Hi Md,

 

This can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. To learn more about our accepted billing methods and how to set up one check out this Help Article. Thank you.

Hi Goran,

I am from Bangladesh, Can you please suggest me some payment option or Bank cards from Bangladesh those I can try which will work at Upwork website to buy connect or activate the membership plus plan. I am asking you this again because if I take a credit card from a bank and the card doesn't work at Upwork website then this will be a loss for me.

 

Thanks

Md

Hi Md,

 

Unfortunately I can't advise you about this, feel free to open an account with the bank that best fits your needs. You will need to make sure that your card/account is enabled for international charges.


I hope that other freelancers from your location will see your post and advise you about some of the banks/options they are using. Thank you.

Hi MD, 


When you add a billing method to your account, the available billing methods to you will show on the screen. Billing methods vary, depending on the user's location, in this case, you may want to check which options are available to you. 

We definitely recommend that you use your own debit/credit card when setting up a billing method so that you don't go through any issues with your account. However, as long as you are able to complete the verification for the billing method, the transaction is authorized by the card owner, and you have all info needed to add in the account, this should be okay.

Hi Suvo,

 

I'd like to clarify that some card-issuing banks will restrict the use of debit cards on Upwork due to the payments being classified as 'recurring'. Please, make sure that you are filling all the required fields correctly and that your card-issuing bank allows recurring transactions. Alternatively, you may use any other of the available billing methods.

 

Thank you.
