I'm glad you found the information you were looking for here. Were you able to merge your Elance account with the Upwork account you created? Let us know if you need any further assistance.
I get "your link has expired" message when clicking on the button in the invitation email. Of course it is too late for that. But I could access my Elance account and found a widget saying "The last day to copy your account is September 30th. Don't lose your reputation. Move your account today. Get started" .
Ok, I did. And then clicked on the "allow" button to let Upwork access my Elance account. Then nothing happened.
I watched the guide for transfer, and made an account on upwork, not from a link related to Elance as shown in the guide, but from sign up process from upwork site. Both accounts have now same email registered. I can not find an option for merging or something similar.
What can I still do to merge the accounts or to import the Elance account to upwork (and close the new upwork account that I just registered, if necessary)?
Yes, I can see the widget, that's where I found it too. The widget works and redirects me and everything goes until I reach the page where Upwork asks for the permission to access my Elance profile.
There, it appears the "Allow" button doesn't redirect when onclick event occurs.
I click on the button, it becomes inactive and nothing happens further.
