How long does it take for a newly made profile to be approved ? I registered yesterday but still haven't received any approval or decline.

Keep in mind that upwork gets 10000 new applications a day and only approves 2% of them. 

Re your profile: I have a faint idea what you are offering but no clue how that would work remotely, but aside from that, you are not allowed to be paid on a commission basis on upwork. Plus, how would you ever verify your client's success? You don't have access to their bookkeeping or something. So you might have to adjust your business model if you want to work through this site.

Thank you for the reply. My service is closing deals with prospects over the phone and it's perfectly fine to work remotely as like I mentioned it's a service over the phone. I can verify my client's success by knowing how many prospects on a daily/weekly basis have purchased the client's product/service through me. I understand I can't work on a commission basis and I'll readjust my business model.

I'am trying to create a new profile on Upwork. I completed all the needed information but still don't have option to submit my profile. I have only next options "Review Application", "Create Client Account Instead" and "Delete My Account". Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

Hi, I've tried three browser's and no luck. It just keeps staying on the
sign up form. My city field is empty and I can't update it (London).

Hi Andrew,

 

Please start typing your address in the field that says "Start Typing your Address" and chose one of the drop-down suggestions. This should auto populate each field along with the city and allow you to submit your application for a review. If you experience any problems again, let me know. Thank you.
