I am very confused with your payments. I am located in the USA, so my bank account is also located in the USA. The client I am looking to hire is located outside the USA.
I am wondering, will I pay directly to Upwork or will I pay directly to the freelancer?
If I pay through Paypal from the USA, my freelancer is located outside of the USA, does it count as an international payment yet? Or does the payment go to Upwork first?
If I am located in the USA, can I use the "Direct bank deposit option"?
Also, I read that you need to have already paid $1000 previously, but I am planning on paying my client over that amount total from our On Going Project.
Thank you and please let me know as soon as possible!
Please note that all payments should be made through Upwork. Before you hire a freelancer, you must add a payment method on your Upwork account.
