repeated jobs in ODESK and ELANCE

People on Elance can bring their profile over here but we can't bring our profiles over there. It's too bad because my profile here is lightyears ahead of my profile on Elance.

 

I think the company wants to focus on oDesk and once things seem to be running smoothly,  shut everything down and open a new site.

Hi Jennifer,

 

David is correct. Because we're focusing innovation here, we're not building a similar bridge for duplicating your oDesk profile on Elance. Also, oDesk Team is considering improvements to the application process such as adding a way to ask clarification questions about the job before applying and using connects.

Dear Valeria,

 

Please provide an option for freelancer to choose whether they want to merge thier oDesk profile with Elance profle. I don't want to merge my oDesk profile with Elance one. I prefer to have them separate on both sites.

 

Regarding the connects system, please add an extra memebership plan where we can buy extra connects at cheap price (100 connects for $10 or $15) or atleast let us retain connects when the client are non-responsive. I want to see some tweaks done to this present connect system to suit us better.

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi Mg Arfath,

 

Thank you for your feedback about the Membership plans. We plan to improve and introduce more benefits to the paid plans.

 

Also, you are certainly welcome to keep your Elance and oDesk profiles separate if you do not wish to merge them.

Thank you very much for the reply Valeria,

 

I'm really looking forward to improvements to the paid plans, especially for more connects. 

 

As freelancer from India I need CC (credit card) to buy memebership using paypal, I want you to add skrill as payment option. Most of the freelancers here don't have CC or paypal account so Skrill will be beneficial.

 

Thanks

Hi Valeria,

 

Thanks for your replies. Sorry if this has been explained before, but I'm a little confused - if the two platforms/sites will be merged eventually, then won't we HAVE to merge our profiles (if we currently have one on each site)? Do you have an estimated time frame for when the merge will happen?

 

Thanks

Hi Isabelle Anne,

 

We do not have an exact date for the transition yet but it will take up to two years. We will keep everyone posted on the progress and share more details soon.

Hi Sasha,

 

You surely can sign up create a new account on Elance and use similar username and email address as you do on oDesk. oDesk and Elance remain separate platforms.
