I would like to ask if it is possible to get hired, work, and get paid (just have the amount temporary stored on Upwork) even without setting up a billing method. As of this writing, my application for a debit card is still being processed, ETA would be around 1-3 weeks as advised by the bank. I am currently hesitant to apply for work because of this. If I wait for the debit card and apply for job postings by then, given the hiring rate for newbies, it might take me another 1-3 weeks to get hired.
Please help me shed light to this matter.

Welcome to UpWork. You can apply for jobs, get hired and get payed even if you don’t have your payment methods worked out. UpWork is able to keep up to $1000 on your profile, so I believe you have enough time to get your debit card.
Eddited to add: Seems like Preston was faster with his reply
Preston and Aleksandra already responded, so I'll just confirm that you can start working without a withdrawal method in place, but need to add one as soon as possible.
