Can I hire another freelancer from my own freelancer account?

Hello; 

I am an active freelancer on Upwork but now I have a few personal works for which I want to hire freelancers.

Is there any way via which I can hire directly from my personal freelancer account directly without making a separate client account.

Also, can I use the balance available in my Upwork account to hire a freelancer?

Hi Anurag,

 

You need to have a client account in order to post a job and hire a freelancer for your Job. You can be a Client and a Freelancer using the same account. You'll use the same account to log in to Upwork, but the two parts of your account will be kept entirely separate. You'll be able to easily switch between the two as needed. To create a Client account on your existing account, please follow up instructions in this help article.

 

You can also check this help article for more information on how to post a job and these helpful resources to give you an idea about how to get started as a client.

No, you need a proper credit card or a card backed PayPal account. Prepaid cards or virtual cards etc will not work.

What about the balance in my Freelancer account?

Can't I use that to hire another freelancer?
