Just made a deposit in escrow for my first contract. My billing settings are set to AUD and I discussed with the freelancer clearly that the job rate was in Australian Dollars too. However when I made the deposit it appears to be in USD. Does anyone know where I can find out more information on the currency of contract payments?
Prices on Upwork are always in USD and your freelancer will receive U.S. Dollars as payment. Only the billing to your card will be converted to your local currency. You may opt out if you prefer to pay in USD at any time. Thank you.
