    You do realise dont you Sarah that the main purpose of encouraging everybody to get endorsements from all and sundry is so that pph can add more people to their spamming list oops sorry I mean their mailing list?

    fill out a form with their name, company name (optional), email address and relationship to the person they are endorsing (that way Buyers on PPH can see if all your endorsements are from family, or if they are actually from clients/colleagues).

    Given that I could easily create myself fifty endorsements (I haven't), it's unlikely that everyone is going to truthfully fill in such a form, so it's value is useless, as is the system itself.

    Getting an endorsement from an existing client is tantamount to giving them the business cards of all your rivals on PPH.

    How can endorsements from friends and family be valid in a professional capacity? Friends and family are hardly unbiased.

    I am also very confused regarding this Endorsements. In my opinion feedback and endorsements should be left by clients after completing a project. I confront this days with few endorsements left by PPH freelancers which I do not know, I never worked or spoke with them, they left me endorsement and I suppose they expect I should endorse them, too. But how can I recommend someone without knowing his/her professional level? One of the freelancer who endorsed me has no winning job on PPH, he has lot of endorsements and he is on Level 3, unfair I would say when he has no winning job. I do not say that it is wrong for friends or PPH freelancers to give endorsements, it's just I do not think they reflect someone's  professional level if they are left by friends or other freelancers.

    Copy-paste of my message from similar topic:

    Yes, that's actually becomes into a problem.

    More and more people endorsed me. And I even don't know who they are.

    Not so long ago a person from Bangladesh endorsed me and I've decided to check his profile.

    And do you know what? He have 0 (zero) awarded job, 0 (zero) rating/feedback but his CERT level is 4!

    And he have a 270 endorsement at same time.

    So now current system of endorsements totally compromised and using as a cheat to create rating from air.

    PPH is sending out endorsement requests to all my contacts repeatedly. I am probably going to leave PPH if this continues. There should also be a customer service email address to contact if problems like this occurs.

    Beside those people who endorsed me for nothing , since i never talk to them, no contact at all, some of them even mistyped my name horrifically,  now i got job invitation, but actually, it is an endorsement request.

    Great!!

    My clients HATE endorsing me

    Then tell them not to. Endorsements have no real value.

    I have people who endorse me and there endorsements never show up. Because when they are made to log in facebook brings them sign up page then they have sign up then go back to endorse.... To confusing from some people.
