Hiring someone and paying them in dollars

Hi I'm from England and my account is in sterling £'s. Can I pay my client, in £ instead of $'s. The client wants to be paid in pounds and I'm not sure even if I can pay them since my money is in pounds but the hiring option doesn't allow you to pay in pounds but dollars. Does it exchange the money from pounds to dollars automatically when I hire them and pay them?

Hi Da,


Prices on Upwork are always in U.S. Dollars (USD) and your freelancer will receive U.S. Dollars as payment. Only the billing to your card may be converted to your local currency if that's the option you are using. Feel free to check out this help article for more information.


Thank you.
