Re: Not understandable of connects used for proposal

Hi, everyone!

I noticed I use different count of connects depend on job posting.

Some require 2 and some others require 4.

But what I don't understand is this one.

**edited for Community Guidelines**

 

I thought less than 1 month and less than 10 hours require 2 connects.

But it requires 6 connects

 

Hope to hear any explanation from someone.

Thanks

I don't know how they exactly configure connects but I have some idea.

 

I've discovered that:

  • Hourly jobs require more connects.
  • Long-term jobs require more connects.
  • High prices require more connects.
  • 'Hours to be determined' jobs require more connects. 

I also think that this discussion can help you.

Hi Carmen, 

We calculate the number of Connects needed based on the projected job duration, budget amount and marketplace demand. Once a job is posted, however, we may lower the number of Connects needed to encourage more freelancers to submit proposals. In these cases, if you submitted a proposal shortly after the job was posted you might be required to use more Connects than someone who submits a proposal a few days later, for example. We do not refund Connects in these cases.


Also, the team will follow up with you with more information about your account.

There is no algorithm Upwork will share. Some jobs require 6 connects, others 4 or 2 and some even 1. It depends on criteria the client enters when posting a job - length, budget, etc.

Carmen, use an accurate image of yourself or you will be suspended. You are no Adam Levine.
