Do clients have to submit a payment method before hiring?

For hourly jobs, do clients have to submit a payment before they post a job or hire? Is that payment method verified? If the client then changes the payment method, do that have to go through the verification process again?

 

For fixed price jobs, clients have to put money in escrow, thereby kind of assuring the freelancer of getting paid. I am just wondering how it works with hourly jobs.
