99 cents for LFT. And you get NGN equivalent at prevailing exchange rate.

Hi Oreofe, I was reading through the conversations so I wanted to ask, I'm using an Ecobank which is nit Domiciliary, and I just sent funds into it. I've been charged $0.99 and I've been sent a mail that the transaction is being processed. What I wanna know is how long does it take to actually reflect into my account in Nigeria and do you have an idea how much incoming fee is on a savings account in Nigeria? Thanks in advance

All things considered, you should get the fund in your account between 30
minutes or 1 hour max. I don't think Ecobank should charge COT for a
savings account. However if the withdrawal is to a dollar domiciliary
account, it takes 2 to 3 days to get the funds in your account with a
minute COT for every withdrawal you make on same.

Welcome to upwork. You can cash out directly to your local bank account. Go to setting> click get paid> click withdraw to local bank> add your bank swift code( either you go to your bank for this or source for the code online) > add your bank details.
It will show inactive till you get a notification to confirm your details which should be the same as that of up work( its better that way so that your payment won't be delayed).

The last I can remember is that GTB charged me 0.5% of the amount I withdrew. It was one of the best options available I could use anyway

Hello Oreofe, I'm new to upwork, I just joined today. I'm trying to wrap my head around a lot of things. Like why does the page keep refreshing when I click on "Submit a proposal"? Was my profile rejected? I basically need some putting through. Could you help?
