Choosing a Custom Payment Schedule?

Hey everyone! I have a quick question about getting paid on UpWork.

When I go into the Payment Schedule in my account settings, I only have the options of Weekly, Bi-Monthly, Monthly, and Quarterly. Due to personal financial reasons, I want to delay any sort of payment until I'm ready to receive it. Is there a way to opt-out of the payment schedule and only get paid manually?


Thanks for your help!

Hi Marcel,


Thanks for this question. Unfortunately, because Upwork is not a bank or payment transfer agency, we cannot maintain balances for more than 180 days, per our Terms of Service.
