Does the error have anything to do with the country my paypal account has
been registered with

I use Paypal as my payment method, however, it has been deactivated because it is set as Mandarin, and the upwork system says: "the beneficiary name on your payment method does not match the name on your Upwork account".
My Paypal is using the same name as my Taiwan bank account name. Can Upwork solve this? Because it's exactly the same pronunciation but in two different languages.
Thank you.

I'm having troubles with my payment method, I't seems like the names doesn't match but I don't know if the mistake is from my Upwork account or my Paypal Account. Can I check my verified name some way?

My Paypal verification has failed the reason being that the names do not match.

Where can I contact with this problem? My name on paypal is the same name as on upwork just in a different language.
