Hello Jennifer! Could you please help me, I'm trying to change the country at registration but there's only US available. And the field is disabled.

No problem. I'm not sure about that, oDesk seems to be changing a lot on the site.


I have been a member for over two years and I was asked to verify my phone number by text yesterday, when I've never been asked to do that in the last two years.


Because there has been a lot of fraud recently, I think they are going through extra security measures, so I would just call and see what a rep says. You should be able to get in touch with someone over the phone, immediately.

Hi everyone!


I've changed my country/residence about 15 months ago and didn't have a problem. I simply contacted support and they asked me to send proof. I'm not sure if I remember it right but I think I sent my passport photo and proof of billing address. Sometimes they would ask you to verify your phone instead (happened to a friend). It's really a fast process. Mine took only a matter of minutes Smiley Happy

Good day! 


     I am new in Odesk and I suddenly have to go back to the Philippines. When I created my account in Odesk, I am still in Philadelphia. How will I contact support and change my location? Please help me and thank you very much!

Just tell people you live in "Philly".


That works for both places. Problem solved.

Hi Alex Lane,


You can edit your location in your User Settings. You may need to complete an ID verification once you send the request to change your location. oDesk Team will inform you about further steps.
