Hi, I have a foreign currency account in Pakistan. How can I register that account with Upwork, so that I receive my payment in dollars here in Pakistan?
You'd have to use wire transfer, which costs $ 30 per withdrawal, so it's not worth your while to withdraw small amounts that way.
You can't withdraw in Dollars to a "direct to local bank" account as that is only for local currency. Otherwise you'd suffer currency losses twice (both ends)
Hi Syed Kashif A,
Though you have a foreign currency account, what if that costs a lot to you. Better, use the same method as all on the Upwork platform.
All the best.
Today, the interbank conversion rate from the US dollar to Pakistani Rupees is 164 whereas Upwork shows Rs 158.10. That is why I want to get the amount in US dollars.
