I would like to close my current account (that doesn't have any jobs or feedback or nothing whatsoever which would benefit me to open a new account) and open a new one due to the government grant I'm applying to.
I understand that opening a second account is a Violation on Upwork's ToS, but it also states in the ToS "You agree not to register for more than one Client Account and one Freelancer Account without express written permission from us ", meaning that in specific circumstances it could be allowed by Upwork.
Once again, as my current account doesn't have any negative (or positive for that matter) feedback, and it would be really beneficiary to open a new account because of the grant (which I'll gladly explain in PM), would it be possible to allow to open a new account?
To apply for the grant which funds the opening of new distribution/sales channels, the date of creating an account should be after the grant application was open.
And with those funds, I could open an agency account (as I own the AR/VR agency), and hire a manager who would solely be dedicated to finding work on Upwork (through his/agency profile).
So I think it would really be beneficial to be able to open a new account
Thanks for the question and participating in the discussion
You can open an agency from your current account as well. I can see that you have opened a ticket for the same question and our team will assist you further on your ticket. Thank you!
