I read somewhere in the Community that payment for freelancers can no longer be made using clients' funds on account with oDesk; however, I lost track of the timeline with so many chages going on here on oDesk.

 

Question: When paying freelancers, can clients pay using their funds on account with oDesk?

Hi Ron - no, they can't. The financial accounts have been separated pre merger, circa Q3 2013. One work around to this is to send your freelancer funds to your PayPal account, and chose PayPal as your preferred billing method on your client account.

Yea, it seems that Upwork is intent on making money in every way possible. This way, you'd have to pay $1 to transfer to Paypal and then transfer back to Upwork and it's a hassle. What doesn't make sense to me is that why are there so many things that are a step back from Elance's modus operandi!
