Hello Friends,

I have applied for a database development job on 22 June 2015. I’ve noticed that the client has posted 14 jobs, hired 7 and paid $5,942, but his payment method is not yet verified. He has 0 feedback.

I can't get it how it works. I’m curious to know.

It's posibly a temporary glitch - if, for example, the card he uses is about it expire. It''s not a totla red flag - just be sure it's verified agan before you start any work.

Request the client to make the payment method verifed before head on. Sometimes clients do that because no one could log hours in the work diary.

I've noticed something similar with a job post that I was considering applying to. Is it possible that clients with profiles similar to this (that show their payment isn't verified but they've spent $xyz on the site), that this is an indication that they were clients on Elance that have made the transition and merged their profiles? That was the only conclusion I could come up with for this that actually made any sense to me lol.

I have seen many clients that have "payment method not verified" but have hired in past. It doesn't look a temprory glich but the possible explanation is that his card has expired.
