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?
