Hi Pete, 

You should be able to purchase additional Connects on your account by going to this page of your account (Settings > Membership & Connects). From there, please click on the "Add More Connects" button.

Let me know if this isn't the case for you so that I can look into this further.

This question comes up from time to time I've noticed, and also by myself a while ago. I think it's simply a matter of this. 

 

People know where to buy connects. 

But in the mobile app, it's not a possibility. 

 

Which is a bit strange. I'd say Upwork would sell a lot more connects if that function was implemented. In the pipe, maybe?

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.

I am not able to find where I purchase connects. I have the basic membership, so if I need the next level up to be able to purchase connects, how do I go about doing that?

Hi Katherine,

 

To purchase additional Connects:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Memberships & Connects
  3. Click Add More 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.

 

Thank you.

I just want to point out that your link is linking to someone's email address, rather than the URL that I think you intended on linking to. Might want to edit that Smiley Wink

Appreciate the flag, Jeff! Robot Happy

I have edited it to flag the correct link. (I've been having clipboard issues on my Mac. Robot Sad)

No worries, although now that I've quoted you, I just realized I can't edit MY comment, to remove said link either....?!
