I cannot find a link to upload my verification documents, and the Help ticket doesn't allow a submission... it just sends me to links that look like they aren't appropriate.   Help!  thank you.

Hi Barbara, 

Could you please share the inappropriate links or screengrabs of the pages you are getting when you try to access the page to upload your verification documents?

Hi, Avery...

I am a new user, so maybe I'm just not going into the correct place.   I was in the Help area, where the verification process is explained.  I expected a link there that would say "Ready to Verify" or something.   I haven't found a job or bid on one yet... does that have to happen before Upworks sends me to the link..?    I'm just confused and thank you so much for answering my questions.

I recently got an error saying I needed to verify my location before I could apply to a US-only job (despite having applied to other US-only jobs in the past; Upwork has my bank account information and apparently that's enough to verify?). However, I can't seem to find a way to verify! I clicked the link in the error that popped up and it just took me to my job search page. Was it a mix up showing me the error or can I just not find the verification thing anywhere?

Scott,

 

Your location has already been verified and you should be able to apply for US-only jobs.

Hi - I recently attempted to verify my location by submitting a picture of my state-issued ID. I received several error messages despite following all of the guidelines on the image (it was taken over a white surface with good lighting, no interference with other objects, etc.). I stopped receiving the error message on my latest attempt and I successfully applied for a US-based proposal. Since then, every US-based proposal requires me to verify my location once again. When I click the "Verify Location Now" button, I am taken back to the "Find Work" page and I do not have the option to re-verify my location.

Thomas, Nathan and Barbara,

 

There was an issue that caused some verified freelancers like yourselves to see the error. It has since been fixed. You are verified and should be able to apply for US-only jobs.

I'm also having a problem with this, I can not get into the actual verification, everytime I click to verify my ID it takes me back to the find work area. Is there an actual link to go to do this from, instead of just being promted, as stated on the help section?
