When I look into a possible freelance job posting, I see this:
"Required Connects to submit a proposal: 2 "
As a NEW freelancer on here, how does one go about being able to submit connects? NO WHERE on this sitedo I find a clear and understandable way of how to do this?????
You now need to purchase connects to submit proposals to jobs posted. Connects are not sold individually, but bundles begin at $1.50 for 10 Connects. Regardless of which bundle you choose, all Connects are priced at $0.15 apiece. Here are your bundle options:

When you register you choose you membership. If you choose Basic Membership, you'll receive 60 connects in the beginning of each billing cycle. If you select Plus Membership, you'll receive 70 and will be able to roll over left over connects. Each time you apply for a job you'll need to use connects unless you are invited to apply by the client. You can check your connects history in your Settings> Membership & Connects.
You can check this help article for more information.
Thanks for the detailed explination.
But recently I have joined Upwork and my profile is verified. If I'm going to my Connects It's showing 0 and my profile is subscribed by Basic membership so, I should get 60 Connections by default right?
Yes that is correct but you will need to sign up to the Basic Plan. I just checked your profile and you still haven`t chosen a plan, you can do this by going to Settings > Membership plan.
If you would like to read more details about our membership plans check out this Help Article.

This means you need to buy connects: https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/211062898
I checked your account, and I can see that you were able to submit proposals. If the connects you have available are not enough for the number of connects required to submit a proposal, you will be notified automatically. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you!
The Connects required to submit a proposal can be seen on the project details page. Required Connects is shown at the top-right under the Submit Proposal and Save buttons.
