I uploaded my state driver's license but after I clicked the submit link I noticed that my jpeg file was upside down. Then I was notified that my verification failed and that my account was put on hold.
How can I remedy this situation?
I checked your account, and one of our agents already updated your ticket providing further assistance. Please check the instruction they shared, and feel free to post your questions on the ticket so that the agent can assist you further. Thank you!
I tried both my state ID and passport, they couldn't be verified, and so I am unable to apply for a job. I don't know what gives, the files are .png, scanned images with good resolution. Ideally, I would contact tech support of course, however none of the support links seem to work. Please help.
For some reason, Upwork wouldn't accept my ID even though my picture was high resotion, followed the directions, and was clear. So I went through a chat session with a representative who said that he was fixing it and that I would be verified with a check beside my name. That didn't happen. I then had a phone call with a rep and was told the same thing and it seemed to work fro a while. But now when I login it is asking AGAIN for me to verify my ID. I'm thinking about just giving up on the platform. It's taken me hours to try and get this taken care of and now I've gone from mildly irritated to angry. At this point, I'm going to have to start telling my colleagues not to use you when they ask about freelance work. It has not remotely been worth the time I've spent on this one thing with nothing to show for it with no change in status over several weeks.
It looks like you are referring to verifying your location. I would like to note that Upwork has different verifications in place, and users may be asked to complete different verification processes to ensure that the marketplace is safe for everyone.
As for the verification that you yet to do, you are being requested to submit an ID to be able to verify your location and gain access to jobs that have a location requirement. Here is more information about this type of verification. Just the same, I have shared your account information with the Customer Support Team, and they will reach out to you to assist you further with your concern.
i tried verifying my upwork account with my government id and i reached the maximum tries. So i was asked to contact customer support for that. how do i go about it.
