Hi, I'm new to Upwork and now I have to post question using my client account since my freelancer account somehow could not post/reply. I have the same problem that my profile has been rejected for almost 14 days with the same reason:"Insufficient for the marketplace", even when I have changed/added skills, portfolio, experiences..., almost everything.
Can you please tell me how to get approved? Thank you in advance

I applied to join Upwork today, and was told that I will receive an email when my application has been approved. I have not received an email, but my profile says "Congrats, you're now part of Upwork!" and I'm able to submit proposals. Does this mean I have been accepted?

Hi Sajeel,


Thank you for submitting your profile for review. The review process takes 24-48 hours to complete from the time you submitted it. Once the process is complete, you will receive an email notification to update you of the status of your profile approval. Please note that resubmitting your profile again for review resets the time it takes to review it. If you have still have not received any update on your profile approval status after 24-48 hours, please let us know so we can check this for you.

Hi all,


my profile has been sitting in 'under review' for over a week.

Could someone please advise?

Hi Dana, 


I checked your account and I can see that you are yet to submit your profile for review. You need to click the review application button to make sure you did not miss any section of the profile creation process. Any portion that is highlighted in red needs to be filled-in. Please review your application and update the missing fields to be able to submit your profile for review. In this case, please update the city field and resubmit your profile for review. 


Once you submit your profile, it takes at least 24 to 48-hours for the process to complete and you will be notified via email about your account.
