Hello, So recently I have added the Upwork to Local Bank Wire Transfer as a payment method. Now, as per Upwork's policy, the name on my bank account has to match with the name I have put on Upwork. The problem is, My bank account uses only the initial of my last name and my profile has the entire last name. Will there be any problem during wire transfer due to this? The setting says it is a mismatch when I know it is my account.

If it is showing "mismatch" then you won't be able to withdraw money as the payment method would be inactive.

Hi Bharadwaj, 


I checked and it looks like your bank account name has already been approved and will be active after 3 days. Thanks!
