How can I apply for work using a Trading As name

How can I apply for work using a Trading As name being self employ or must I use my real name. My web presence and accomplishments aren't tied to my real name but rather my online ID or Trading as name.

Hello Charita,

 

Your Upwork Freelancer account must include your real and verifiable name. You can also use your nickname, pseudonym or pen name on your Upwork account however, your invoices and contract will still reflect your verified name. You can use your Brand or Company name on your agency account. Learn more about using your Verified name on Upwork here.

 

Thank you.

I created an agency account, but when I apply for jobs. It doesn't show the company name it shows my personal name.

Yes, this is how it is supposed to work. There is absolutely no way you can freelance on Upwork under a false name.
