I just recently post a job and when I decided to award my job to my freelancer, I checked the billings method, unfortunatly there is no way to pay my freelancer from my freelancer account.
In elance this option was available but here this billings method is not available.
I think this should work also on upwork.
I am from pakisatn here paypal not working so i use my visa card which is costly to me because of currency change and each time I need to call my bank for internet session, in that case my bank also charged me each time.

So its mean on elance there was no security check?
Elance is gone. On Upwork, you can not, and will not be able to, pay your freelancers with your Upwork balance. The end.
Elance is gone we know that but upwork is due to elance remember that, and things are changing for Improvement not for deterioration.
Its not the end its just the start.
Upwork is not "due to" Elance.
Upwork have stated multiple times that for both safety and regulatory reasons, freelancer and client financial accounts are completely separate. This is not just a "feature" they could choose to bring back. It's a significant change to their financial setup and they are legally restricted from doing so.
