PayPal service is one of the approved payment methods on the Upwork platform. To use PayPal, you must make sure that your verified name on Upwork matches the name on your PayPal account. If you haven't verified your name yet, be sure that your profile name matches the name on your PayPal account.

Your PayPal account details on Upwork cannot be edited. If your PayPal account has changed, you must add a new payment method and ensure your details on Upwork match your PayPal account information. Don't forget to remove the old payment method at that time, too.
