Can two freelancers share the same payment method?

Hi!

I have a quick question: can two freelancers share the same payment method?

My younger brother and I are both freelancers on this platform. He made a good amount of money, but we're having problems withdrawing it. He is too young (19) to have a credit card in my country (I know, it's stupid.)

My question here is can I use my credit card, which I am using in MY account, to withdraw his earnings for him? Or will that get us both suspended?

No. Your brother's withdrawal method has to be his and in his own name.

 

Actually, there is a way: You'd have to create an agency ($ 20 per month) and add your brother to that. Then any future jobs he is hired for through the agency would be paid to the agency.

 

However, that does not help with the earnings he already has on his Upwork account. Also bear in mind that they can only be kept on Upwork for a maximum of 190 days.
