Re: How to block a client?

Can anyone tell me how to block a client please?

 

I have an idiot trying to get me to respond to his job outside of upwork and refusing to discuss what the payment would be, etc.

 

I've reported it, but in the meantime, how to block such fools to avoid wasting any more of my time?

I don't know about you, but I would just ignore any other new messages from that client...

Ignoring is fine on other platforms, but here when I receive a notification I naturally open up messages promptly to see what my clients want. Blocking was the best option.

Another wayto block a client is to withdraw the proposal.   You will be prompted to select a reason for withdrawing.  Underneath that section  is a check box: 'Block this client from sending me any future invitations'

Hi Joemar,

 

Could you please clarify if you would like to block the client from sending messages to you or receiving invitations for an interview? Thank you.

Hi Noor-UI-Anam,

 

You can block your client by going to the Upwork Messenger. Click on the client's name at the top, and it will display a drop-down menu, where the option to block is available. Thanks.

Hi Mennatullah,

 

I'd just like to clarify if you are referring to blocking the client from seeing your proposal or do you mean to block other freelancers from seeing your proposal? Please know that only clients can see the proposal you submit to them, and it is not available to other freelancers.
