How do I turn off the "feature my job for $29.99" offer when posting a job?

Hi Keith, 

I have shared your account information with the Customer Support Team, and a member of their team will reach out to you with more information about the issue.

The whole featured job or promoted response business is a money-maker for UW, and their right to promote it. As a provider, I don't want my response promoted because that's just a bright shiny object. I want to work for clients who aren't distracted by bright shiny objects. As a client, most of my jobs are invitation only. Anybody who responds with a bright shiny object doesn't pass the brains test to work for me, or thinks I'm impressed with fluff. In either case, I reject the response.

 

Clients with multiple successful jobs understand that if the job is sufficiently interesting, good freelancers will find it whether it's featured or not.

 Just as well that there is no such option on Upwork then.

 Once again, there is no possibility that any freelancer to do that. You have claimed previously that you receive such proposals. It is impossible that you have, because there is no such function.  You are likely mixing up platforms. On Upwork there is no such thing as featuring or promoting a proposal.

Petra, you are probably correct that I am mixing up platforms. I do almost no online work and mostly hire on a less ... uptight ... board, or offline.

Actually I believe Bill was thinking about the eLance days as this was a feature.  

 

The same comment can be applied to the Featured Job (for $25) on Upwork.
