Account name change...

I am trying to sign up for an account and am having issues with the name. I'm happy to change it to my real name. Sorry I didn't follow your guidelines with the CAPS, but if you let me change it again I'll use my name. The current name is the business I'll be working for while using Upwork. I didn't know it was against policy to use a company name.

Hi there!

Are you able to access your account Settings page? You should be able to update your name there by going to your Contact Info, and editing your name.

After you register with your real name, you can still add a company name.

And when you post jobs - freelancers will see the company name.


Actually --- wait... you're applying for a freelancer account. Alright. I'm thinking about a client account.
