transitioning from a freelance platform to a full-time staffing agency.

Ugh, so many questions and annoyances about the way this is set up. One that's particular to me: I've had positive feedback from one client on multiple projects in the past 12 months. Collectively, these contracts from him have passed the $5K threshold for my category. But I won't qualify because the client set up a new contract for each task/project, instead of letting one contract accumulate over $5K (which is fine by me). But just for that I'm excluded from this??

 

Obviously I wouldn't care about having another gimmicky-looking badge on my profile if it weren't for the fact that not having these silly icons makes us lose out on potential work!

I'm in the same boat; in fact, one was an Enterprise client and Upwork emailed us both and said that we HAD to start a new contract because our "current contract is coming to an end", otherwise I'd be over $5,000 with that client now.

 

But Isabelle, Valeria says above that you DO qualify for the badge. Valeria, could you please explain? Is the $5,000 threshold (I'm in the design category) per project, or per client?

Hi Christine,

 

I'm checking with the team to confirm the answer to the question you raised. In the meantime, I checked your reports and would like to ask you to send me a private message with more information about the client you believe you passed the 5K threshold with. Based on the information I'm looking at you, unfortunately, don't meet all the Top Rated Plus badge requirements.
