Hi Umer,


In case you're referring to scheduled withdrawals, can you please check if your account balance is equal or greater than the limit set for automatic withdrawals? Also, you can manually initiate withdrawals regardless of the amount and at any time you prefer.

Hi Mahnoor,

I have also done local payment transfer through payoneer but it's been 10 days i'm cluless that on what stage my payment is. I have contacted payoneer and they said, "we have transfered your payment". They also sent me the transaction pdf doc. Now on Pakistani Bank end, they don't know any transaction happened. I'm using Summit Bank. Is it Bank that is making it delay ?

Which bank you prefer to have direct bank transfer ?I'm thinking about HBL or SCB.

Hello Mahnoor

Using Local funds transfer can we get payment directly from upwork to HBL in pakistan? What will be charges for that. Does charges deduction varies from location to location?

Hello everybody !

I'm working on upwork from last year and noticed that Local Bank Transfer is the cheapest method to withdraw your funds. $4.99/withdrawal fee and money will be in your bank within 36 hours of withdrawal.


If someone is suggesting Payoneer then he is wrong becasue Payoneer costs you $29.65 per year as service charges + Upwork to Payoneer Transfer fee + Banks withdrawal = Too Much costly....
