Upwork accepts the following billing methods to pay for memberships:
Credit or Debit Card
- Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.
- Credit, debit, and Payoneer cards are all acceptable, as long as they have a sufficient available balance.
- Verified, active PayPal account in good standing. PayPal student accounts are not eligible. The PayPal verification process varies somewhat from country to country. Learn more.
- Because PayPal as a billing method isn't available to all freelancers, the option to use PayPal will only appear in the Add a Billing Method form if it is available to you.
