Hi There Upwork Crew,

 

I've just signed up and submitted my profile for review. However I noticed during the process that if I had added in a "business email" address I would have an option for a more premium account...is this correct? I could enter my professional email from my GSuite account however I'm currently in the process of switching up the address. Just want to verify this and see what my options are. Also, I would like to link to my website to my profile as it is my portfolio.. is that a possibility?

 

Thanks Upwork Community.

No.

 

As far as how Upwork actually works... There is no such thing as "business email".

Upwork does not make a distinction bettween your GSuite email address, or the email address at JoliesShoeSales.com, or your email address at MyLittlePonySuperfans.org

No.

Hmmm... That's typically going to be a violation of Upwork ToS.

You are not supposed to link your Upwork profile to a website which has your contact information on it, or a contact form.
