What if I don't want to transfer my Elance over to Upwork? I created an Upwork account before the annoucement to merge. I'd like all my docs from and between providers and want the provider info transfered to the new platform since I gave my service provider good marks.

It seems you haven't read the news, "Elance is going to ShutDown step by step" till next year. So if you don't you will not get any projects as Elance is encouraging their clients to move to upwork. Client signup may be not possible within few weeks. I don't like this personally, but we have to move. Smiley Sad(

Hi David,

 

You do not have to merge your Elance account with your existing Upwork account. However, we encourage you to begin all new contracts on Upwork and move existing contracts to Upwork when possible. Additionally, once you merge or copy your Elance to Upwork you will be able to see a list of the freelancers who you had (or have) contracts with on Elance.

 

Thank you.
