Yes Debora.

You're right. I also receive directly in u$s from clients outside upwork by means of a corresponsal in USA

http://comex.bancogalicia.com/optimice-su-operatoria/bancos-corresponsales.aspx

 

Because the money goes from the account of my client to the account of the corresponsal in USA (Wells Fargo or others) and the corresponsal sends the money to Banco Galicia with a specified messages.

Then Banco Galicia moves that money to my account.

 

What I couldn't do was to set my Galicia Account in the upwork Payment Method Form. But I could do that for HSBC and for Banco Rio

From Paypal via Nubi you can receive dollars (or pesos) to your bank account.

Hi Jose Alberto, some questions about your message:
How long has been since you last tried direct transfer to santander rio in Argentina?
and how do you set the intermediary bank in the upwork form?, because Santander uses one too
Basically how do you enter all the swifth message information and where because the memo field doesn't accept the length of a swift message.

Regards

Don't use wire transfer. Use PayPal + Nubi.
It's gonna be way cheaper for you.

Mmm I think it depends of the amount in one you are almost paying a fixed rate against the 4% of the total

The only case when PayPal + Nubi isn't the cheapest way, is if you're
receiving less than 17,5 USD vía direct transfer (To Pesos). In all other
cases, it's the best way.

Wire Transfer is actually the worst way. They tax you 30 USD from UpWork +
30 USD in Argentina + taxes in Argentina (About 6 %).

Feel free to try by yourself.

Lets's say 3000 usd
Nubi you get 2854

fee around 4%
Wire transfer you get 2916
fee= 30 + 50 + 0.125%

If you're extracting 3000 USD, you're gonna get $2,856.43 with Nubi,
or $2,760.00 with Wire transfer.

Wire Transfer --> $2,760.00 = (((3000 - 30 from UpWork) - 30 from your
bank) - 3000*0.06 from your bank taxes)
Nubi --> $2,760.00 = (3000-2)-(3000*3.9/100+(3000*3.9/100)*21/100)

Once again, please feel free to try by ourself.
It's going to be good news for everybody if I'm wrong.

Sorry, how are you calculating the bank fees?
Why 3000*0.06  and  30 usd for the bank?
wich bank do you have?

Banco Rio.. 6 months ago

You can ask on upwork chat but when I asked that option it was not available. (intermediary)

Try to ask in Banco Rio Comex.... It can be entered in upwork form... maybe adding or removing zeros

I don't exactly remember it because I don't use it anymore. 

But it can be entered in the fields upwork provides.
