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.
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.
