Am still in the middle of an interview with a client, and am just curious i want to know, Is it allowed to share emails on upwork? Because i have been asked for my email by the client in order for him to provide me  access to the drop box folder containing some files he want to be worked on, and i don't want to get into trouble with upwork. Please advise.

Hi Emmanuel,

Communicating outside of Upwork is not a violations, or sharing your email with your client as well. But, getting paid or asking for payments outside of Upwork is a violation of our TOS. Thank you!

Hi Cassandra,

 

It is no longer allowed to share contact information prior to a contract being in place.

 

I hope this helps!
