I don't usually exceed the 60-connects-per-month limit but when I do I'd like to be able to purchase connects as needed instead of having to switch to a monthly subscription plan. Elance had this option allowing Contractors to purchase extra connects but following the merger we only have Freelancer Basic and Freelancer Plus plans.
Are there any plans to bring this back?
I know that Freelancer Plus contractors have the option to buy connects but given that we would be paying for said connects I think Freelancer Basic contractors should have this option as well. Hell, if Upwork were to charge Freelancer Basic contractors a slightly higher fee I'd still be for it as its not a service I see myself using regularly.
