Hi Saima,


I checked your profile and saw that you were able to change your name and photo. Your chosen payment method's account name should match your Upwork account name. Otherwise, you will be unable to withdraw the money to your account. You  may check these other payment method options to see which is the right fit for your setup. Let me know if there's anything else.

Hi Sangeetha,


You can change your display name on your Profile but you can't change your username.

I don't see a name change request on your account. Could you please go to Settings> Contact Info and click Edit next to "Account" to request the change?

I used my work name as my profile name but now I want to change it to my real name which is “Muhammad Ali” to match my banking details and to verify my identity.
I requested a name change but recently I got an email that I can’t change my name.
Please let me know what to do as I want to verify my details. I was not familiar with Upwork’s Policy so I used my business name there but now I have to change it in order to verify myself.
