Hi Kenan,

 

Welcome to Upwork! In order to add Paypal as your billing method go to the Accounts menu > Settings > Billing Methods, and click the Add Billing Method button. For further information please read this help article. Meanwhile, please go through this Help Article and find out how to make an offer to hire a Freelancer. You can post a job, verify your payment method, review proposals you receive, send an offer and hire a freelancer to complete this work for you, and process the payment as explained here. I'd also strongly advise you to review the client resources we shared here. Let us know if you have any questions or need further assistance. Thank you!

I am new to Upwork, I want to post new job and hire someone here.

I am visiting the Billing Method tab in Settings, but I see the Credit Card only. I am wondering how to add Paypal as payment method.

 

Isn't Paypal supported in Upwork? Or do I have to do this somewhere else?

Hi Kenan,

 

After verifying your Paypal account go to Settings > Billing Methods > Add Billing Method and set up PayPal as your payment method, Paypal select option is at the bottom of the selection screen. Just to clarify, you won't be able to add a PayPal account as a payment method if PayPal email is different from the email registered with the Upwork account.

 

Let us know if you need further assistance, and please read this and this article for more information regarding using Paypal as the payment method.

Kenan, the real problem is probably that you are currently physically located in one of the countries Upwork does not support PayPal as a billing method from.

Hi Kenan,

 

Unfortunately, PayPal isn't available as a billing option in some countries. Please, add an alternative payment method, such as credit card. Thank you!
