Haven't been keeping up with the topic much, has someone asked / answered why connects have an expiration date now? I can understand the free connects expiring, but why will the purchased connects expire?


ETA: Nvm, found the answer


Why will connects expire after a year? They were many constraints - some Upwork, some "external".

Expiration period is long, rollovers are high -- they want you to use the connects. Not to hoard connects.

Hi Ines, Thanks for reaching out and apologies for the delayed response. For accounting reasons, Connects need to have an expiration date. However, we did want to give freelancers as much time as possible to use them, so a Connect will remain valid for one year from purchase.
