Agency Plus membeship is good for what?

screenshot_234.png

What else is an Agency Plus account good for, except for having like a million Connects? Upwork could at least throw in some GB of storage space, seeing I get 2TB from DB for the same amount of money. Also, what stops me from paying 20$ once, add members to my agency, and stop the payments?

Hi Ivan, Thanks for your message. You will see on this article the difference between the basic and plus membership. Plus membership gives you additional Connects, privileges, visibility into competitors bids, or to add team members to grow your agency. You may also check on this helpful article the difference between the two plans. Hope this helps.

Jo-An, thank you very much for your reply. I went through every single article on Upwork since I started working here, and they helped me build an awesome profile and a freelancer career I dreamed of. Unfortunately, my problem is that I only needed the Plus plan to add more members to my Agency. I honestly don't need the extra connects - my employees and I receive plenty of work with what we have, and we maintain great client relationships, making sure that we have long-lasting contracts.

 

I'm hesitant to ask again: what stops me from adding freelancers to my roster (which is why I needed the Plus in the first place), and then simply withdrawing from the plan. This seems to affect nothing, as I've done this before and it worked like a charm. Maybe a one-time payment for each freelancer I add to my team is a more elegant solution? I also don't care to have the insight on other freelancer's bids as I usually charge what I think is a fair price, without comparing to other freelancers on Upwork.

I'm aware that this is probably outside your scope of action. I will present my issue through another channel and hope it gets heard from someone who designs the platform.

Thank you!

Ivan V.

Hi Ivan,

 

Apologies for the late follow-up on your posts. Note that once the Agency membership is downgraded, agency contractors are unable to submit proposal or get hired, in addition to not having access to the other features Jo and you mentioned.

 

Let me know if you or your agency members were able to submit proposals after you downgraded the membership plan.

Thanks for sharing your suggestion, I can confirm we don't have any plans at the moment for updating the Agency membership plan options.

Hi Vladimir! Yes, I can confirm that I was able to get a job through my agency, however, It might have just received an offer from my previous client, I can't remember if I submitted any proposals. I guess we'll have to keep subscribing from now on.

 

I'm sad to hear that the Plus plan is not going to get improved, but hey, that's just life throwing lemons ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Off to make some lemonade hahahah ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you!

Thanks for clarifying Ivan. I'd like to ask you to pm me the contract ID so I can take a look. Also, feel free to contact me directly if you come across a different flow than the one I described moving forward.
