Hi, I think I found a solution. Someone said I could just easily put my official name, like full name or my graphics brand name. So I just put my full name. You can put yours too

Try payoneer ( though you can only register of you have your e.passport) and have better experience. The rate is high and faster than local transfer.
Last week. Local transfer was 369 naira with charges of 0.99usd while from payoneer was 382 naira with charges of 2usd

Your account is new pls be calm you will soon get job.
At the start of covid 19 there are fewer jobs compared to pre covid 19 and the fact that people are at home, so those freelancer who work and use freelance as second job now have full time to stay online all the time and also, every one is seeking freelancing job as the option for post covid 19 so for now the competition is so high and note that , this is not peculiar to only upwork.
Stay online always
1.Only bid job with low rate possibly less than 100usd.
2. Only bid for job posted within last 15-30 mins
3. Only bid for job with proposal less than 5 sent already.
4. Only bid for job not requiring more than 2 connect.
5 Your aim now is to focus on building your profile not getting money to that extent, once your profile rank be rest assured that you will definitely be good.

Hello Kingsley,

I was wondering if you found a way around this.

I am considering trying the wire transfer to GTB domiciliary.

Does GT charge any landing fees?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Oreofe, I'm new to upwork, I just joined today. I'm trying to wrap my head around a lot of things. Like why does the page keep refreshing when I click on "Submit a proposal"? Was my profile rejected? I basically need some putting through. Could you help?
