Skyping

Hi all,

 

I'm new to Upwork and my first potential client has asked for my Skype ID. Is it OK to  provide personal contact info like this or is that breaking the rules?

 

Thanks,

 

Ann

Hi Ann,

 

if client asked you for Skype ID then you can share it. It will not offence any upwork policy.

Keep Smiling.

Hi Ann,

 

It's okay to share and use alternative means of communication with your client. You may want to record main terms, deadlines and changes in Upwork Messages in case there is ever a dispute though.

 

Also, remember that it's very important that the client hires you on Upwork and you see a contract under My Jobs before you start working on the project. All payments also need to be made on Upwork.
