Can I delay a wire payment?

Hello!

At this moment I don't have a bank account to receive payment. I must mention that I can only receive payment on my bank account and there are no other available ways.

 

So the question is can I start a project, finish it and receive a wire transfer payment later in 1-2 month. During this time received funds are to stay somewhere on Upwork Escrow account or smth like this.

Is it allowed and possible? Or I must start project only after I have a valid bank account.

Thank you!

Best regards, Vital

You can work and earn money without a valid payment withdrawal method.

 

You can have money in your Upwork account for 90 days before it needs to go somewhere... either to your withdrawal account or back to its source.

 It is 180 days, not 90.

It's important correction. Thank you, Petra!

Hi Vital,

 

Please add a valid payment method as soon as possible in order to avoid any account issues down the road. Once you have added a payment option, you can go to your Get Paid page and set the automatic payment schedule to receive quarterly payment. That means that every 90 days your account balance will be sent to your primary payment method. This payment schedule exists because Upwork has to abide by government regulations and users can't keep their funds in their Upwork account indefinitely.
