  • Be discoverable by keeping your profile active, even if you take a break
  • Be competitive with insight into competitor bid range on jobs

When will my plan be billed and my Connects be added?

Your plan will be billed every month on the same date. The day you upgrade to a Freelancer Plus plan your billing cycle date is reset. Your Connects will refresh monthly according to this new billing cycle.

How many Connects can I roll over each month?

A freelancer can roll over up to 200 unused Connects each month.

Do Connects ever expire?

Connects expire one year from the date of issue. However, you can only roll over 200 Connects per billing cycle (agencies can roll over as many as 400).

What's the difference between Freelancer Basic and Freelancer Plus?

The Freelancer Basic plan is your default free plan. The Freelancer Plus plan includes a larger monthly allotment of Connects, membership perks, and visibility into competitor bids.
