Hi Hamza,

 

Difference in exchange rates is not something Upwork can control. When a bank converts a transaction, they will mark up the interbank rate to buy or sell a currency. Online calculators will not take into consideration the mark up that is applied. Since rates constantly change throughout any given day, the rate you received is the rate offered by our bank at the time your specific transaction was processed. Thank you.

Of course it works that way, but you can obviously not know if the exchange rate will get better or worse- What if the exchange rate is 150PKR today, and only 148PKR when you really need to withdraw?

 

I would suggest you just withdraw. Unless you withdraw huge amounts at a time, the exchange rate difference over a few days makes little difference.
