After being in touch with Uphold support on daily basis for 2 weeks, their last reply is “Having checked your Uphold account, I can see your account is fully verified and in good standing and is not causing the issue in this case.” and that I should contact Brave support.
Since that’s what I did the first time around and that it was Brave support that pointed me to Uphold support, due to this problem going on for too long (2 months) after 2 years I’m forced to stop using Brave.
Might pick it up in future and see if things have changed for the better.
That wasn’t the problem. Not sure if it’s in how you described it to them or if it’s bad customer service on their part. The issue was you having to make sure your passport/ID was from a different country.
From their perspective, you’ve shared information and they have it. You gave your ID and whatever else, so you’re verified for them. They don’t have a block on Netherlands and most likely no block on whatever country you were in beforehand.
HOWEVER, their API communicates with Brave. It would see whichever country you did submit for KYC and that’s what Brave sees. So I’m not sure which country you were in, but if you haven’t provided Netherlands ID to Uphold and they haven’t updated it to reflect in the API, then you’ll not be able to connect because Brave will see that your Uphold account is tied to whatever country your passport is from.
So in all of that, did you ever submit new documentation or did you just simply ask them if your account was in good standing? Because if didn’t submit new documents, then of course nothing changed and you’re still having issues
I forgot to mention that in my last 2 week correspondence with Uphold support, I explained the problem to them and they sent me new KYC link in which I solely used Dutch (Netherlands) documents.
That’s what they meant in their last message that “Having checked your Uphold account, I can see your account is fully verified and in good standing” but for some reason when I try to connect to it from Brave I’ll still get the same “region not supported” error.
Sometimes needs a bit of time. I’m going to tag @steeven since he was working with your before. I’ll also advise maybe you DM him with the email associated with your Uphold account and maybe your Wallet Payment ID that you can find at brave://rewards-internals
In the past when situation was similar to yours and information was updated, they were able to refresh it and get it working. So hopefully they’ll do the same with yours.
Your country isn’t supported right now. It likely will be added again here by the end of the year, but we are waiting to see what’s happening. (And there’s a lot of articles & posts on this if you would have taken your time to search for answers)
hello good afternoon, I have the same problem, it just started this month, I can’t link my uphold account again since it tells me that the region is not supported, I worked with uphold in brave since I started using brave but now I get this problem… was there any solution?
I have the same problem in the Czech Republic. I can’t connect Uphold since around July. Initially not receiving clarification why. Now it says region not supported. I received last payment in June on Uphold. Brave is still collecting rewards, but I’m not receiving them for the last couple of months.
I’m also getting the same error. I’m from Brazil and since a year I received my BAT normally in my UpHold account, however, now I get the message below…
“Error: Region currently not supported
Your Uphold account can’t be connected to your Brave Rewards profile at this time. Your Uphold account is registered in a country that’s not currently supported for connecting to Brave Rewards.”
Same here (from Belgium). Strangely, the BAT from the Brave Browser installed on my Linux machine is received in my Uphold account, but the BAT from my Brave Browser on my Mac is not. (Reinstalling Brave did not help.)
Hi, I’m also facing the same problem. I’d like to retrieve my BAT rewards from my Brave browser but somehow I’m unable to do that, as apparently there’s some regional issue that I’m facing when trying to transfer the BAT coins to Uphold. So I was wondering, is there any way that I can still transfer the coins to another wallet? If not, is there a way I can get hold of a secret key or something to transfer the coins from one laptop to another?
