It seems that due to corona, Upwork is auto approving pretty much anyone who signs up instantly.

So if you're a newbie looking to learn drop servicing or to sharpen up your own skills and make some side money right now is the time to get into it!

Only tested with a few people so could be a fluke, so reply on how it goes if you decide to sign up!

Would you recommend me starting an agency on there or freelance account? Are you drop servicing like this right now? I'm actually studying graphic design and want to use the client account that I could get using my main email, for when I will freelance for real. If I do drop servicing tough, I might get reviews based on a not so good service and I don't want that to influence my career as an graphic designer.

Thanks for sharing this tip mate, do ou think that upwork just doesn't have enough operators at the desk to check those accounts. I guess those operators could work from home, on their laptop. And can you make multiple freelance accounts using the same email on upwork? (I've heard creating multiple email accounts is not allowed). I don't know about you, but I don't really have any experience with drop shipping or drop servicing and I just want to try servicing and grind it out.

I mean, when I signed up to UpWork before the whole pandemic situation, I was approved instantly. I'm not sure if this was because I am based in the UK or whether I was just lucky.

A friend of mine signed up a few days ago and was approved instantly, so bot sure if it's due to COVID-19 or other factors.

Well probably it's really because of COVID-19. They thought that many people will be looking for another ways to earn, which i guess a win-win for them, yeah.

It is not auto approving accounts, I just tried it.

You can see jobs and everything while your account is being reviewed, but that does not mean your account is auto approved.

I submitted my application again today because of your post and got rejected just a few minutes ago.

And I have vast irl experience working for one of the biggest gaming companies in the world. I also have several years of experience in freelancing, so I am definitely not rejected due to qualifications.

They are just behaving regularly, allowing profiles they need and rejecting profiles they have too much of.

I have just received the answer to my application yesterday:
"...regret to inform you that we are unable to accept your Upwork freelancer registration at this time..."

Thanks man, approved instantly. Thank you.
You have been not approved instantly, read what people are writing here. The fact you have access to the website while waiting for your profile to be reviewed, does not mean you have been approved...

People who got approved, what fields of expertise did you put in your profile?

for now, there is the same banner as before:
"Your profile is under review
You should hear back within 24 hours. You will be able to submit proposals once your profile is approved."
