Greetings fellow members,
I requested an API key over 2 months ago but didn't receive a response for 2 months, so I reached out to the support team. They told me my key was rejected for the following reason:
"Unfortunately, your API key request was rejected due to lack of experience on the Upwork platform. I understand that this is not the news you may want to hear, but you may resubmit your API key application once you have acquired more contracts and earned from them."
I do not understand the requirements. This is not mentioned as a requirement on the API key requests page, and I guess not even in the docs?
I have earned more than 24,000$. I've been on the platform regularly for the last 1.5 years. I've had 34 contracts till now. I am Top Rated as well.
I do not understand how I don't have enough experience with UpWork then?
