Upcoming Changes to Connects :
Upwork is revamping the structure and pricing of Connects to help professional freelancers and agencies find and win more contracts. We will be rolling out this new Connects plan to existing users over the months of May and June. New users signing up may see the change as early as the end of April.
Here’s how the new Connects will work:
When the change takes effect, Connects will cost $0.15 each and we will no longer be providing users with 60 free Connects (or 80 free for agencies) each month. Submitting a proposal will no longer cost 0-2 Connects and will range from 1-6 Connects, depending on the job post. However, proposals submitted to invites from clients will remain free.
We will calculate the number of Connects needed to submit a proposal based on the projected job value. This isdetermined using the estimated duration and budget amount for the job, as well as marketplace demand. Essentially, a longer-term job with a high budget will require more Connects than a small short-term, entry-level project.
