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

Hi there!

I just want to know if my account is already verified because my friend told me that I should receive an email about it. He asked me to try to submit a proposal but I receive an error that I do not meet all the client's preferred qualifications.

I hope that you can help me with my concern. Thank you so much.

Stay safe and healthy. God bless you all.

 

Kind regards,

Nardalisa Donaire


This is no error message, just informational. You are able to send proposals, hence your account is approved. 

Dear Officer,

I hope you're fine.

Can you please let me know whether my account has been approved or not?

Waiting for your kind response.
Thanks

Hi Hassan,

 

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.

 

Thank you.

I've been newly registered to the Upwork platform and I really like the way how it works!

I'm a non US citizen (Nepalese) residing in Nepal. My previous work experience matches with jobs posted here and it's quite impressive too. 

My question is... (a) How a non US citizen can work and get paid in Upwork?

Any relevant advice and/or suggestion would be much appreciated and welcomed. 

 

Thanking you

Pradip

Hi Pradip,

Welcome to Upwork community. Earning money from Upwork is simple.

- Find a job using the search option or from your job feed.

- Place your bid by using the Submit a Proposal button.

- Wait until you get a call for interview.

- Complete your interview and if you can convince the client, you will get hired.

- Complete your job, submit it and request payments.

- You will receive funds when your client release the payments.

- After that add a payment method from the settings. (you can do it earlier too)

- Place a withdraw using that method.

And thats how you can work and get paid.

You will learn all the details and conditions in time. Just keep exploring.

Thanks.

Hi Pradip,

 

Non U.S citizens are also welcome to work as a freelancer on Upwork. Once your account is approved, you can start sending proposals to job posts. You will need to add your payment method and select your tax status. Kindly check this help article for more information on how you get paid.

I am trying to sign up, but in the location section United States is automatically selected and cannot be changed. I've been a U.S. citizen for all 30 years of my life, but I haven't lived in the U.S. for over five years so I don't have any use for a U.S. address or phone number. How can I complete the application process under these circumstances?

Hi Bob,

I`m sorry about the inconvenience this had caused you. Could you please confirm your current location/country and our team will update it from our end. Thank you.

Hello Goran,

 

I am currently living in Prague, Czech Republic.

 

While trying to complete the profile creation, my country section is grayed out and I am not able to change it from United States. The phone number section is also auto-populated by a "+1" so I can't use my Czech phone number either.

 

Best regards,

 

Bob

Your country needs to be the country you reside in, so you need to change it to China.

Also, you can only represent yourself in your freelancer account. If you are a team of 5 people, all 5 need to register a freelancer account and you need to create an agency. Otherwise you will be in trouble real soon. 

Hi Martina,

 

Very thanks for your advice.

Hello Groan,

 

I am not a US citizen and I currently reside in Egypt, and I have the same problem. The US box is greyed out and I cannot change my location. Please help.

Hi Joanne, Thanks for your reply. I have another query. I created this profile in 2017. At that time my application was rejected. But a few days back i.e in 2020 I resubmitted profile for approval. So since it is approved now. I wanna ask, will this delay of 3 years affect my account in any way? I mean, I have not been active for three years. But now I want to work actively. Waiting for your reply.

Hi Muhammad,

 

Your profile will not be affected in any way. Feel free to continue working and sending proposals, thank you.
