I just hired a freelancer for a flat rate of $250 CAD.  My credit card show $356.  Why is that?

All Upwork projects are listed in U.S. dollars only, so if you hired somebody for $250, then $356 Canadian sounds about right.

Hi Radhika, 

I would like to confirm what Christine has shared. All currencies on Upwork are in USD. However, Upwork will default to charging Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit and debit cards in local currency for clients billing addresses or issuing banks in your country.

If you want to view your local currency, and USD charge, you may follow the steps below: 

  1. Go to the Reports  Transactions
  2. Click the Ref ID number for the charge you want to view
  3. Click View Invoice to see the amount sent to your freelancer (in USD) and the amount charged to your card (in your local currency)

You may learn more about it here.
