Re: Locked private Profile

Hello,

I'm new here...

 

So, profile will be set to private if I don't earn within my first 30 days here? Is that correct?

 

Is that intended to be motivation for me to upgrade to a paid membership?

 

This seems like a freelancer-unfriendly policy. Unless I'm misunderstaning something.

Hi Gayle,

 

Yes that is correct, if a freelancer does not earn in 30 days their profile visibility will be changed to private. This means that they will be hidden from search results only but they can still apply on jobs. Clients who have received a proposal from them will still be able to view their profile.
Additionally, we do have a free option to change your profile visibility by asking us here or contacting our customer support. Thank you.

That seems reasonable.

hI Jonathan,

 

I’ve reset your profile visibility back to public. Just so that you are aware, freelancers will not appear in search results but clients to who you have submitted a proposal will still be able to view your profile and skills. You can check out more info about this here. Thank you.

Hi Goran,

 

Is there also a possibility that my profile will be back to public for FREE?

I am now back on track since I had a problem on my laptop so I wasn't able to work for the last few months. But now I'm trying back again, hope you can help. Thanks.

 

Cheers,

Gio

Hi Giovanni,

 

I changed your visibility back to public, keep in mind that if you do not earn in the next 30 days your visibility will be switched back to private. Thank you.

Hi Goran,

I'm not active on Upwork and you have rightfully set my profile to Private.

A potential client is discussing a project and wants to view it.

 

What should I do?

Thanks.
