Hi UpworkTeam, I'm new here and want to try this very famous platform. I know that good reputation and reviews are very important here and it's very difficult to get the very 1st one.
(I do En-Ru translations + some extra services)
My question is: Please tell me, can I add to my portfolio section my Fiverr's profile link(s)? People will see my perfect reputation there and 5star positive reviews. I think it can help me to start here and to get the very first work.
Thank you very much in advance. Have a nice time.

Cheers. OK no link, but maybe I can tell there that I have good Fiverr's reputation? (screenshots etc.)

You can't add external contact information to your Upwork profile and that's why links to your Fiver profile isn't allowed.

To be honest any mention of that other platform, which has a dreadful reputation among most Upwork clients and freelancers, is likely to harm your career here more than it will help it.
You'll likely be seen as a low skill, low price provider.
Just don't do it.
I would also strongly suggest you remove all references to that site from your overview

Cheers, There are absolutely different sellers, from low to very high price level. Like everywhere. And prices are different also. I got there a few big orders up to $115 per order (I'm new and very low level seller there(1)
But, may be screenshots with hidden name ?
Also I can hide Fiverr's logo maybe 🙂

My personal, unofficial recommendation to you would be for you to post impressive portfolio items that you yourself created in your Upwork portfolio.
Whether or not those portfolio items were created for Fiverr clients or Upwork clients or elsewhere. (As long as you have permission to use them in your portfolio.)
And to not reference your Fiverr reputation or activities.
Upwork clients do not come to Upwork in order to hire Fiverr freelancers. They come here to hire Upwork freelancers.

Keep in mind that YOU know things about Fiverr that Upwork clients DON'T KNOW.
Your profile page on Upwork.com is an opportunity for you to market yourself to Upwork clients.
So it doesn't matter what "the truth" about Fiverr really is. It matters what Upwork clients think.

Cheers Preston, I understand. You all are right.
As I understood it's not also allowed to give this type of information in personal messages (I mean discussing work details etc.)

I have added link in proposal and than I realized I might did wrong then I searched about this that sending link is prohibited. But I had already did that but just once. Now what will happen or what I need to do?
