This is normal.

48 hours is NOT how long it takes for an account to be approved.

48 hours is a goal that somebody once set for how long they would like it to take, and then somebody else wrote that goal into a message that is displayed to prospective new freelancers.


It's the weekend. Quite likely nobody is working on this over the weekend.


It might take 2 business days, not 48 hours. It might take a week. Be patient.
