Non US citizen transferring funds to a friend's US Bank account

Hey so I have been working on upwork for a while and I always deposited my earnings to my local bank account. I was wondering if it'd be ok for once to transfer some of my money to a US bank account. The US bank account belongs to my friend though and I am not the owner of it and nor am I a citizen of the US. Would that be an issue? Would I be violating any TOS by doing so?

The transfer would be denied as you are not the owner.

Transfer fund to your won account

You CAN transfer money from your Upwork account to a friend's US bank account.


All you need to do is work with your friend and his bank to add you as a fully named beneficiary on the bank account.


Then add that bank account as a payment withdrawal method within Upwork.


This works, and does not violate any Upwork rules.
