Hi Maha,

 

Thank you for your message. 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 the resources in this post to help you get started. It doesn't look like you are required to complete any verification at the moment. The team will let you know if there is a need for any verification in the future.

 

Thank you,

Pradeep

Hi,

 

I've submitted my ID for verification a while ago, but it is still showing the "We're reviewing your documents and will get back to you within 1 business day." note. How long does this usually take?

 

Would appreciate your urgent support with this process.

 

Thanks,

vikash

Hi,

 

I'm new to Upwork and I submitted my profile for approval over 30 hours ago, but I haven't received any confirmation email of whether my account has been accepted or rejected.

 

I'd like to know my approval status.

Thank you.

I created an account with Upwork but have received odd error messages. Is my account account approved?

My tax residence on the Tax Information paged has been added as well as well as the Cntact Information.

 

Error message: In order to change your address to the United States, you must first provide your W-9 tax information here.

 

Clicking here leads me back to the Tax Information page, which has been filled out.

Hello Upwork Team 

 

As a new member to your freelancing platform, I created my account here just recently and submitted my profile for review. I am well aware that an account is usuually approved within 24 Hrs however it has been almost 2 days and my profile is still under review and I cannot send proposals to potential clents. I am an aspiring writer and I have been working with other freelancing platforms in the past who have all provided excellent and timely customer service to me, so I hope my experience here is the same. I would really appreciate it if someone coud take a look at this and finish the review process for my profile as soon as possible.

Hi Sikandar,

 

I'm sorry to hear about your experience regarding your verification. I just checked and your profile has been approved already. You can check this on your end by trying to submit a proposal. If youโ€™re able to submit proposals, it means your profile was approved!

Is there something I can do about this?

Hi everybody. I registered for upwork a long time ago, but my profile was not accepted. Now I decided to update my profile and submit again. But I still haven't received any messages about whether my profile has been approved by Upwork. What should I do? Can I start looking for the first order or do I need to wait for some messages from upwork

How can I find out if my Upwork account is now fully approved/authorised?! 

I added my payment billing method - Paypal (account) when I signed up and now I was interested in upgrading to plus package. But someone wiser (kudos to Petra R) suggested that perhaps wait till your account is apporved - while this is most sensible, but I cannot find out how I can get this information. My account seems to be functioning for couple of weeks now, I am submitting proposals and all etc. 

Notes - I am a non-US user and reside in Pakistan. 

 

Did i miss anything, I will be happy to share more info if you can help me, is there anyother account authorisations proofs or documentation that is needed!!! 

Would appreciate any help. Thanks

 

Regards

Gulraiz Raza

Hi Gulraiz,

 

Welcome to Upwork! I checked and can confirm that your profile has been accepted. An indication that your profile was approved was you were able to submit proposals.

 

You may now upgrade to plus. To purchase this:

 

  1. Go to Settings โ€บ Memberships & Connects
  2. Select View or Edit Membership Plan
  3. Choose the Upgrade button on the Plus plan

Hey annie could you please help me. I want to verify my identity on upwork but the id verification part is not on my account. Could you please also check if my account was approved. I can send a proposal now but I am still not sure since the id verification section is not on my account.

Hi Mahir,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I'm happy to inform you that your profile has been accepted. You may now start submitting proposals to jobs you're interested in. Please also check this post and the freelancer resources to help you get started on Upwork.

 

Regarding the ID verification, I have checked your account, and looks like it doesn't need to be verified yet. Please note that you will not be able to initiate the identity verification yourself and it cannot be requested. If the team finds the need for you to do it, you will receive an email detailing the instructions on how to complete your verification. You may want to check this help article for more information.
