How can I know that my profile is approved?

How do I check if my profile is approved? Thank you

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi Dee Ann Jo,

 

Thank you for your message and welcome to Upwork! I'm happy to report that your profile has been approved. 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! 

 

Here are some resources I compiled to help you get started on Upwork; I suggest you review each of them carefully:

I hope this helps!

Good  afternoon.

How do I know if my account was approved or not?. Have been more than a week without any email. Thank you in advanced.

Hi Isis D, Your accout not approved yet. There is a blue tick on your profile when your account approved. If there is no blue tick your account not approved. Screenshot 2022-01-18 222550.png

Ok Thanks!. When Will I receive an approved or disapproved email?

Nope. Don't spread misinformation, it confuses the newbies. 

Identity verification and profile approval are two completely different things. 

Have you given your data ID Card etc. to Upwork for verification of account? If you give then wait your account approve within 3 working days. If you not give then give your data to Upwork

Nope again. 

Hi Isis,

 

Your account has been accepted. Please check out Resource Center where youโ€™ll find some excellent topics and learn more about Upwork.

 

Good luck!

1) Can somebody from the Upwork team please confirm if my profile has been approved or not? 

2) I am not able to enable 2-step authentication on my account, as I haven't received any verification email from Upwork despite clicking on the resend verification email button multiple times. I have checked my spam folder as well. Would be grateful if someone at Upwork could help in this regard.

 

Thanks

Hi Ahmed,

 

1) Your profile is approved and you can start sending proposals once you're ready.

2) One of our team members will follow up on your ticket as soon as possible and will assist you further with the two-step verification. Thank you.

Andrea, thank you so much. But I did not get the approval mail nor was verified with the blue tick? And without approval I cannot submit proposals successfully. Thanks

Yusuf, the blue tick mark you're referring to is the ID Verification badge. This is a separate process from getting your profile approved and being able to submit proposals. You can learn about it here

Hi,

 

May I know how I can understand if my profile is approved or not?

 

I will be so pleased if you let me know this

Hi.

 

Thanks for your message.

 

But when I would like to upgrade my profile to freelancer pulse, it shows me "You need to verify your identity to complete the operation. To verify your identity please click here" message. What should I do?

Hi Behnam,

 

Could you try to clear your cache and cookies? You can also click on the green hyperlink to complete the verification process.
If you're still experiencing any problems after this, let me know. Thank you.

I did not get a verification email.

Hi Laniqua,

 

Thank you for your message. I checked and it looks like your account has already been accepted. 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. You should still 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. 

 

Thank you
