Upwork's business model is not to "sell a lot more connects" - it's serious freelancers making them a lot of money in fees.
I would hazard a guess that the freelancers who make them the most money actually buy the fewest connects.
To purchase additional Connects:
This can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. If you aren’t able to use a credit card or prepaid card or you don’t have an Upwork balance, in many cases you’ll be able to use PayPal. Check the options available to you and learn more about acceptable billing methods for paying memberships.
Hi there... I just wanted to ask why I got only 20 connects on signing up...??? it depends on country or what???
As I received only 20 connects, now after I've spent all of them, now I've no connects to use. Kindly guide me where to buy them and Will I get the other 40 connects from the previous 60 connects or not???
After their registration is accepted, a new freelancer receives 20 free Connects to help get them started. According to our new Connects policy, you'll need to purchase Connects in order to submit proposals. Connects are sold in the following bundles: 10 for $1.50, 20 for $3, 40 for $6, 60 for $9, 80 for $12. Purchasing Connects can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. Additionally, if you have a balance on Upwork you can use it to buy Connects. To purchase connects, please go to your Settings > Membership & Connects and there, you'll see a button that says 'Add More Connects' from where you can continue with the purchase.
