They don't show on the other side? This is the text of the message:
"You may still submit a proposal, but the client will see that the proposal does not meet the following criteria: Location: United States"
Hello. I was in the process of applying for a job on Upwork as a freelancer and I'm getting a message that says that the prospective client has requested a freelancer living in the US and I don't meet the criterium. Did Minnesota withdraw from the union and I'm unaware of it? (sarcasm) Can anyone tell me how to correct this problem. I've been on Upwork for over 5 years and never had this problem before.
Thanks in advance for your help.
This is an ongoing problem with a lengthy thread. I cannot believe UW has not been able to solve this as I would consider it a serious problem that would impact the ability of a person to be found and seen.
Separately, I wonder how you have been able to work on this platform without a profile photo.
Whenever I apply for jobs that are U.S.-only, it says that the poster will see that I don't meet the U.S.-only requirement. I live in New York, am a U.S. resident, and have verified my phone number. I was never asked to submit a photo of my ID for verification when I joined UpWork a couple years ago, and I can't find anywhere that will let me submit my ID now. What do I do?
I have been verfifed as in the United States, yet every now and then, I want to bid on a job and get the message that says:
"critera not met - not in the United States."
What's up with that?
I have merged your post to this masterthread. Please know that this is a known issue, and a member of the Customer Support Team will reach out to you to update you with more information about the issue.
As Valeria has noted above,hat this error only shows on the freelancer end and doesn't affect how the proposal looks on the client's end.
