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

Is there an email confirmation if my profile has been approved or not?

Hi, could you please inform me about the status of my account? After submitting my application I was brought back to the searching page with the following notification "Congrats, you're now part of Upwork! Tips to get started" and I'm not sure if that's suppose to mean I was accepted or not. Thanks!

Hi Rissalyn,

I checked and it seems that you are yet to submit your profile for review. Please, make sure all the fields are completed within your application form and then click Review Application at the bottom of the page. Our team will reach out to you with the results within 24 hours.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hello,
I have been creating my profile last week, with all information required.
I have then clicked on "Review Application"... but since then, when I log in, it only comes back to the profile and indicates "If your profile is approved, it will become the public profile you’ll use to market your freelance business to clients (you can edit it after approval)."
Could you possibly let me know what should I do to get my profile confirmed and move forward to get some freelance work please?
Thank you,
Geraldine

Hi Geraldine,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. 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.

Thanks Alexandar , i really appreciate your help

Hello, 

 

Can I know if my profile is activated? I have submitted it and it looks all fine - I can send proposals, I have connections, but I never got confirmation e-mail, so I just want to be sure.

 

Thank you!

Hi Atanas,

 

Yes your profile is approved and you can start sending proposals when you`re ready. Thank you.

I can't see if my application has been approved either, my application is just stuck on the 'review application' page and I can't seem to submit it?

 

Thanks

My friend has a problem about his profile, he can’t post, reply, and response to any email of support upwork. Currently, he has a problem with his payment and can’t reach to support anywhere. Moreover, his profile’s approval has not been accepted by upwork. It would be appreciated, if there was anyone available to help out his issues.

Hi Pon,

 

Unfortunately, we are unable to discuss details of another user's account with you for privacy reasons. We hope you understand.

Is my Upwork profile approved?

Hi Pritesh,

 

I've looked into your account and saw that it wasn't submitted yet. Please review your information, add your City and click Review Application. Let us know if you need anything else.

~ Riri

 

Looking for some assistance from Upwork and this thread seems to be the place to do so where it concerns profile acceptance. First off thank you for your time.


The problem I have is that I've created my profile before the weekend and assumed the 24 hour review / acceptance timer might've been office hours only so I simply waited. So far, nothing's happened yet.

 

I've filled in the required boxes so to speak and submitted it for review. Checked the support page, asked the upwork bot and kept a close eye on my e-mail but sadly, nothing to inspire confidence yet. Hence I ask here and hope everything went alright with my application for membership of the site.

 

Should you require any further information please let me know.

Hi Tim,

Just to confirm that your application haven't been submitted for a review, if you`re ready please add your City and go to the bottom of the page and click on Review Application.
If you`re directed back to the same page please try clearing your cache and cookies or logging in with another browser. Thank you.

Not sure who Markus is but Goran V. your response helped me out.

 

Turns out that clearing my webbrower cache did the trick in solving the issue with redirecting. I was now able to submit in full and got the coveted or dreaded ''Under Review'' status.

 

Cheers for the assistance. The wait begins.

Hi Tim,

 

I`m sorry about the confusion with the names. I`m glad that it helped you in submitting your application, if further help is needed let me know. Thank you.

Hello,

I have the same problem as several people before, I can only review my profile but not submit it for approval. I've tried several browsers, but I can't get another option. Would you look into this please?

Kind regards
Thilo

Hi Thilo,

You will need to add your city to your address before you can submit your application for a review. Once you`re ready please click on the Review Application button at the bottom of the page. 
If you`re directed back to the same page please try clearing your cache and cookies or logging in with another browser. Thank you.

~ Goran

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply. I always add my city, and when I hit review
application I get directed back to the same page and the city is cleared! I
have already tried other browsers and deleted the cache, it's always the
same!

Thank you for the follow up Thilo,

 

Our team will reach out to you via ticket and email as soon as possible and assist you further with your application.
