I just signed up as a Freelancer and I see my Connects balance is zero. I thought you would get 60 free connects but it seems as if all connects need to be purchased. Would be appreciated if someone could shed light on this.
All the best
I just checked your profile and it looks like you have already been issued your 60 connects. You should be able to check your connects balance by going to your Settings > Membership & Connects page.
Since you're new, I would like to invite you to visit the freelancer resources we compiled to help you get started on the platform.
Good luck and welcome to Upwork!
