Peeps, this is really useful info for others in your country, so I suggest you add an English translation to your posts as they will otherwise be removed by the mods because non-English posts are not allowed, and that would be a shame because others can be helped by them and you would have wasted your time posting. Just click on "Edit Reply"
I also noticed that I can read Spanish now (after years of learning Italian LOL)
José's answer is not updated to the situation today in Argentina. Up to 2015 we couldn´t receive dollars to a bank account but today is possible, in dollars or pesos.
There is no problem today to transfer dollars to a bank account also from Paypal, and the fee is more convenient than transfering it directly from Upwork, mostly if the amounts are not so high.
Were you able to resolve your problem with the bank account?
I am new at upwork and have my account in Santander Rio as well, but I don't know if I should put my bank account or make a paypall account, because of the fees that the bank could charge me. Have you received any payment in your bank account? Did they charge you with a fee because of being a foreign transfer or does it look like if it was a local transfer?
If you could reply to me you would help me a lot,
