I took a picture of my driver's licence and uploaded it as directed (saved it as a JPEG, checked the quality, etc.), but I kept getting a message saying that it was not an accepted ID. Then I got a message that said I had reached my maxium number of atempts to upload my ID, and I was locked out. I opened a ticket through Upwork support, but I see many others have had this issue as well, and I'm still waiting to hear back from Upwork after three hours. Does anyone know if this an issue that can be resolved quickly so I can resume submitting proposals? Thanks!

Having similar issues,

Tried uploading proof of ID per the guidelines using all different specified formats however now I've reached the maximum number of tries (3). Started a help ticket and it was marked as solved eithout anyone getting in contact with me. Basically now my proficle is in limbo pending a response I'm not hopeful to get. Should I just start over?

I can't start my id verification. When I click on this link it says that I'm not authorized to see this page.

Thank you.

What could possibly motivate you to post your ID in a public forum for every member of the community to download and potentially use in nefarious ways?

Hi Tyler,

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.

For some reason my driver's license could not be verified, if an UpWork Customer Service representative could contact me that would be fantastic.
