In order to accept an interview for only UK based freelancers they want me to verify where I live by uploading a British Passport or UK driving licence.
How do we solve this problem if I am a European living in the UK and do not drive? That is my case.
I need help on this.
I need to verify my location as UK but I am only given the options to upload a british passport or UK driving license. I am a resident in the UK, and have been for the past 8 years, but do not have a driving license or british passport, I have a settlement status with indefinite leave to remain. How can I confirm this? Thanks
Upwork just "placed on hold" my account!
And so I can no longer apply for jobs or accept job offers.
This is because Upwork asked me - again! - to upload a copy of my passport.
My name on my passport shows as Jacques, but I use Jac in my Upwork profile.
But my use of Jac was approved by Upwork 6 months ago!
It was approved because I'm allowed to use Jac, consdiering that Jac is short for Jacques and that everyone knows me as Jac.
So why the request for my (British) passport again?
And why did Upwork block my account?
Dear Upwork. I'm in the middle of applying for 2 decent jobs and blocking my account due to your internal admin errors does nothing to improve my chances of supporting myself - and my family - as a freelancer.
Please immediately unblock my Upwork account!
The jobs & clients won't wait for me 24 hours... or whatever is you current reply time.
Thank you for you reply, but I'm afraid you're not correct.
Upwork approved my use of Jac several months ago as per my earlier post.
Regarding "how did you get paid?". Upwork pays to my full first name (Jacques) and allows me to use Jac on my Upwork profile. Common practice for many freelancers, by the way.
