Starting August 16, 2023, the number of Connects required to submit a proposal at Upwork will range from 4 to 16 based on the project’s value. The number of Connects needed to submit for a project is determined by the size and scope of the project opportunity.
Our goal is to make the number of Connects per proposal better reflect the demand for work in the Marketplace. This change will help us facilitate better matches, increase flexibility to price projects accurately, and attract more top tier clients to the platform. We know this could impact your business, and that you may want to adjust how you select work and customize proposals.
