I have an emergency and want to withdraw my balance with my friend's local bank account. Is it possible? I want to withdraw through local transfer.

No, you can't (as far as I know). 

 

Why don't you open a real bank account?

It only takes BDT 500 (approx 8 USD) to open a bank account. 

 

You'll get the account details same day and can add it to your UpWork account but, it'll take 3 days to be activated on UpWork. Additionally, it'll take 1-3 business days to process your payment once you've requested withdrawal  (so not appropriate for your emergency). 

 

Through Payoneer usually I got paid within 2 hours.

 

You shouldn't depend online sources for your emergency money.

 Absolutely not.

 

If the name does not match the system will not allow you to set the account up as a withdrawal method, if you set up the bank account with your name and your friend's details the money will not arrive.

 

Why don't you use your own bank account?

Hi Md. M,

 

As others have stated, you need to use a bank account or any other withdrawal method in your own name, in order to add and use it on your Upwork account.

"It's an emergency, I'll be pleased if anyone give me the correct solution."

 

Md. M:

 

Of course I know that YOU'RE not a scammer. But just so you understand something...

 

"It's an emergency" is one of the first phrases they teach you when you go to Scammer School.

 

Upwork does not actually break its own financial security rules to accommodate people's "emergencies."

 

And unless your "emergency" involves the complete dissolution of all financial institutions in your country, I'm pretty sure you can set up a bank account or Skrill account or other financial withdrawal account, and you'll be glad that you did. Then, the next time you have an emergency, you can access your own money on your own, without having to beg your friend to help you.
