Before purchasing Connects or a membership plan, you’ll need to add a Billing Method to your account. There are three billing methods available to freelancers.
Credit or Debit Card
Upwork accepts Visa, Discover, Diners Club, Diners Club International, Mastercard, and American Express. We do not accept virtual cards or gift cards. To learn more about adding a credit card to your account, click here.
Prepaid cards may be used to purchase Connects, but not membership plans.
If you have sufficient balance available from Upwork earnings, you can use this balance to pay for your membership or purchase additional Connects. If your balance isn't sufficient, we'll charge your chosen billing method.
To remove a billing method:
Note: You can remove billing methods at any time. However, to avoid interruption to your membership plan, you must have at least one billing method available. Before changing or deleting your primary billing method, you must add and set up an alternative payment method.
