I wish to submit a proposal, but have 0 connects, I just joined. The explanations for the basic and upgraded membership for freelancers doesn't say anything about connects under the basic membership info.
I guess this is time sensitive so I can do the proposal. I appreciate any help on this!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, you get 60 connects per month with the basic plan. However, your profile has to be approved before you can submit bids. If that has happened and you still have no connects showing, check to make sure that you have selected the basic plan--you have to choose one or the other before connects are awarded.
After signing up, your account will take up to 12 hours before it is approved and profile published.
It is only after approval that you shall get 60 connects.
I would propose you keep checking your mails until when you see get the approval email.
I just checked your account and can see you still haven't chosen any Freelancer plan yet. Please go to Settings > Membership & Connects so that you can choose between the Freelancer Basic and Plus plans.
