Instant Pay allows eligible U.S. freelancers to make withdrawals to their bank accounts and receive funds in minutes.

In order to use Instant Pay you must be based in the U.S. and have a Visa or Mastercard debit card linked to your bank account. The maximum amount you can transfer through Instant Pay in one transaction is $2,999.00 USD.

To add Instant Pay for withdrawals

  1. Go to Settings Get Paid
  2. Click Add Method

For security reasons, your new payment method will become active in three days after you confirm the account.

Once your earnings become available you can withdraw your funds using Instant Pay as you do with any other payment method. Upwork charges a $2.00 processing fee per withdrawal for Instant Pay.
