Was hoping for some guidance since I'm relatively new to upwork. So I've been going back and forth with a client about producing a product advertisement video for them. Nothing about it has been suspicious. However, they've now asked me to give them my home address so they can send me their product, free of charge, so I may start the video. Obviously this is a logical part of the project cycle and isn't necessarily suspicious but I feel strange giving anyone online my address.
Just wondering what I should do, or if there's some way around this.
There is no rule against providing a client with your address.
If you REALLY don't want to give them your address, then give them a P.O. Box.
But if this is a client that is paying you to make a video about their physical product, then they need to send you the product.
I'm not sure why you are so worried about this.
They're not going to come to your house. They probably don't live anywhere near you.
