I am from India and I used to work on Elance and now in Upwork. I have query about withdrawing funds from Upwork:
1. Can any one tell about the charges using Payoneer for withdrawing money in India? I have talked with Payoneer customer support and they said there is ony 2% charge including currency conversion and any other fees. But I am not confident with their answer as I was using PayPal and PayPal charged me around 4.5% extra for receiving payment from Upwork because Upwork is sending individual payment instead of Mass payment (i.e, sending money to more than 1 person). So if anyone has used Payoneer, can you tell me surely about all the charges from them?
2. Is there any way that I can use different name for LFT transaction? I really need to use different name, please help me if any one can.
Thank you in advance.
I'm sure other users from India will follow up on your first question soon, but I can help you with the second one. Please see my reply just above your comment and note that you can only use a payment method in your own name, which has to match your account name.
Hello My dear Indian friends,
Something about me:
88% job success rate--> Earned more than 1000$ on upwork--> Want to make it as full time job platform.
India is great and I am proud to be an indian. Upwork is the best platform for me to show my skills and use it in purposeful manner. Ok, Now comes to point.
In Previous month I have job success rate of 97%. I was doing my job full time to become a top rated freelancer. I was lacking behind in earning only. But very bad thing happens to me....
Upwork downs my job success rate to 88% from 97% due to my client mistake. (My cliend sends me spammy content to rewrite.) When I revoke the project, The next month my feedback downs to 88%.
It's not justified. I had to pay for my client mistake.
So, My indian friends. Takes client seriouslly. Check their rating and the comments of freelancers before moving forward.
Your's lovely friend
