Availability Badge Price Increase

Community Manager

Effective January 3, the price of turning on the Availability Badge increased from 6 Connects to 7 Connects. 


The price of the badge fluctuates for many reasons, including based on demand. We're continuously monitoring prices to better learn how this impacts the market.


Freelancers always have complete control over how many Connects they’re willing to spend for the Availability Badge. We automatically turn off the badge after it hits the maximum number of Connects that freelancers are willing to spend, and we notify affected freelancers.


Clients see the Availability Badge in search results, recommendations, and on a freelancer’s profile, which lets them know that a freelancer is eager for new work. Freelancers can turn the Availability Badge on and off as needed to signal when they're ready to take on new clients. In addition, freelancers can always turn off the badge at any time if they don’t need it.
