I am somehow new to upwork. Although, I have an Upwork account from 2016 but didn't activate until this year.
My question is about DIrect Contracts, and I didn't find what I want in Upwork Community nor in any other place.
When starting Direct Contracts, do these contracts affect the Job Success Score or not.
Thanks for your question. Since your client and you will only be using Upwork for payments, any Direct Contracts will not impact your Upwork reputation metrics (for example your Job Success Score or Top Rated status). These contracts also will not be included in your other Upwork profile stats, such as total earnings, number of jobs, etc.
