Create another account or switch account type

Can I have another freelancer account?

No, you can't have two separate freelancer accounts. The Upwork Terms of Service allow only one account per person. You can't create multiple accounts to sell different services, to work under different names (you always need to use your own real name), or for any other reason.

However, we're working on specialized profiles to allow you to better highlight your different talents. This feature (still in testing, currently only available in the mobile development category) lets you add another “profile” as part of the same account. You’ll be notified when the program expands to your current profile’s listed skills/categories.

What about different types of accounts?

You can still only have one account on Upwork, but you can use that same account as a freelancer, client, and agency. This will create different entities within the account that you can switch between and each will have their own history and separate financials.
