When will My Bids be Replenished?

Bidding is a big part of a freelancer's life on Freelancer.com. There are millions of projects on the site, and you need to bid on them to get the jobs. This makes it easy to run out of bids fairly quickly. When you find that your bid count is down to zero, don't worry. Your bids will be returned to you periodically.

As you use your bids, you will be returned one bid at a set interval according to your membership plan.

  • Free members earn a total of 8 bids in a span of 1 month at a set interval of 1 bid every 90 hrs.
  • Intro members earn a total of 15 bids in a span of 1 monthat a set interval of 1 bid every 50 hrs.
  • Basic members earn a total of 50 bids in a span of 1 month at a set interval of 1 bid every 14.5 hrs.
  • Plus members earn a total of 100 bids in a span of 1 month at a set interval of 1 bid every 7.5 hrs.
  • Professional members earn a total of 300 bids in a span of 1 month at a set interval of 1 bid every 2.5 hrs.
  • Premier members earn a total of 1500 bids in a span of 1 month at a set interval of 1 bid every 30 mins.

Note that you will get one (1) additional bid when the following occurs:

  • A project you bid on is unawarded and closed or deleted within the 7-day bidding period or expires without the employer awarding it within 30 days.

  • If you are on a paid membership, you will receive 1 bid for every review you have. This applies to a maximum of 50 reviews.

  • If you are on a paid membership, you will get additional bids based on your My Rewards level.

You don't have to count down the hours waiting for your bids to be replenished. To view your remaining bids and the time left until you get your next bid back, go to your Dashboard and look at its lower right sidebar.
