Hi Dee Ann Jo,

 

Thank you for your message and welcome to Upwork! I'm happy to report that your profile has been approved. You can check this on your end by trying to submit a proposal. If youโ€™re able to submit proposals, it means your profile was approved! 

 

Here are some resources I compiled to help you get started on Upwork; I suggest you review each of them carefully:

Hi, I submitted my profile for review but I didn't recieve email confirmation of whether or not my profile is approved. Also when I log in to my account, it shows me a notification of "Congratulations! You're now part of Upwork!" does t that mean I'm in?

Hi,

 

I'm curious even If my profile is not approved. Would I still be able to make a Direct Contract with a client of mine through the platform?

 

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if my profile is already approved.

After submitting my account I saw this banner on my page saying "Congratulations! You are no part of Upwork!" and was able to get 50 connects. Does that mean my profile is already approved? 

I did not receive an email after 48hrs. I tried to send a proposal and I was able to send one.

Hi,

I created my upwork account on 9th May. I understand that the profile review process takes around 24 hours but it has been around 4 days now and it still says that my profile is under review. Is there a way to check what's the hold up? Or anything that I can do from my side to expedite the process?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

Momina Asad

Hi Momina,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. It doesn't look like you need to verify your account yet. Please know that verification cannot be requested, but is slowly being rolled out to users of Upwork. If the team finds the need to verify your account, you will be notified through an email, or through a notification in your account with more information on how you can complete the verification process.

 

I have checked your account and I highly suggest you update your profile picture. Please note that your profile must represent you as an individual and that all the information in your profile including your profile photo needs to be accurate, truthful, and verifiable. Please check this help article for more information about profile pictures and visit our blog for more tips on choosing an awesome profile photo.

Hello,


Please my account was not approved initially, then I updated my skills and resubmitted my profile for approval. I saw it is supposed to take 24 hrs for me to get feedback but it's almost 48 hrs yet no feedback from Upwork. I would like to know if my account has been approved and when I would be eligible for ID verification.

 

Thanks.
