Hi there, I have a confusion about my 12 Month Earnings... I started doing work on Upwork on December 2016 and I landed my First Job in February. So the thing is now my 12 Month Earning is decreasing as I get paid to new jobs. What's the issue? and How will I get the Top Rated Badge on the profile? like if I have earned a Total of $1000+ Can I get that Badge then or it has to be $1000 in 12 Month Earnings.. I think it's the same thing.. Please clear this out.. Thanks

Obviously it is not the same thing.
To qualify for top rated status you must have earnings of at least $ 1000 during the last 12 months.
So only what you earned after the 5th of March 2017 counts today, only what you have earned after the 6th of March 2017 counts tomorrow and so on.

Because money earned before 5th of March no longer counts.It is a rolling window.
If you earn less this week than in the week that falls out of the 12 month window, then it decreases.
For Top-rated eligibility what the 12 months earning at least 1000 means?
Is it from the account opening day or the running 12 months from past? My profile opening is about 12 months now but my earning is something below 1000$. So if my earning remains below 1000 in this 12 months from profile opening date and in future my earnings if 1000+ in 12 months period, can I be eligible for Top rated?
The 12-month count doesn't start on the day you opened your account. You should have earned atleast $1000 in the past 12-months, regardless of when you opented your account, to be eligible for the Top Rated Program. I hope this clarifies things!
