You’ll see your monthly free Connects added on your next billing cycle date. Not sure when your billing cycle begins? You can find this date on your “Memberships and Connects” page under User Settings.
Regarding your billing method, we checked, and it looks like the decline error is from your issuing bank. I also noticed that you have added Paypal. Once this method is activated, you may use it to purchase Connects.
hi i am afreelancer from pakistan i want to buy some new connects by credit card but it says this when i click the credit cards option "Sorry, a critical component of this page failed to load. Please reload the page."
This error is showing every time I try to buy connects.
Moreover, I have also contacted my bank and they have said my card is working fine.
I also cleared my cache as it was suggested by a fellow upwork member in the previous posts.
Can any one please guide me how to fix this issue.
Hi Syed Ali,
I'm sorry to hear you've had trouble buying Connects. I'd like to clarify that some card-issuing banks will restrict the use of debit cards on Upwork due to the payments being classified as 'recurring'. Please, make sure that you are filling all the required fields correctly and that your card-issuing bank allows recurring transactions. Alternatively, you may use any other of the available billing methods.
