How to delete an Elance account?

Let’s say that you don’t need a freelancer anymore and you want to remove your Elance profile. In that case, I can tell you that the Membership button to close your account is gone and doesn’t exist anymore.

I’ll show you what you need to do to close your account permanently the right way on a desktop computer:

 1  After reading Elance’s privacy policy…

I discovered that an account can only be removed upon request. Or as it is mentionned in Elance’s privacy policy: “To terminate your membership, contact Customer Support”. (source:

In that same privacy policy their email address is mentionned: support(at) So that’s the email address we need to send our request to.

 2  Go to your email

and compose an email that requests a removal of your account. That email could be looking like this:

To: support(at)

Subject: Closure of my Elance account

I want to request a removal of my account on your website.

Thanks in advance to confirm me the removal of my account

[Your name]
