Hi all, fellow EU freelancers
Usually how do you withdraw your funds?
Direct to Local Bank in Euros or Direct to U.S. Bank in US Dollars using Transferwise (which has a ery convenient exchange rate?
I was wondering what's the best way to not lose too much with exchange fees, but I can't find informations about Upwork exchange fee when sending payments in Euros...
Thanks in advance,
I am sure that you have decided cince your last message. I would be happy to know what your decision was at the end.
I have a conversation with the Upwork help center to find out what the the fees of 'Direct to your Local Bank' has (I live in Hungary), but they do not answer my questions directly. We are now at 6 rounds of questions and answers, they always answer something, but newer directly what I ask. (At the end I started to sen dhtem questions to be answered with YES or NO and they do not asnwer them so.)
I am considering now to withdraw my money to Europe using the payment method 'Wire Transfer" to my bank account which is 30 USD, but seem to be cheaper than using the conversion rate of Upwork's ban if I do it in every 3 months. (My bank account in Hungary is however in USD.)
Yes I don't know exact conversion rates, but reading other freelancers posts in this issue, I estimate it around 4-5 percent. Here is on of these posts: https://community.upwork.com/t5/Freelancers/Upwork-disables-TransferWise-Borderless/td-p/571184
