Thanks, Ryan. I'm not sure that article addresses my question. The name on my ID is different from the name I want to use when working with clients. When I then verify using my ID, won't it change my name to the one on my ID?
For example, if the name on my ID is "David Joseph," can I use "D.J." on the site in my profile?
Sorry for the confusion. No, your name won't be changed to what's on your ID. As stated in the article I have posted in my reply, you must use your real, verifiable name according to Upwork's Terms of Service. "DJ" are the initials of your first name which is a verifiable one. If you will add your bank account as your payment method, this may take 48 hours for us to approve. Thank you.
