Verify Your Credit Card on Freelancer

If you regularly outsource jobs that involve skills like graphic design, copywriting, data entry, or the more technical coding, programming, and designing CSS, then you must have contracted a freelancer through at some point. A treasure trove of skilled professionals, the website is a giant in the industry with millions of PHP developers, graphic artists, web designers, and content writers under its wing. When potential freelancers look at jobs you post, seeing a verified credit card on your account goes a long way in making them feel more comfortable and at ease working for you. To verify your account, you just need to go through some account settings.


Accessing Your Account Settings

  1. Go to the Freelancer website. Open your favorite browser, type into the address bar, and press Enter.
  2. Log into your account. Once you're on the main page, enter your email address and your password into the appropriate text boxes found at the right side of the screen. Afterwards, click on the login button right below the password box.
  3. Navigate to Settings. Once you're signed in, look for Profile tab on the black bar at the top of the screen. Let your mouse hover over it, and a drop-down menu will then appear. Click on Settings from the list.
  4. Select “Account Settings. Once your Freelancer Settings page loads on the screen, you will notice in the middle of the page three options, the middle one being Account Settings. Click on this to expand it and display its items.

Verifying Your Credit Card

  1. Look for the “Verify now” button. On the next page, scroll down until you see the subheading “Credit Card Authorized Payments.” Directly below that is the green “Verify now” button, which you must click on to load the next page.
  2. Look for the “Add your credit card” button. Scroll down towards the bottom of the page until you see a list of all of the major credit card providers, with the green “Add credit card” button below. Click on the button.
  3. Select your card type. Clicking on the “Add credit card” button will display two questions about your credit card. The first one is your card type, which is set to Visa by default, and which you must select from the drop-down menu.
  4. Pick the country from which the money will come. Select your country from the drop-down menu as well. The default is set to the United States.
  5. Click on the green “Continue” button. It will be right below the two questions mentioned earlier. The next page will then load.
  6. Enter your card number. On the next page, the first text box is labelled “Card No” which pertains to the number on the front of your card. Click inside the box and type in your credit card number.
  7. Indicate your card's expiration date. You'll find your card's expiration date just below the card number. Use the drop-down menus to indicate your card's expiration month and year.
  8. Enter your card's security code. Right below where you indicated your card's expiration date is the Security Code box. Type into it your card's three-digit security code.
    • The security code is found at the back of your card, towards the right. Look for three digits!
  9. Click on the “Continue” button. It's the blue button at the bottom of the screen, and it's the final step. Once you click on the button, your account will now indicate that your credit card has been fully verified.
