Now, i am relizing that when i am trying to bid on projects on the behalf of my account ( personal account ) it showing no one eles bid on this project 0 proposal. I am very stuck in all that becuase i am a plus member and i can't get the details of other freelancer bid. 

 

Moving ahead, i also try to close my company account some time ago, but is message me that you should close the open propsal on the behalf of this company. how should i close that ?

Dharmveer, I am pretty sure you are trying to do something that 99% of us here in the Forum have never done.

 

I think you are using the Upwork interface incorrectly.

 

It may take some time for us to understand what you are talking about.

 

Let me take a guess. Tell me if I am right or wrong:

 

You created a company/agency on Upwork.

You are the only member of the company/agency.

You sent proposals to two job postings.

Your goal is to work on job projects for clients and earn money.

 

 

(is this accurate?)

Okay... I think you already know that you need to bid on jobs as an individual contractor, because you don't want to run an agency.

The reason why you can't close your agency at the moment is most likely because you have those active proposals. Withdraw them, then click on "close company" while logged into the agency part of your account.

 

Make sure you are logged into the ageny NOT your individual account as you don't want to wipe out the whole account, just the agency.

 

If it won't let you, make sure you have withdrawn all applications and ended any active candidacies under the agency, and raise a support ticket asking them to please close the agency on your behalf.

 

If you created yourself as an exclusive agency freelancer under the ageny you should be able to see the relevant details when logged into the agency side of things (rather than from your freelancer side of things,) but to see the bid range for jobs you applied for on behalf of your agency you would have to have bought Agency Plus membership - your individual Plus Plan does not let you see the bid range of agency bids.

 

I am at bit of a loss as to why you created an agencyin the first place ... Somehow just because the option was there doesn't quite explain it.

 

Just because a bridge "is there" doesn't necessarily mean you necessarily have to jump off it....

Thanks Arthur C. Clarke,

 

For your valuable reply. I sure withdraw those 2 bids and close the agency. I really don't know that why i open that. However, i have a question in my mind and that is, Owing to all this, is my freelancer profile will affected or can i open my agency in near future ?

 

Upwork should hide that create company link and if not then there should be have an informational link. I am worked very hard for running my profile and i spend a lot of nights to get my clients and i dont want to do anything with my profile.

 

thanks

Hi Dharmveer,

 

Relax. Closing your agency profile will have no effect on your freelancer profile, negtive or positive.

 

Yes you will be able tocreate an agency in the future.

 

There seem to be a couple of not so funny bugs about at the moment, so don't panic every time something doesn't look how you expect it to look, OK?

 

Regards,

 

Petra
