How can I know that my profile is approved?

Hello,

 

  1. I would like to know if my profile has been aprroved....?
  2. Can you not have a status marker in the profile information so new users know whether or not they have been approved?

Thx,

Melissa

Hello Bojan, thanks for getting back to me! I tried going through it again using Firefox versus Safari and came up against the same issue. The only option presented to me is still 'Review Application'

 

Not sure where to go from here!

Hi there,

How long does it take for a profile to be approved? **Edited for Community Guidelines**

Hi Marietta,

 

I checked your account and I can see that you are yet to submit your profile for review. You need to click the review application button to make sure you did not miss any section of the profile creation process. Any portion that is highlighted in red needs to be filled-in. Please review your application and update the missing fields to be able to submit your profile for review. In this case, please update the city field and resubmit your profile for review. 

 

Once you submit your profile, it takes at least 24 to 48-hours for the process to complete and you will be notified via email about your account.

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

My profile's approval is pending. It was mentioned as 12 hrs for approval (while submitting) but still haven't heard from Upwork. Its almost 24 hrs since submission. Is there any problem with the account or is this the usual? 

 

 

Thank you.

Hi Gladwin,

 

I checked and it looks like your account has already been accepted. You should be able to send proposals to jobs on the general marketplace. Please, make sure you check resources in this post to help you get started.

 

Thank you!

Hello, Upwork community,

 

I have an issue with the profile being approved, an application review request was sent weeks ago, but I haven't received any messages on any media to inform me of its status, as it looks like it's still pending.

Is there a way to submit an application other way, or get assistance on that matter, which would be much appreciated.

 

Best regards,

Alex

Hi Alex,

Upon checking, you haven't finish in creating your profile yet. Please continue in setting up your profile and you'll get a notification once it's approved. You will also see the notification when you log in to your account. Thanks!

Hello, Jo-An,

 

I've reviewed my application and filled in the second address field, by adding apart of the address from the first field to it, as it seemed to be necessary, however did not show as an application error, and did the job.

Thank you for your assistance.

 

Best regards,

Alex

hi , same thing happens with me . i submitted my profile and i get the page shown on the screenshot . and until now i haven't received any response

Hi Patricia Nicole,

 

I checked your account and it looks like our team already responded to your ticket regarding this concern. Please refer to the ticket to view the team's response. We thank you for your patience.

I have the same problem. I've been waiting for days for approval. I tried filling the address line as stated in the previous comments. Still nothing, having the exact same text on the top of the page: 

"If your profile is approved, it will become the public profile youโ€™ll use to market your freelance business to clients (you can edit it after approval)."

It doesn't say the form is unfinished or anything, it doesn't say we are processing your profile. That text is not changing no matter what I do. I don't know what is taking so long.

Hello!

I created my upwork profile this Monday early in the morning. I got a message saying that I will either get an acceptance or rejection email in 24h. Now it is Wednesday and almost 72h since I created my profile and I have still not received any message. What can I do?

Applied for a new profile two weeks ago, haven't gotten an answer yet.

Hi Dobri,

 

It doesn't look like you have submitted your profile for a review yet. Please, go to Create your profile page on Upwork.com, make sure that all the fields are completed and, when ready, click on Review Application button at the bottom of the page. 

~ Valeria

Hey Valeria

Thanks for the reply, not sure how that happened ๐Ÿ™‚ submitted from my phone now.

Hi,

How do I know if my profile is approved because there's no submit button?

 

Thank you.

 

 

Best Regards,

Mariz
