Hi! As I can see you say that you don't meet the criterium for that client. Look what the client is looking for of the skills and see whether you fit into that description or not.

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?

Hi Eric, 


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.

Hi,

I'm a US (California) based consultant. I've verified my address with Upwork, but my proposals are being flagged as Not in the U.S. Can someone help?

When I apply for some job listings, I get the following message:

 

You do not meet all the client's preferred qualifications

You may still submit a proposal, but the client will see that the proposal does not meet the following criteria:

  • Location: United States


My location is set to the United States in my profile location.  How can I fix this issue?
