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?
