Direct to Local Bank

Direct to Local Bank lets you withdraw your earnings from Upwork directly to your bank account, in your local currency. Like a global version of direct deposit. It can be the fastest and least expensive payment method for many. 

To add a local bank account:

  1. Go to the Accounts menu > Settings > Get Paid
  2. Click Add Method
  3. Click the Set Up button for your chosen method
  4. Enter your bank account details including bank codes
  5. Choose a payment schedule and click Next

For security reasons, your new payment method will become active in three days.

It's essential that you enter your bank information correctly. Any errors could result in a failed transfer or delay. Contact your bank if you're not sure you have the correct information or if you received an error when you tried to enter it in our system. Upwork charges $0.99 per withdrawal Direct to Local Bank. Timing and fees vary depending on your bank.

      Your ticket number is XXXXXXXXX
      We will email you as soon as we can.

      Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

      This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

      For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

      We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.

      If all of our agents are busy when you attempt to chat, please hold, and one of our agents will be with you shortly.
