Today I got my Identity Verification tab in my settings, I have a few questions: -
Q.1) I don't have any last legal name so how are you guys gonna verify my Identity?
Q.2) In my UpWork profile, my current name is "Tushar Sharma", but legally I don't have a last name so what should I do next to get my UpWork Account Verified?
Q.3) My last name in my UpWork profile i.e. "Sharma" is used by me because it was required by UpWork account registration
Let me know your thoughts on it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You may be asked to complete a visual verification and provide a valid government-issued ID. Acceptable documents include passport, national ID card (NIC/CNIC), driver's license, NBI Clearance (Philippines only), tax ID, voter ID, postal ID, or any other valid government-issued photo ID that meets these criteria.
Please note that your profile must represent you as an individual and that all the information in your profile, including your profile photo, needs to be accurate, truthful, and verifiable. We understand you may have provided a name and/or picture that you would like to update now. If that’s the case, and you’re being asked to verify your identity now, please proceed with submitting your ID and completing your Visual Verification anyways. If there is any issue or mismatch, our team will reach out to you directly to assist you.
Note that we occasionally ask users to re-verify because periodic checks ensure their accounts continue to reflect accurate information. Our goal is to make this process as seamless as possible and we thank you for your contribution to keeping Upwork a professional and safe community.
If you don't see a way to verify, that may be because you're not eligible yet. Please know that verification cannot be requested, but is slowly being rolled out to all talent. If the team finds the need to verify your account, you will be notified through an email, or through a notification in your account.

Hi there, I am experiencing difficulties with the ID verification process. When I attempted to verify my identity, I noticed that the Identity Verification page is missing from my settings. After asking the support bot for assistance and clicking the "Take me to Identity Verification" link, I was directed to a page that displayed the message 'Looking for something?
I have checked your account, and it doesn't need further verification yet. Please remember that you cannot initiate the identity verification yourself, and cannot be requested.

I wan to purchase connect on upwork. There were some issue with my master card. I requested my colleague to attach his bank master card, So I could buy connects. One card attachement, Upwork start asking for validation. The validation form have three fields. Name, date of birth and upload photo.
The name field is disable and contian name of my colleague (i mean card holder name) not my name. Is this validation for the bank account holder? not for upwork account holder?
Is this any violation of upwork term and condition? That we can not attach someone bank card?
I have no issue to provide my or my colleague Identity.
It violates Upwork's TOS if you're not an authorized user of the card in question. Our team will seek to validate the transaction and determine if you're authorized to use the billing method. However, It looks like you've removed the billing method you're referring to. Please check this help article to learn more about managing your billing methods best.
Thanks for the help. I have checked help article my case is different. I can add that billing method again. What should be my next step. Should I provide identity of Card Holder which I can? I can not add the billing method again as my profile is in review.
Will upwork block my account? and what if my colleague is aslo using his card on his upwork profile as well? Will it effect his account?
I am new to this platform.
Can someone please share how to create request to customer. As I am totally blank. The chat-bot doesn't have enough information.
Lets say, If i did something wrong, what will be the out-come?
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, Shaheryar. If this concerns your original post, you can re-add the billing method if you wish. Note that you may need to verify the account holder's identity to be able to use it. If anything else needs to be done, or if any flags are raised on our end, the relevant team will notify you and let you know the next steps you need to take.

Hello everyone, I've just made an account on Upwork. I was trying to buy some connects through my Fiancé's debit card and my account is now asking for ID verification under his name. I tried uploading his ID Card but it's not is English so it didn't get approve. I tried uploading my ID card as well since it's in english and the upwork account is on my name but the platform is asking to verify it account under my fiance's name. I would like to get it verify using my id card. I tried using the chat support but it was so fustratiing and it didn't help nor connect me to any live agent. I also wasted hours on this forum trying to find a way to raise a support ticket but nothing works.
Thank you for reaching out to us. I understand your concern about the country you are trying to select not being on the list. Allow me to shed some light on this to help you out.
Currently, this is by design; Kosovo is not available on the list of countries a user can select because our payment partners don't have options to process payments and disbursements in that country. We are unable to add the country to the list yet.
Rest assured that this concern has already been raised to our Teams, though we do not have an exact ETA or update as to when this will be added to the list; hopefully, in the near future, you will be able to as we are constantly evaluating our ability to extend our service to additional locations. As a workaround, you may choose another (whatever is near your country.)
I recently submitted documents for identity verification for my Upwork request. However, I did not pass the verification process because Upwork does not support documents issued by MonoBank. I am from Ukraine
I plan to send my Privatbank statement instead. Could you please confirm if Upwork accepts this statement as a valid document for verification?
Looking forward to your prompt response.
Thank you in advance

Does it mean that I can send proposals and meanwhile work regularly some job on the Upwork, regardless I have not passed yet ID verification process?
I submitted my ID verification details by the due date and was approved, yet all of my proposals were withdrawn. What can I do to get the proposals reinstated or the credits returned?
