How to get connects

Hi Levi,

 

Your account was registered before the new Connects policy so you are not eligible for receiving 20 bonus connects for new freelancers. In your case, you'll need to purchase Connects in order to submit proposals. Connects are sold in the following bundles: 10 for $1.50, 20 for $3, 40 for $6, 60 for $9, 80 for $12. Purchasing Connects can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. Additionally, if you have a balance on Upwork you can use it to buy Connects.

 

Thank you.

Hi Goran,

 

I'm new here, so if I am getting it correctly I cannot submit proposal nor apply in any Jobs posted unless I have connect please correct me if I'm wrong.

 

If so, then how are we freelancers (newbie) can start working without anything?

 

Thank and regards,

 

Deo

Hi Deo,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. Yes, you are correct. You can not send proposals unless you have available Connects. 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

All of these Connects expire one year from the date of issue. You can purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. Please note that this can vary based on your location. Additionally, you can buy Connects using your Upwork balance or PayPal. Lastly, to view your Connects History report, go to the “Reports” tab and choose Connects History.

 

Thank you.

Hi Ankit,

 

At the moment we don't have free connects or promo codes. If you would like to send proposals you will need to purchase more connects. Thank you.

Hello!
My name is Joseph and I'd like to ask you something.
I have signin on Upwork a month ago and 20/09 was the date I would get the 60 connections,but I got only 30 connections.
Maybe it was mistake and I thought I would get additional 30 connections soon, but I don't still get it.
I want to work here and I love Upwork.
I hope you will solve it asap.
Thank you.
