Sorry about that. But you can't use your debit card.
Upwork needs you to use a regular credit car that isn't a debit card.
When you try to use your debit card, the Upwork system is automatically checking to see if it is a debit card, and it is rejecting it.
Some debit cards may work. Most won't. Regardless of what that form says, Upwork's documentation elsewhere states that some types of cards can't be used.
"Upwork accepts Visa, Mastercard, and American Express cards. Virtual card numbers, gift cards, and Prepaid cards are not accepted."
In India only some debit cards can be used on international websites moreover it needs to be enabled for international use before it can be used on international website.
I do not know about your location, but in case you think this is a possibility in your case ask your bank to issue an international debit card and enable it for use and then try.
