Hello Angelica!

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,

Thank you,

Hi Matias, I received one payment through Santander Rio directly, but unfortunately Upwork converts all payments to Pesos and the exchange rate is not competitive, on top of the bank's commissions. So if you need or want USD you will need to use your PayPal account and link it to a Nubi account to get the dollars, also for a commission. I believe the total cost is lower using PayPal and Nubi.
