I had uploaded the driver's id once but it said verification failed.
I need help on this.
Please help me resolve the issue.

I had made my upwork profile a month or so back, but havent started working yet. I tried to send a proposal for a job and it asked me to verify my identity which i did by uploading my Valid USA driving liscence and i got an email back saying they cannot verify my id and put a hodl on my account. NO explanations as to why it did not accept and no cotact information to talk to someone to work out the issue.
What am I supoose to do now? HOw does anyone go from here?
Thank you Andrea. I appreciate someone reaching out to me. When I click on to the support ticket it says my issues are solved. They arent. I hope they do reach out to me regarding my ticket and not assume that it has been solved becasue the staus in the bar says it.
Looking forward to the help,
Thanks so much
Mary I agree with you , I also have one major issue with this system. There seems to be absolutely no way to contact and get help or call number associated . I have uploaded my drivers liscence which is Valid. I dont know what the issue is and all I got was email saying they have placed my account on hold because they cannot seem to to verify it.
What to do next? How does one go about assuring their identity and veryfing their credentials? who can I reach out to? We are here to find work as freelancers and help those who need it. Instead of giving proposals I have spent half of my day figuring out how and who to reach out to me regarding the issue. Still no one has bothered.
I am at my wits end quite honestly.
I havent even started sending proposal yet. I tried to apply for one as a freelancer and I get an email from upwork on account hold. I uploaded my Valid drivers liscence. Still in a limbo here. Can I send proposals or not? what to do next? what Id verification do you need? How does one get their account aactiavted etc?
Nichola if one gets stuck on the very first step and there is no one to reach out to , where do we go from there? I logged in to my account last night. Found a fitting job and wanted to send a proposal. When I clicked on it I was propted to a window to verify my ID, so I uploaded my Valid Driving Liscence. All I got was an email from upwork sayign that they have put my accoutn on hold since they cannot verify my ID.
No reason as to why or what to do next or who to contact. I have been trying since morning to reach out to any help or support. Franky, autobot doesnt help when it cant even understand my confusion. I havent even started getting a job as yet. Im new to the upwork community. Am I supposed to delete accoutn aadn apply again?what else do you need? its very discouraging when you see no one there to help out when we are trying to understand a system.
I just uploaded my ID and got an email a couple of minutes after, I do not not what I missed, can anybody tell me how I can fix this or who to contact to get that information?
Thank you for attempting to verify your location. Unfortunately, we could not authenticate the ID you uploaded.
As a result, we have placed a hold on your account. Please know you will still be able to work and complete any open contracts and withdraw earnings, but you won't be able to submit proposals for new jobs or accept new contracts.
We are sorry to have to take this step, but we must for the safety of our marketplace. Please let us know if you have any questions.
The Upwork Team
I'm new to Upwork, and when I was creating my profile, I uploaded my driver's license in which the address needed to be updated, and didn't match my current information. I recently had it updated, but now it says "You've reached the maximum number of tries to upload your ID."
How do I resolve this?
HELP! I have tried several times to redo my ID verification. I cannot contact the so called customer service because they simply do not care. This is the only place I was allowed to go. Please help me
I need to redo my ID verification.
I need to verify my identitfication with a customer support agent. My government id clearly states my first name on the id as it is written in the system. The site now states that I have exceeded the amount of times to verify identity. I need help getting this fixed, or I need to close my account.
I have this same issue. I was initially unsure about Upwork so I registered with an unofficial name (it's my name but not on my documents). I changed it but the verification documents, I do not have the one on the list. I newly migrated from Canada to the US and currently have an Employment Authorization Document. How do I verify my identity?
I checked your account, and it looks like your name change request has already been approved. I’ve also shared your concern with the team. One of our team members will reach out and assist you directly via a support ticket. Thank you!
I just created an UpWork profile yesterday, attempted to verify my drivers license, and immediately recieved an email saying it was inauthentic. When going to my profile to attempt the process again, I come to a webpage that reads "you don't currently have access to this page." How do I proceed? How do I request a video call to confirm my identity?
I attempted to get my ID verified, but was told to try again later. Does that really mean try again later or is that the default response if the ID is rejected for a reason such as too blurry, etc?
I'm sorry to hear you haven't been able to start the verification process. Could you please clear your cache and cookies or try using a different browser to complete it?
If the issue persists let us know.
I'm also having a similar issue. I tried uploading a picture of my government ID and it didn't match my Upwork name. (Zach/Zachary.) I updated my Upwork name to match and tried the process again--several times--and now it won't let me verify at all. Any work arounds for this? I can't find a way to initiate a video verification call with a real person.
I am unable to verify my ID using the forms provided. First, it was clear the Real ID's new LN (last name), FN (first, middle name) format is not recognized by Upwork and I was requested to update my Upwork account name. Upon retrying it's telling me that the same image used is now not of valid filetype, size, or DPI.
