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???

Hi Junaid,

 

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.

 

Thank you.

How long does it take for connects to refresh? Is it at the beginning of each new month? Quarterly? Monthly?

If you have a plus membership, it's monthly based on your billing cycle. If you don't, there is no "refreshing." You purchase new connects as you need them, or purchase a bunch to work off of for a while (they're good for one year).

Where on the sir It app do you purchase connects? I tried looking and couldn’t find an option to purchase on the website. Also where do you go if you want to upgrade your membership.

Hi Joanne, 

I'm wondering how do I buy connects from Upwork directly, without a need to use any cards?
Thanks

Hi Raju and Blend,

 

This will depend on your location but all freelancers can purchase connects only with a prepaid card or a credit card. Thank you.
