How to invite freelancers to the agency?

Hello,

How to invite freelancers to the agency? If I don't know their Email Addresses or usernames.

Also I can't understand how to get their User ID for this invitation. Will this solve my problem?

Thank you an advance.

Hi Volodymyr,

 

You need to connect with freelancers outside the platform and once they agree to join your agency and provide their email address (not username), you can use it to invite them to join your agency on Upwork. You can find more information and instructions here.

Thank you!

What do you mean by 'outside the platform'? Please specify. Can I invite any existing freelancer at upwork to join my team if I like his/her profile. How to contact with them or send them message. If I click on contact button then it goes to my homepage. Really confusing system!

Syed, you can invite any existing freelancer at upwork but you have invite them using their email addresses, that you won't get on the platform. And freelancers can't contact each other on platform, so you have to contact them outside the platform, get their email addresses and invite them.

Hi Yeasir,

Do I can invite the freelancer who not registered yet or have a not verified account on Upwork? 

Hi. Same question with Vitaliy. Can we invite team members who are yet to create their upwork account/ or those whose profiles were not yet accepted by upwork?

Hi Carlyn Ann,

 

You should be able to invite someone to join your agency by following the steps below: 

  1. Go to your Accounts menu (โˆจ) > Settings > Members & Permissions.
  2. Select Invite a New User and fill in the form, including choosing roles and permissions.
  3. Select Invite User. The person will receive a notification to join your team and can accept or decline your invitation.

Hi Syed,

 

As an agency owner, you can add members to your team and manage bidding, interviews and payment processes, while your agency contractors focus on completing the work for the clients. 

 

Please check this help article for more information on how to add team members to your agency.

 

Let us know if you need any further assistance.

 

Thank you.

As you are supposed to know them you can just ask them? The idea isn't to just hit up random strangers you see on Upwork, the idea is to add your real life team members.

Hi,

 

Can I add a freelancer in my Upwork Agency without an Upwork profile yet?

Hi Anna,

 

All agency members must have an Upwork profile before you invite them to join your agency.

Hi Nikola,

 

I tried to add members to my Agency, but it is not available on my page. It says that I should upgrade to the Plus membership.

Can you help me with this, please?

 

Thanks 

Hi Mahmoud,

 

That is correct. You must upgrade to an Agency Plus membership to add team members to your agency. Please don't hesitate to check this help article to learn more about the benefits and procedures when upgrading your agency.
