Funded escrow with the wrong account. Withdrew offer and now can't hire freelancer

I made an offer to a freelancer, funded escrow, then realized I used the wrong bank card for the transaction. I don't us Upwork a lot and was mistaken in thinking I would be asked to confirm the account or enter funding source.

 

I had to withdraw the offer (with the hope of having the money refunded to the account). I then returned with the proper card, set as primary, to hire the same freelancer. Because I withdrew the offer, the system marked our interaction as me "declining" him.

 

Is there a way to hire a declined freelancer?

Have you tried going to the freelancer's profile page and clicking "hire me"?

Hi J.C.

 

It looks like you were able to make a new offer to that freelancer. Please, let us know if you have any further questions.
