I've been an Upwork freelancer for years now and I just posted my first job as a client. Am I wrong in thinking that Upwork doesn't allow its clients to a) pay with Paypal or b) pay with accumulated earnings that have yet to be paid to me as a freelancer. If so, is there a reason this isn't allowed? As a result, I used a credit card to place funds in escrow for this project. Thank you in advance for any useful info you can provide.
1.Upwork does allow clients to add paypal as a payment method.
2.Both Client and Freelancer account are separate entities and it is only apt that the financial accounts of both are kept separate. There may be law at upwork's place of business that restricts it or it may just be the way upwork wants to manage accounting.
