I`m sorry about the confusion. Could you please try the same steps from your end and let me know if you`re still experiencing the same problem? Thank you.
I have been trying to create a direct contract for days now, at first in went, but after the first contract was completed and i tried creating another, it keeps telling me "We are sorry! We are experiencing a technical problem and cannot process your request right now. Please try again in a minute", very frustrating.
PLEASE HELP! ... it has been on for days now.
Hi Temitope, Oyeyemi, Samuel, Innocent and Achala,
Thanks for your questions. Currently, Direct Contracts are only available to freelancers and their clients in certain countries. If you attempt to sign up and you or your client are not eligible due to the country you live in, you’ll see this message: “We’re sorry to inform you that Direct Contracts are currently not available in your country." Note that the message has been recently updated. We hope to expand Direct Contracts to more countries in the future.
