I use UnionBank Eon debit card. Process money on Wendesday and able to withdraw by Thursday night. Never had issues using UnionBank. I have several friends using BDO and BPI.

Yup. Most banks are accepted. I Googled for the BRSTN code when I setup mine years ago.

Hi There, For me Unionbank EON is one of the most widely used form of getting their payments thru Upwork. But I am using BPI Saving Peso account right now. Since the oDesk days, BPI and oDesk have their mutual agreement that is why I don't get a service charge whenever I withdraw from Upwork every Wednesday 8am Philippine Time. Usually when I process my withdrawal thru Upwork every Wednesday 8am Phil Time, It gets posted every Friday 5-6am. Hope this helps

The best method for me is bank transfer via BPI or BDO. There are no fees except for the withdrawal fee from Upwork.

Hi Biboy,

 

You need to use a proper bank acccount, since you can't withdraw to a credit card. You can find more information in this Help article.
