Billing Methods

You can pay your freelancers in a number of ways, including the following billing methods:

  • Credit card
    • We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
    • We do not accept virtual card numbers, gift cards, and prepaid cards.
    • You may be required to verify the amounts of two small charges to your account.
    • Not all debit cards can be verified. If this is the case with your debit card, connecting your bank account to PayPal may be an option.
  • PayPal
    • A verified PayPal account is required. Additional eligibility rules apply.
    • PayPal verification is immediate upon submitting the registration form.
  • ACH / Bank Account
    • U.S. clients with U.S. bank accounts.
    • Limited availability, by invitation only.

It is best to add more than one billing method to avoid account disruption in case a transaction fails.

Please be aware:

  • If your billing address is in Australia, Canada, Great Britain, or a Eurozone country, we can charge you in your local currency. Otherwise, you will be charged in U.S. Dollars. Contact your credit card company to determine if foreign transaction fees will apply. If eligible, PayPal can perform the exchange for you and charge you in the currency of your account with them.
  • At this time, you cannot pay with Western Union or any other alternative online billing vendors.
