Hey guys, i am trying invite a freelancer and it keeps giving me the error mentioned above. I have attached a screenshot as well. This has happend over last few days so I am sure its not related to some system issue.

I am having the same issue and Upwork has not done squat to fix it. It has been about 10 days I have not been able to invite people to a job.


I tried to open a new job and invite people and only the Phillippino freelancer got the invite. None of the American freelancers got invited.


I tried to open a new job and tried to invite more people and this time no one got through.


A rep from upwork told me that it was good I found this issue because others are having the same issue too. And that will help escalate the issue. Hello? I can't hire people for jobs. Many others are having the same issue. Isn't this enough to escalate this to a priority?


I am really sick of Upwork constantly being down and how little Upwork seems to care.
