Hi

 

I just entered upwork.

Isn't there any free connect?

No, you will need to choose a plan best for your needs. You can read about it here:

Even if you opt for the free membership plan, you still need to purchase connects in order to bid on projects.

Hi Nicholas, 

You should have received 20-free connects to get you started on Upwork. I have escalated this to the team, and the Customer Support Team will reach out to you to assist you further.

Hi, I have a problem: I created my profile 2 days ago, it got approved, and I didn't get any connects. I saw that there is a problem with getting connects and I waited 24h, but nothing has changed. I still have 0 connects

(my profile is 100% filled, and I have my own profile picture on)

David, going forward there are no more free connects on Upwork.  This is a recent change they started implementing last month.  I am sure someone will come along and tell you this more officially but you can read a thread about it here:

Hello, Community.

I joined on upwork yesterday and I'm strange on upwork.

Today I try to bid, but I can't bid due to insufficient connections.

Now how can I bid to job?
