I joined since when it was Odesk but never took it serious as I have a fulltime job, but I realized I wasn't getting jobs till i discovered my profile was on private, to be sincerce I haven't really had much issues, I've only gotten 1 Client after setting my profile to public, because of fulltime job i tend to take few works from Upwork but i haven't experienced being rejected because of my nationaility. In my proposals (Programming) I often explain what they need and sometimes let them know how to go about it incase am not taken or a better solution, the client I worked with said that was what led him to pick me, as other were busy bidding i simply explained how to go about it and a better option.
Hope this helps, and no my earnings are not much
Please, I have been trying to setup my payment method. The challenge I am have is that the swift code I received from my bank is 9digit code but up work requires 8digits.
Please how do I go about this because the two banks I am using gave me 9digits respectively.
Thanks in advance.
You don't need to go to your bank to collect swift code. Just use google to search it. Search "your bank name" swift code(For example GTB swift code, you get GTBINGLA). I guess the one given to you in your bank was for that branch and not for the main branch, that is why it is have an extra letter to show the state.
I hope this helps.
For direct to a local bank account, what's the exchange rate? Is it the prevalent rate or is it the rates that Payoneer charges when withdrawals are made at the ATM?
Pls, if there's any way you can help, come to my rescue.
