Hi Upwork community!
just started last week - profile 100%, visibility Public, 4 proposals sent out.
I am reading now the Freelancers' Guide and it says that your profile needs to be approved, or verified.
I did not receive any email from Upwork except for the initial email address verification and marketing messages.
What is my status?
Your profile was accepted, feel free to continue with submitting proposals for jobs that you find to suit your skills and experience.
I created my profile on upwork and would like to know if it has been approved yet? Is there anything else I need to do before I can start looking for work on Upwork? How do I set up my payment options?
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.
You can find payment methods available in your country by going to your Settings> Get Paid and clicking Add a Payment method. Check out this help article for more information.
its been a while since i created my profile , but still showing waiting for approval .
today i receive a email saying my account became private
How you can help me find what is the issue ?
