I want to be a client, but my account wants me to set up a freelancer profile.


So many months ago I was considering joining as a freelancer, but at the time I didn't know what details to answer in the profile so I didn't finalise as I didn't want to just populate it with random values. Now, I want to instead look to be a client to get some expertise on a project that I know nothing about but there is no way to proceed without completing the freelancer profile. I cannot use my email address which I want to use to reregister as a client and I have no way of changing to client with my current account status. 


ANy tips here anyone?


thank you.

Hi Jonathan,


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.
