Hi David,

 

If you have used up all your free connects, you may purchase them from your account. This can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. If you aren’t able to use a credit card or prepaid card or you don’t have an Upwork balance, in many cases you’ll be able to use PayPal. To see the options available to you, click here. Thank you.

Hi,
I've joined your site as a basic user but got no connection.  
In "search jobs" I'm finding many jobs that match my professional experience. 
It will be good earning through your site if I can able to "send proposal".

Which I can't d currently. 

So what's the point to become Upwork Basic user when I can't submit a single proposal after opening the account?

Hi Julqernine, 

 

To submit proposals, you will now have to purchase connects. You may purchase them from your account. This can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. If you aren’t able to use a credit card or prepaid card or you don’t have an Upwork balance, in many cases you’ll be able to use PayPal. To see the options available to you, click here. Thank you.

Hi Nina

I’m new to Upwork. With the free basic plan coming with 60 free connects, after these are used up, do I need to purchase additional connects at 15 cents each, or are these just debited from any job I get. 

Thanks

Tom

Hi Tomas,

 

Going forward, Basic Membership doesn't include free connects. You can view FAQs about paid Connects and a video explaining the change from our Head of Product.

 

Please note that connects are not sold individually, but bundles begin at $1.50 for 10 Connects. Regardless of which bundle you choose, all Connects are priced at $0.15 apiece. Here are your bundle options:

 

  • 10 for $1.50
  • 20 for $3
  • 40 for $6
  • 60 for $9
  • 80 for $12

 

Thank you.

I got just 20 connects at the start of the month and now the new month has started but I still haven't received any connects. I'm on the basic membership plan.

Hi Bojan S, 

 

I am aware that when the connects are used up, I have to buy more. the thing is when I go to setting as per instruction, a "promo ccode" is required to fill in before I can buy more connects. So, what is a " promo code"?

 

Thanks for your support
