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.

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 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.
