Hi Sandeep,

 

Thank you for your message. I am sorry to hear about the trouble while purchasing Connects. In general, this happens when the transactions you’re attempting on your card keep being declined by the bank. Please contact your card-issuing bank for more information about the specific charge decline.

If you’re still experiencing issues after checking with your bank, a quick way to contact our support team is by selecting Get Support at the bottom of the Help Center page.

 

Thank you

Pradeep

Hello. I am having problems with the purchase of the connects. I contacted the bank with this problem, they replied that everything is working on their side and no transaction from Upwork has been received.
It seems to be a problem in my account or on your side, please help solve this problem.
I have attached a screenshot.

Hey I am also facing same problem with the SBI Global debit card and asked the bank and they said they didnt got any such transaction and don't know what to do, they said to check with the upwork site for the solution. Pls help.

 

**Edited for Community Guidelines**

 

I also asked them about any recurring transaction limitation on the debit card. They said there is no such limitation on your debit card. I have also already enabled international usage for my debit card. Still this error is coming.

I am replying to this to help each newbie who is here due to this issue.
I tried to attach my debit card, but each time it was rejected. I called the bank helpline, but they didn't get my issue.
Then I called once more on another day.
Here's the process:
Dial the bank's helpline number that issued your card.
Ask them to put you on their whitelist for the Upwork website.
They then instructed you to retry the card-attaching process.
You have to try again and then after 15 minutes call again to a helpline to be placed on Upwork's whitelist.
You can then attach the card.
PS: Don't visit the bank branch to waste your time. They even don't know the process. Just call the helpline.

But agency has 27 connects. that's not enough for turn availability plan on?

Hi Jais,

 

That depends since the weekly price of the badge will fluctuate based on demand, but you control your Connects, so you determine the maximum number you’d like to spend for a week.

Facing Issue while buying connects through by Visa Card. Kindly resolve the issue

Hi Muhammad,

 

I checked and it looks like the transaction was declined. It would be best to reach out to your card issuing bank to check the specific decline error. This can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. If you aren’t able to use a credit card or prepaid card or you don’t have an Upwork balance, in many cases you’ll be able to use PayPal. To see the options available to you, click here.
