I'm new to upwork and I am having trouble hiring a freelancer. Every time I follow the steps to "hire freelancer" and try to set up a contract and send it to the freelancer, Up work tells me an error has occrred and to try again later. I have altered the wording of the job description to make it clearer. Not sure what to do. Would love any suggestions.
