The freelancer that I hired cannot accept the contract as there is a pop up message saying that my account is suspended. Please reactivate my account so that I can proceed with the contract. The money is in escrow.

There was a message that came up about me including my website for content for my freelancer (a website created through Upwork). 


Please reactify immediately.

  • Hello there

I recently used the Upwork platform, and I did not bypass any politics from the site, but I found that my account was suspended, although I could not get any job yet, and I did not violate the platform's rules

Hello...today is the first day I have had time to be super active on the platform after signing up a few weeks ago. I went to submit a proposal for a job that required 6 connects, I received the error and applied again. Now I see that in my "connect proposals page" I was submitted twice with a deduction of -12 connects for the -6 connect proprosal (same job). Please add back +6 connects to my total. The job is called "marketing strategist for launching a new brand". Appreciate it 💓


Hi Tonette,


I'm sorry for any confusion that may have caused you. I can see that the required Connects to apply for the job you mentioned is 12.

Hello, I have a similar problem. My accounts for payment are already verified and when the customer wants to make a proposal it appears that they are not verified.
I can't propose a contract myself or use the "direct contract" function.
Please help me!
