 You need a proper credit card (not a prepaid or virtual or debit card) or a card backed PayPal account,(in some countries)  otherwise there is no point creating a client account as you will not be able to hire.

Hi Rohan,

Use Petra comment as reference for what type of cards are accepted.

 

For more details about billing methods see this Help Article. More extended version for adding a billing method can be found Here as well.

You create a client account via your existing account (Settings, bottom left, create a company) then you use your usual withdrawal methods on your freelancer account and your credit card on your client account. The two are entirely separate financially, but you can toggle between them easily. 

i can can't create my account in your given option.  how do i open my account .  please hlep

 

Shridhar, it looks like you already have a freelancer account. Are you trying to create a client account as well? You should be able to do it by going to your Settings and clicking Create a Client Account in the bottom left corner.

I can't create a Client Account as well. Can you help me?

 

I click the link in the profile, enter name of my client company, add billing method (Paypal) and then page reloads and offers me to enter the name of my company again.

Hi Yuri,

 

I checked and see you created two client-companies and are able to post jobs. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

What shoul I do to create jobs?

I don't see my two companies. I don't understand how to use them.

There are no companies on the page where they were created. That's why I created two because I didn't see the first one.

 

Thanks!

I see. I suppose you mean my two old clien accounts: Drawing Hut and Translation Hut.

But I am saying that I can't create a new one from the next menues

 

settings ->
create a company ->
create a client account

 

This just doensn't create a company.
