Good evenning,

I am newbie and have submitted 23 proposals in the last month untill I ran out of connects. Didn't get any job yet but have been in touch with several buyers and it looks promising. My question is : can I submit further proposals without upgrading to a higher account? How?

Thank you!

No, you cannot get more free connects. You can buy more, or wait until your membership refresh date to get your free connects.

Hi Basit,

 

Could you please clarify your question? Were you referring to Billing Cycle? If so, you can check that information on the Membership & Connects page and under the 'Current Billing Cycle' section. If you were referring to something else, feel free to follow up so that we can assist you further.

 

Thank you.

Hi Addison,

 

All freelancers were moved to paid connects only. This means that freelancers on our Basic plan won't be receiving free connects anymore. Thank you.

Yes.

 

You can submit more proposal without upgrading to the "premium" account.

 

A full complement of connects are renewed every month. You receive 60 connects for FREE each month, without needing to pay anything.

Hi there, 

 

I haven't received any new connects for months now. How do I get more free connects?

 

I think it's ridiculous that we have to buy them. A portion of the money we make already goes to Upwork. We shouldn't have to fork out yet more money.

You seem to already be aware that you have to buy connects, so why are you asking for free connects?
