United States Location Verification - Unable to do

Getting this error:


Unfortunately, you cannot submit a proposal for this job post because it requires location verification. Based on your previous attempts, you are currently not eligible to verify your location. Please contact customer support.

 

I had uploaded the driver's id once but it said verification failed. 

 

 

I need help on this. 

 

Please help me resolve the issue.

Ok. 

I tried to upload my ID to verify my location and got an email saying it was unable to be authenticated and a hold has been placed on my account. I guess it must have been a bad photo, but the email doesn't give any details about why it wasn't accepted.  I can't find a place to contact customer service, and the site gives no information about what to do in this situation, so I have no idea how to fix this.  

Hi Erin,

One of our agents will reach to you via ticket and assist you further with this.

I'm having the same problem. There is a message at the top of any job posting stating "You've reached the maximum number of tries for uploading your ID. Please contact customer support." Then the help keeps pushing me to talk to the community. Looks like you solved this problem for some others, would you mind helping me also, please.

Thanks!

I have reached the max time to upload my id twice now. Can someone you help me with verifying my location?

Hi Marilyn,

Please go ahead and click on a job that you would like to send a proposal to that is U.S only. At the top of the page you should see a notification asking you to contact customer support with a green link. If you go ahead and click the link, it should allow you to create a ticket directly to customer support so that they can help you resolve your verification issue.

I am having trouble with this as well. I uploaded two different photos of my driver's license and the system was unable to get what it needed from the photos. I ended up maxing out the number of alotted tries and when I tried to contact customer service it told me to go to the community for answers.

 

Can someone please assist me with this issue?

Hello Bethany,

 

I'm sorry to hear that. Have you tried sending us a ticket by clicking the Contact Customer Support in the error message displayed when you try to submit a proposal to a US only job? If you are still having some trouble, please respond here. Thanks!

I am encountering the same thing. Anytime I go to submit to customer support it send me here. 

I need help ASAP. I tried uploading my passport to verify my location and it was rejected, only to have the system lock me out. I'd like to upload a newly scanned version which I think will work, but I can't. Please help.

I am having the same problem trying to have my United States passport verified.  My account was tagged as "Solved" because advice was given but I followed all advice:  passport expires 2022, eliminated cookies for this site, tried another browser but still need help.  It has taken so long to resolve that I can no longer find the jobs I had selected.  Mack, the moderator said he would assist if I needed more help and I do need assistance. thank you

I am also experiencing this issue. Your suggestion to click on the "contact customer service" link only brings me back to "Ask the Community" button option. Please provide an alternate solution to this issue so that I am able to bid on projects.
