I had 98% job success score and recently it dropped to 95%.     I am not sure to reason for that. Last few months I have done well.


But there are 2 contracts paused by Upwork. Those two contracts I have done my part and waiting for clients response. It was around 2 months now and I did not receive any reply from them.


My question is these paused contracts effect my JS?


If yes can I close those?


Best Regards

Dear Thisalaka ! I don't think that Paused contracts are effecting your overall Job Success rate. I have 4 x paused contracts from more than 3 months and I am still at 99%. 


I noticed a special thing while my working on upwork. If we earn at least $100 in 15 days our JSR remains the same or increased. If you were unable to earn at least $100 in month they will gradually drop your JSR.


I hope you understand what I said.


No need to close contract from yourside, it will definately effect your JSR and it may drop some percents. So search for long terms jobs and work hard. Stay blessed.
