Hi guys,

 

I want to try the plus membership plan but am not totally clear about the connects. What I understand is, If I subscribe to plus membership plan then I am gonna get total 70 connects per month. Dose it include the 60 connect from my free membership? I mean if I upgrade my ID then my total connect will be 60 + 70 = 130, am I right? If wrong then can anyone please explain to me in a month, how many connects can I have in plus membership?

 

Thanks.

No. It will be 70 altogether, plus (if you did not use all 70 during the previous month,) any which you did not use (rollover)

No, you get 70 connects total. Depending on when you upgrade, you will get pro-rated connects to reflect that, so you will get - to stay in your example - 60+10=70 connects.

That means only 5 extra bid (Its not that much though) and if I want to bid more then I can buy extra connects for $1 each that means $2 per bid. Do you think its gonna affect my profile dramatically? I mean how beneficiary can I be if I became a plus member?

Other than having more bids and being able to see the bid range on job posts, it makes zero difference, it certainly does not "affect your profile" in any way.

The main way it can affect your profile is you can make your earnings private if you want to. However, clients will still see your earnings when you send a proposal.

re: "That means only 5 extra bid" (I read that wrong!)

 

10, actually. Free gets 60/mo, Plus gets 70/mo. Plus (hehheh) the connects rollover month to month up to 140/mo max so if you don't use them all one month they don't just all disappear.

Also, it does "protect" your profile if you're not earning any incoming through Upwork for 30 days. Without Plus, inactive members profiles get set to private (meaning you won't show up in any Clients' searches; but you can still submit proposals) and would have to get Upwork support to make it public again if you wanted to appear in searches.

5, actually. He said  "5 bids" and with each bid "costing"2 connects, 10 connects are 5 bids
