Can my husband and I use the same account to do work?

He wants to do some side projects on UpWork, but doesn't necessarily want his own account. I already have an account with UpWork, and would like to let him use my account. The money we both earn would end up going to the same bank account anyways so we thought that might make things easier.

You can't do that. The client must know who they are working with.

You were wise to ask. Upwork will terminate freelancers accounts permanently if it catches users sharing an account.

**Edited for community guidelines**

 

Actually I worked with this guy and completed the first job on Upwork successfully using his account.

 

But now he ran away and I want to get back my money from his account.

 

Is it possible?

How did you think this would be acceptable?

Then how can I get paid for my work.

 

He promised to pay me but ran away with my money.

 

At least, that money should be returned to the client or he should be punished.

You can't. You aren't supposed to be here, you fraudulently used someone else's account, which is a violation of the terms of service and will see you removed from the platform (probably not for the first time)

Funny how you seem to be just fine with lying and cheating when it's you who is doing it, but get all morally outraged when your partner in crime cheats on you.

Oh you will both be kicked off the site, don't worry about it.

Hi Matsuda,

 

I would like to confirm that Upwork users are not allowed to share their accounts with other users as it is a violation of the Upwork Terms of Service. Only the registered user is allowed to access and use their account.

 

I have escalated this to the correct team and one of our agents will further advise you via support ticket.

 

Thank you!
