Hi, I'm new to UpWork, and I was wondering: How do you get direct deposits in dollars in Argentina? Only option I can see is pesos.
Wire Transfer not an option? That's in US Dollar but costs $ 30 a pop and isn't worth it for withdrawals under about $ 700.
Local funds transfers are always in local currency as they are sent from a local (hence the name) bank in local (hence the name) currency.
I have the same question as Cristobal and I see that you recommend using Paypal. Can you tell me a bit more? Do you get dollars to your bank account using Paypal? Or do you have a different way to withdraw?
Thanks a lot!
Thank you very much for your help, but I've already found the solution.
I'm simply using PayPal + Nubi. It's extremely cheap and quite fast (1 week).
The path the money is getting through is:
UpWork --> PayPal --> Nubi --> Personal Bank Account (In Argentina).
Total commissions price is:
* 2 USD for widthdrawing to PayPal.
* About 4% to widthdraw from PayPal via Nubi to my Personal Bank Account.
Edit: Nubi changed their commissions. It's even cheaper now, but you have to withdraw 2000 USD from PayPal at a time.
Yes, this is the way!
José, your informatin is not updated. I work here for 8 years and now things are much easier! Since 2015 / 2016 things changed.
Some years ago it was difficult to receive dollars. Now you can receive dollars to your bank account in 5 days via Paypal + Nubi
In fact my account is in Galicia Bank.
Thanks a lot Cristobal.
Some more precisions.
To know if the bank is ready to receive or not it is enough try to set the SWIFT CODE + ACCOUNT NUMBER in the Upowork form. If the upwork form does not recognize it ... the the transfer cannot be done.
I don't remember each bank in Argentina if it is received in dollars or $ .
In my experience.
Banco Rio.... it converts to $ ... as Banco Rio has a unified account number $ + u$s
HSBC : if you want to receive in u$s you should give the CBU of the dollars account
Banco Galicia: It's not available to receive direct transfer (at least last year
BROU . No problem... receive dollars in dollars account
