A client wants to hire me as his freelancer, but odesk keep saying "offer creation failed" every time he clicks to hire me, are there any possibilities why this happened?

 

He made an offer below my request, and i already said okay, I also adjust the payment from my  side but this keep happening.

 

Any suggestions?

Dear Intan,

 

Welcome to oDesk 🙂

 

I think the problem that the client cannot hire you is that the payment method he added on oDesk is not verifed yet. You may send this help article to your client which is posted on oDesk about setting a verified payment method. (He needs to login to see the article).

If he still faces problem, I think you would ask him to contact oDesk CSS in order to resolve the issue.

 

Hope it helps and wish you all the best 🙂

 

Thanks,

Arif

Dear Arif,

 

thank you  for the welcoming and the reply, but this client already a verified client. He tried to hire me a couple of times but keep failed. Is there any possibilities again beside that?

How much is he planning on paying you? 

 

If it's under $3.00 an hour then he won't be able to hire you even if you say it's okay. oDesk now has a minimum wage that clients have to use when hiring.

Hi David, it's a fixed price of 25$ USD. Surely there is no problem with that?

Please ask your client whether his payment method has sufficient funds. I think that error message occurs when milestone can't be charged to it.

Oh and if you have a current contract with the same client (and if under the same team), he won't be able to click on hire or send an offer too. 

 

Btw, you are charging wayyyy too low for a doctor. $3.16 per hour? Try to change it to at least $3.33/hr and see if that works too but really, why are you doing data entry and working for $1 per project? I saw your jobs history.

 

Anyway, your client should just contact support. Support/oDesk cannot disclose details to you or to us here. They can fix this directly with your client.

Dianne,yeah, thanks for the note, because it's my first time in here, and I don't know how much to put it there.  I'll take your advice and make it higher. lol. Smiley LOL

 

I'm just wasting my time doing the data entry, cost me 15 minutes, and I don't have anything to do, so that's why.
