Linking a bank account not under my name.

Hello! I'd like to ask for your help regarding linking a bank account to my upwork. I don't have a bank account myself, so I was wondering if it'll be a problem if I link my sisters account to my upwork account instead. Im from the Philippines and the bank is BDO.

You can only link a bank account that is under your name. Even if you are able to add the account, you can't withdraw to an account not under your name.

 

Why not open a bank account? It will only take a couple of hours.

 

BDO only requires 2 IDs. You can schedule an appointment online so you will be prioritized when you go to the bank.

Thank you that helps a lot.

I can't really travel right now due to a leg condition, and I live far away from the city where the only branch of BDO can be found in my province.

But thank you so much!
