Hi Joanne - Thank you for the reply! I understand the payment verification information is located at the bottom of each job but my question is, how can I help a client become payment verified if they are posting a job I want to bid on but will not due to them not being PV'd?
I thought there was a link we could send them and recommend they initiate the process of becoming verified in order to attract more freelancers who will only bid on PV jobs.
Hi Christine - Yes, I see your point. Let me rephrase: My thought was to include the link (if there is one) as a PS to the Cover Letter (Proposal). This way, if the client is new and/or has not yet realized it is recommended they become PV, they would have a link to click on to take them to that part of the process they must have missed when establishing their account. I also understand that if a client is new to the system, their PV may still be in process while they are concurrently posting jobs.
It's not a deal-breaker for me, I simply would like to assist a genuine client (as opposed to a scammer) who may have missed a step, especially if they have posted a job I'd like to follow through on.
