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,

Hi there,

I am seeing this message when I login into the Upwork "

Your profile is under review

You should hear back within 24 hours. You will be able to submit proposals once your profile is approved."

 

It is more than 24 hours now, but I did not hear back from Upwork team. How do I know the status of my account?

Thanks.

Sikkandar.

Hi Sikkandar, 

I'll go ahead and follow up your account with the team so that they can proceed with reviewing your account. I apologise for the delay, and thank you for your patience.

Hi!

 

I'm new here and I have no idea if I'm the only one experiencing this issue, but it's been a week since I submitted my profile for review and I still haven't heard from UpWork. Can anyone help me with this?

 

Thank you very much in advance.

I took a look at your profile. I don't see any red flags,

I think you just need to be patient. Wait at least two weeks total before worrying.

Meanwhile, work on your portfolio. Tricky, yes, given your stated job skills, but you're smart. You can figure something out.

I think your profile text is a bit confusing in terms of communicating what it is you will do FOR ME, THE CLIENT.

But it's not bad. I would say you appear to be more of an asset to Upwork and to potential clients than 90% of new contractors whose profiles I have looked at.

Welcome to the Upwork Community, Mary!

 

I am excited to inform you that your profile has been accepted. Thank you for improving your profile.

 

I wish you best of luck finding your first job on Upwork and I suggest you look through this thread to find some useful information.

Hello! How do I know if my account is getting reviewed or if it got rejected/approved? I have submitted my Upwork account days ago and nothing shows up. I keep getting redirected to the "introduce yourself" page.

Hello. Itโ€™s been three weeks since Iโ€™ve registered my profile. No answer at all. Not sure what could be wrong, but three weeks is much more than stated 24 hours.

Hi Goran, thanks for your help. The form worked in firefox.

How long does it take for a profile to be approved?

It typically takes 24 hours to review your application and Upwork will notify you if your application is approved or declined.

Hello, We are past the 24 hour mark for approval or denial of my profile. Please advise on the status.
Thankyou.

I haven't gotten an email about whether or not I've been accepted on Upwork. I'm also not seeing the message "Your profile is under review" like the Upwork Help Center says I should. I'm not sure what I should do to find out if I'm accepted because I haven't gotten an email.

Hello, I try to register as a freelancer, i fill the form and at the end it looks like I have only the option to become a client. Can someone tells me where I do the mistake to end up there?

Okay! Cheers!

Hi. I left Upwork two years ago for health reasons and now I am back recently. I have tried submitting proposals and every time I do, there's a window that pops up and says, "Thank you for completing your Upwork verification upload. Please allow 3-4 business days for your verification to be processed." I don't understand. I didn't submit and ID because in the first place I was not asked to. It just said, "Thank you..." and so on and it's been over 4 days since and I still can't apply for a job and submit proposal(s). There's no button to click either so I can upload my ID if that's what all Upwork is asking for. Can anyone help me please? Thank you.

Hi Michelle,

 

One of our team members will reach out to you via ticket as soon as possible and assist you further, thank you.
