How can I create a Client Account? I am not looking for a job in upwork.
I am trying to give work to article writers in Upwork. How can I do that?
Right now, my account is a Freelancer account. I don't have the option to post job in Upwork.
You can create a Client profile on the same account. Please click on your photo in the upper-right corner > go to Settings > scroll down and click on the "+ Create a company" link on the left side of the page > choose "Create a Client Company". After you complete all the steps, you'll be able to switch between your Freelancer and Client profiles in the account view menu (the one that appears in the upper-right corner after clicking on your photo).
Once your client profile is set up, please follow advice and instructions shared in this Help article and post your first Upwork job. Also, follow this link and visit our Hiring Headquarters to find all the information and best practice advice designed to help guide you through the hiring process on Upwork.
If you need any assistance, feel free to post your questions in the Clients forum.
I have a freelancer account and I'm willing to open a client account using the method you stated. If I do so, can I use my Upwork balance to pay my freelancers? Or will I need to link my Paypal account?
Will very much appreciate your answer.
re: "If I do so, can I use my Upwork balance to pay my freelancers?"
No. Upwork does not allow this.
re: "Or will I need to link my Paypal account?"
You do not need to link your PayPal account.
PayPal is one of two options.
You may use PayPal or you may use a credit card. (Not a debit card. Not a prepaid card.)

Hi Miguel Angel,
To create a Client account on your existing account, please go to your account settings and select My Teams tab on the left. Once you do, please select Create New Account button and you should be able to add a client account to your existing account. You'll then be able to easily switch between the two accounts under the same login and hire freelancers. Check out this help article for more information.

You already have a client account on Upwork. To select your client account, please click the account drop-down menu at the top right and choose your client account as on the pictures below.
Afterwards, please go through this Help Article and find out how to make an offer and hire a Freelancer. You can post a job, verify your payment method, review proposals you receive, send an offer and hire a freelancer to complete this work for you, and process the payment as explained here.
