Loking forward for your reply.
Hi Veeresh Y,
I was facing the same problem from the past few months. There is a solution to your problem.
You can upload your Name Proof to upwork for consideration. They will take it seriously and change your name as soon as possible on upwork.
If your city bank has Name like "Surname" and then the last name is "Name" then upload your bank passbook firstpage as a name proof for consideration. I think they would sort out your problem as soon as possible.
Thanks and regards
hey, I am new to odesk and got my first project. I gave Hdfc as my account for money transfer. Please let me know if Hdfc a/c is ok or shall I use state bank of hyderabad account, as I also have that account.
which bank's transfer rate's are low. Please help.
I opted for local funds transfer.
I am also using hdfc account for local funds transfer and there are no issues with that. The transfer rates are not effected too much by what bank you are using as odesk have standard policy for all local fund transfers. but mostly depend on the forex exchange rates.
Hi Nori S,
Congrats on getting your first project. It doesn't matter whatever bank you are using for transaction. What matter is the Name on upwork platform matches with your Bank account. If you have opted for local fund transfer then there is fee of 1.99$ per withdrawl.
There is no bank charge. Bank can't charge single penny on the amount upwork sends to you after deducted this (1.99$ per withdrawl+10% fee of upwork).
I got my HDFC debit visa card, but its not letting me pay my 10$ upgrade fee.
I signed through paypal as well, with same debit card details, but its still no good...
I dont have any credit card though...
