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.
Please know that the team is aware of the issue, and is working to resolve it. In the meantime, I have shared your account information with the Customer Support Team so that they can get in touch with you with more information about the issue.
When I apply for some job listings, I get the following message:
My location is set to the United States in my profile location. How can I fix this issue?
I keep receiving the error message
you do not meet all the client's prreferred qualifications
You may still submit a proposal, but the client will see that the proposal does not meet the following criteria:
Location: United States
However, I am located in the US and my ID a long with my bank statement has already been verified. I know it's been verified because I started a ticket specifically to have it verified.
When I go to Settings > Contact Info > Location
My address is correct and I'm located in the US.
My ticket ID for the verification of my address was
and it's been resolved. However, I'm still seeing this error message as if I wasn't located in the U.S.
Help would be appreciated. Thank You!
I have submitted proposals to a few jobs and have gotten the notice at the top that I don't meet the location requirement, "United States."
My address (and time zone) information in my location setting is my correct address which is in the US.
Why is this happening?
Also, what happened to chat support?
I am very clearly located in the United States (South Bay Area in California). However, when I am preparing a proposal it says that I do not meet the location criteria for the job (the location being the United States).
I have tried re-entering my address and I double checked my time zone but it still says that I am not located in the United States! Help please!
