Welcome to oDesk, Sergio, and congratulations on finishing your first job! Once you have the funds available on your oDesk account, you can withdraw them to your payment method. You can use PayPal and then simply transfer the money from PayPal to your bank account. You can check other payment methods available in your country as well. Check these help articles for more information: Earnings and Getting Paid in the Philippines.

Hi..

I'm new in Odesk too, now I'm still waiting for the result of my client to review my 1st milestone. As Sergio, lately I opened a new account of payoneer. They said that my card will be arrive between 6 and 13 of April. Can I get the payment if my card doesn't arrive yet?

Hi Meliza,

 

Once your client reviews and approves your work for the 1st milestone, the funds will become available on your oDesk account. You do not have to withdraw your available balance right away and can keep it on your oDesk account until your Payoneer card arrives.

 

I hope it helps.

Hi Meliza,

 

A little tip: when you go to Reports and then click More Reports and select Transaction History, you should be able to see the date when you pending funds become available on your oDesk account. I hiope this information helps.

Was it an hourly job or a fixed price job?

Congrats with completing your first job, Hayley!

 

It looks like the payment for your fixed-price job is currently pending because of the standard six-day security period. If you go to your Reports and then click on the Pending tab, you will be able to see the date when your earnings will become available for withdrawing.

 

I hope it helps!
