I have choosen US as I was looking for US companies, but on Create Profile page I am asked for my addres and phone confirmation which confused me and not allowing me to change my country. Please help me. I am from UK. Thanks.
I'm sure if you raise a ticket with Upwork, they will help you straighten things out.
I'm based in the UK, and most of my clients are in the States, so don't worry about being based in the UK. That's the whole point of freelancing, the world is your clientbase. But you need to be honest and say you are based in the UK. Hopefully, Upwork will help you out with this. As it stands, your profile looks bad as you say you are based in the UK and willing to move to the States but your location says States.
You need to give your accurate information and place you live/work and you can't just say I am going to move there and put US in instead of the UK. You can still bid on US jobs or any others, but for non-US freelancers like ourselves there are some jobs we can't see from the US unfortunately.
Ultimately you lied. Let's not put too fine a point on it.
But rest assured, you're not the only one who lies about their location and then finds themselves caught in the lie.
>> Ultimately you lied. Let's not put too fine a point on it.
That's your point. Not mine.
My point is to be able to change my country. Could you or somebody else please help me with that.
Thank you very much Joanne.
It would be nice if we put some info next to that first location field with explanation that the location is user's current location he/she lives and that user still will be able to search clients from other countries. It will decrease the number of posts like that raised on the forum.
