I just transfered money from my bank account into my PayPal account.
Now I am trying to transfer my PayPal account money into Upwork to start a contract but it only gives me the option to use PayPal and choose one of my debit cards?
Living abroad now and my UK cards have been blocked for online use, so if can't solve will have to work with them away from Upwork.
You can use your PayPal account to pay freelancers on Upwork as long as it's verified. In this case, you may need to add an alternative payment method to your PayPal wallet in order to add your PayPal account as a payment method on Upwork.
