Hi Liza,

 

If giving the other person admin permissions isn't enough, you need to contact support and request for the ownership of the agency to be transferred. The team will provide more information about the process.

i am also wanted to transfer ownership to someone else, how i can do that, and
I have a client who wishes to hire me directly on my separate talent profile, even though we already have an active contract on my agency profile. I am unsure of how to proceed in this situation and would appreciate your guidance.

Hi,

 

i do have the same issue here. According to your TOS related to account information, i do realize that it seems my account is violating your TOS.

 

However, since i already created an agency account, i want to transfer my agency ownership to members of the team and delete this account after.

 

Can you guys help me out, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Altermyth,

 

Our Customer Support team can assist you with transferring the ownership of your agency to another freelancer but you'll need to complete the required procedure for your account first.

 I would read this thread, but you can't just take an agency. Think about that and ask yourself if that would be a good thing to allow. 

Mam,Can its possible for you create a ticket ,So that we will short out this issue..4 full family members depends on us.And we 100 % ( Not 99 % ) depends on upwork.And atpresent we have no option.

No, but you can. They aren't going to give you an agency just because you want it. You can all leave the current one and make your own, but the owner owns it and they won't give it to someone else without the owner's permission. lol Think about the 45 different ways that would be wrong.

Please follow the steps shared by Valeria above which I will also share here:

Hello !

Is it possible to have 2 agency owners, or only 1 person allowed?

@Yuri K

There is a parallel thread about two agency owners. We are still waiting for a solution.
