Have you tried the international wire transfer method, Ebunoluwa?  It looks like payoneer can also be an alternative payment method.  I got this info from this thread: https://community.upwork.com/t5/Freelancers/How-do-you-get-paid-in-Nigeria-Paypal-does-not-work-for/...

Hello Ebunoluwa,

 

I once added my GTB account and after 3 business days I was able to payout into the account. But after I did that I couldn't payout into my GTB again. I got "Your local bank does not support... error message". So I added my Unity bank and once again after 3 business days, I did payout and was credited under 3 hours. I hope I don't get the same error message on my next payout to my Unity bank.

 

But if the same 2nd payout error keeps coming, I would keep adding different banks.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Best Regards,

Akinbode A.

 I can now say boldly Unity Bank works fine. Made my second payment and got credited in less than 3 hours without any extra charges.

LFT seems to be is improving ! The last transaction I did (LFT - Zenith) was processed within 2 hours. Kudos to the support team who helped out when I had issues with this some few weeks ago.

I've always withdrawn to Diamond Bank. Previously it would take about 18 hours, but now takes 20 minutes. Last withdrawal I made took just about 10 minutes actually.

Hi Ebun,

 

Gtbank also works fine. My payment was processed within 2 hours at no extra cost! The collaboration between Upwork and Transfast is a brilliant and welcomed idea. Mighty thanks to the Upwork team! Cat Very HappySmiley Happy
