Account Suspended

Please resolve my issue !!
I am not able to submit proposals as it says "you can't submit a proposal because your account is suspended.".
However, when I submitted an appeal to unsuspend my account they responded that my account is not suspended. Please resolve my issue.
I'm not getting a proper support on this. I've been only asked to clear cache & cookies & I've tried it several times but doesn't work. Also, the same issue persists on mobile app. There must be a technical issue then. Please investigate this matter.

Thank you!


Hi Hassaan,


If the action buttons that you usually use are grayed out, the Trust & Safety team may have suspended your account. In that case, you will have received a support ticket with an email notification about the action on your account. Please refer to your ticket on this page and reply to the email if you have any questions for the team.

I have entered my credit card information which has no issues anywhere else, and as a back-up I have added a pay pal as well. But I keep receiving a message "We found a problem with your primary billing method and to put it on hold. Update it now." and that my account is restricted.


I am not sure how to reach out to support as the Chat bot just sends me articles. 

Hi Nick,


I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with your billing method. We’ve escalated your community post to a support ticket. One of our agents will be in touch with you soon to assist.

Hey Upwork,

My account is on hold. I am a verified freelance with approve 400+ earnings. Tomorrow I received another. I attached the bank account and they asked for the identity verification. Pls, give me a response as soon as possible. It really means a lot to me. I am your trusty freelancer and this is my only asset of earning. I went through the link and tried to submit it but the OTP is not receiving on my account also there is the error of being maximum limit we send as you see in screenshot attached below.

Thanks, Arjay for replying back. I didn't receive OTP for further verification.  Please resolve the issue as soon as possible. I have all the document required. Let me clear that my ID card name is Ahmed Raza while the account of bank is made on Ahmed. The rest are the same eg my cnic or all the things.

Hello Community. I already write a post from 04/22/2024 Solved: Re: Account Suspended - Page 43 - Upwork Community and a Moderator "NikolaS". member from upwork tell me. "Thank you for reaching out to us. I will be happy to help. I shared your concern with the team handling your case and one of our agents will follow up with you on your support ticket as soon as possible to assist you further." i have more of ONE MONTH suspended and all the time the upwork support tell me, wait we will work over your problem and nothing happend. How much time i need to wait more for this problem is solve.???? I dont understand why is so bad the support. I have more of 9 years working in upwork and is the first time that something like that happening. 


Anyone can really help me please and not only tell something. "false expectations".

It is common, no more fast support. Refresh your ticket with updates and additional questions. No other ways.

I don't know why I'm suspended. I posted a job and can't see why I'm suspended.

I'm also add a paying method (Paypal). 
Is the reason the manual view of my identification?

I think there was a misunderstanding, I have written the job with AI and that I need help for my thesis, but the help was  installing of a given local website (with instructions ) from the university not the theses itself.





Hi Halil,


I can see that team reached out to you already about your account. You can check the information in this ticket

My new account is suspended/says I need updated billing.  I tried to chat with support but the bot just keeps saying to check my email (no email) or to go to upwork academy.  How do I get help on this?  I tried adding a new billing method, but it still says I'm suspended/need to update billing

Check your tickets here https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/requests

Maybe something useful there.

Unfortunately there is nothing there



Should be threre.

Dont worry, some moderator here will create ticket for you when read your topic. Keep eye at updates.

Is there any way to get their attention?  I still don't have anything.  This is so weird, I just want to hire someone lol
