UPWORK is a great stage for freelance workers. You just need to register and have your account verified, and you can contact potential clients after. Payments are good since this will be managed by the system as well. There is a fee but its a small price to pay. The potential of income depends on the dedication you put in to looking for a job.

Hands down! you can never go wrong with Upwork, my experience working on Upwork has informed my opinion that this platform triumphs over others. The processes of registration, verification, and payments are all handled professionally.

But it isnt as good as it used to be thats for sure
I sympathize with you bro, because I'm sure It's nothing like it once was. I got sick of people from Bangladesh scraping my entire persona and gigs, and then offering a counterfeit version of my services for a fraction of my already competitive rate. It was like a wave that engulfed and washed so many of us out.

I had some problems with Upwork myself. Almost got scammed. "If it seems too good to be true it probably is" haha, I live by that quote now. I used Upwork later, and there are a great number of superb freelancers there also.
