What is 'Connects' means, is it another word of application. I applied for 22 jobs. Now my connects is 0. Actually if the basic connects are 60, how this is happened? Can anybody explain with simple english.

Hello Mahesh,

 

Thankx for your reply. But I have already read the article you sent me.

Did you listen, this article made with complex explanation. Article says 'Connects are virtual tokens'

and 'Most proposals require two Connects'. These all are confusing terms. What is the clear explation about '2 connects' for a project instead of 1. Why this following quote 'Required Connects to submit a proposal: 2 ' writen under the 'Propsal Submit' button. This is not a clear definition.

 

Thanks!

Inflation and banker's rounding.

 

A connect just doesn't buy what it used too.

 

No more Canadian pennies either. Need at least a nickel.

Connects are Upwork's currency. You need them to apply to jobs. Free plan gives a freelancer 60 connects per month. If they get over, you can buy more for 1 dollar per connect.

 

Please take English lessons/classes so that you can get jobs and finish them successfully. Otherwise, Upwork might not work out for you.

Connects are tokens used to apply for jobs. Each job required 2 tokens. You are provided 60 free tokens each month and they are renewed each month on the same date.

As per the expert explanation, Connects are Upwork's currency. You need them to apply to jobs. Upwork giving
60 free connects to us. We need minimum 2 connects to apply a job. ie. most jobs are require two Connects (sometimes it may vary as per the size and type of project). If we apply for 1 job. We'll spend or lose 2 connects from our total connects. Connects will refresh everymonth. It start from the date which you registered as a member. As per your register date is '03-18-2016' it will refresh every month on 18th.
