Hi Nauman, 


Please know that we have announced awhile back about some changes to Connects. Connects can now be purchased in bundles and you may read more about it here, and here

Let us know if you have other questions about this change, and our team will be happy to help.

Hi Felix,

 

Please follow the steps I posted yesterday on this thread and select a membership plan in order to receive your monthly allotment of Connects.

Hi Felix,as i discovered you have to actively choose a subscription before you get any connects. usually by clicking the green button of one of the subscriptions. You then immediately receive your connects.

Hi Hamza, 

I would just like to clarify that you do not need to pay $10 to get Connects. You may opt for the Freelancer Basic plan which included free 60 connects every month. The Freelancer Plus plan, at $10 per month, issues an additional 10 connects on top of the free 60 connects every month. 

You may read up on this help article for more information on the Freelancer Plus and Freelancer Basic plans.

Shes right ^

How can we get above 70 connects or unlimited? There are so many jobs I can complete but not enough “connects” given.

Ramsin,

 

If you subscribe to Membership Plus, you'll be able to purchase additional connects and benefit from connects rollover.  Check out this help article for more information about that.

 

It is recommended that freelancers are selective about what jobs they apply to, only apply to jobs that they are absolutely sure they can complete and take time to craft well-written and targeted proposals.
