Transfer money from Individual account to Agency account




We are using a profile for sometime which started off as an individual profile nurtured and handled by a single person under our tutelage, the said person has since then left the company and moved on, so another resource was attached to the profile. We were getting payments into our paypal account from the get go, but with the change of policies by Upwork, the name of the paypal account should match the profile name, so we have a lot of money stuck in this profile that can't be retreived as there is no payment method attached to it, please advise a course of action. The profile is now attached to our agency.

Hi Taruna,


All agency contracts are paid to the agency's account. For more information about agency finances, you can check out this help article. To set up payment to your bank or payment account, you must be listed as an account holder or authorized signer on that account, or demonstrate that you are authorized by the business to do so. The listed name on the account must match your verified name on Upwork. For more information about this and what to do if the names don't match, you can refer to this help article.


Additionally, one of our team members will reach out to you directly via a support ticket to assist you further.

Thank you.
