What happened to Upwork Support?

I was hoping to contact Upwork support with a question about a specific job because nothing in the generic answer bank addresses this particular issue. (It's a question about a certain job, not a general question about how things work.) I went to support.upwork.com only to find that the chat icon has disappeared, and so has the support phone number. Has this information just moved around, or is live support no longer available?

 

I really hope that's not the case. One would think that doubled fees would result in more/better services, not fewer/less responsive services. Removing live support makes things far more inefficient for freelancers...

That ship has sailed.

 

Too many people abused the privilege.

 

Upwork had to restrict access further.

 Preston, why are giving false information to Signe who has a long job history and is top rated? Signe, please scroll down the Upwork Help Center Page and at the bottom you will find "Get help from Upwork". After a long-winding process with several steps you will find different options for getting in touch with customer service. It has become a bit more difficult.

Hi Signe,

 

I can confirm you have access to all support options because you are a Top Rated freelancer. Click "Get Help from Upwork," select appropriate categories and click next. If articles you see don't answer your questions, click "No" and then click "Submit Request."

You'll see support options.

Thanks, everyone! I did click the "Get Help from Upwork" button, but after a few more clicks it appeared to be more automated/generic stuff and not access to an actual human being. I guess I didn't click far enough. I'll try again. Smiley Happy

 I had the same problem before and other freelancers as well. Please look here:

I hope this helps. Good luck!
