Greetings! everyone I have heard that you need to be verified on video by upwork's team before actively working as a freelancer. But how?

How to apply for that ? or They will randomly select me to verify?

Hi Muhammad,

 

It seems like you are referring to the ID-verified badge. If you are required, you’ll be notified upon log in to complete the verification process by uploading a non-expired government-issued photo ID and meeting with us for visual verification. After we’ve confirmed your identity, the new badge will be displayed on your profile.

Hi, I have a question. If I don't do my identity verification in next 7 days and my account goes on hold, can I idenfity it anytime after that or I can do it only in next 7 days?

Thanks.

Hi Nedim,

 

If you are not able to verify your account on the deadline specified, your account will be placed on hold. The hold will not affect any active contracts you have. You can still work, but you will need to complete the verification process before getting paid or applying for new work.

I have open upwork on 14th April 2021. It's been three days I haven't received mail regarding verfication.
Is this initial veification? and when will I receive verification badge? Can I start working on upwork now?
Waiting for positive response Smiley Happy

Hi Jyoti,

 

I can confirm that you should be able to start working and submitting proposals. I can also see that you've already added a payment method to your account so you can withdraw your earnings whenever they become available, either by setting an Automatic Payment Schedule or by going to Settings> Get Paid and clicking on the "Get Paid Now" button. 

 

Regarding the verification, I checked and it doesn't look like you are required to complete it at the moment. The team will let you know if there is a need for any verification in the future.

 

Thank you.
