I want to change my verified name on Upwork from "Mohammed Al-badri qabbari" to "mohammed qabbari" because there is a problem in adding PayPal payment method. My name on PayPal is "mohammed qabbari"
Please help!

Hi Mohammed,

 

Please allow 72 hours for the review on your new payment method to be completed. I would also like to clarify that your Upwork name needs to be your full legal name. 
If you would like to update your name, you will need to go to Settings > Contact Info > and simply update your name. Thank you.

I added the payment method and waited the review many times. The name of Upwork mismatch with the name of paypal.

I changed my name from "Maleeha Imtiaz Khan" to "Maleeha Imtiaz" because the latter was the same as my NIC as well as my bank accout. How long will it take to change as I would not be able to use my payment account otherwise?

Hi Maleeha,


Please keep in mind that your Upwork name needs to be your full legal name. Regarding your payment method, you will need to fill out your W-8BEN form in order to be able to use it. 
If you would like to submit a name change request, go to Settings > Contact Info. Once you've submitted your request it can take up to 3 days for the review to be completed. Thank you.

I re-changed it to my full legal name. It's just asking me to wait for the
verification.
