Your Previous Earning Visible on Your Public Profile

I haven't visited my public profile for a while as I haven't been accepting any new projects.

 

I was surprised to learn that clients and other freelancers can now see not just your previous client's feedback and rating and number of hours worked, but also your total earnings.

 

I think the total earnings are too personal to be shared publicly. This should only be something between you and your client. I believe that most of you would also feel this way. 

 

I learned that the only way to remove or hide them is to upgrade your freelancer profile to Plus. Why should we be forced to upgrade just to hide a personal information like this?

 

Let me know your thoughts, because I am pushing this be hide option given freely and not for Upwork to force talents to pay for it.

 

Thank you!

The price or rate per job has always been visible, unless by 'for a while" you mean for more than a year. I joined Upwork in January of 2016 and earnings were visible then.

 

The addition of the aggregate earnings to the sidebar along with total hours worked is a significant benefit to those who primarily work fixed price jobs. For example, for most of my Upwork career, my hours stood at 2...however, I'd earned more than $25,000 on fixed price jobs. The addition of the $20,000+ to my sidebar underneath the misleading 2 hour figure made an immediate difference in the number and quality of invitations I received.

Hi June Romajeusse,

 

Please check the announcement Lena posted mid-December and check the information we shared in our replies on the thread. I understand your standpoint regarding this update and do see you're already aware about the option freelancer have to hide this information.
