Do I need this W-8BEN to accept payment? My client is having issues paying me.

I am new here on Upwork. I requested that payment be sent to directly to my bank account but it has been inactive for some days now. 

Client wants to release payment but finding it difficult too.

My account is asking me for W-8BEN i.e.  W8BEN Foreign Status Certification

What can I do to solve this problem?

Thank you.

 Go to your settings, then cick on Tax Info and complete the W8BEN.

 Yes. So go to your settings, then cick on Tax Info and complete the W8BEN.

It is specifically for everyone, in every country, except for the USA.

You can never access any funds unless you do it.
