I am getting the same the same issue now. ''Your payment via direct to local bank transfer account failed and the money has been credited back to your account.'' It does not work when I re-enable it.
Can I get assistance?
HI everyone, I am experimenting exactly the same issue, payment method was working normally for a long time, and it just stopped working, payment method was disabled automatically, when I reenable it and try to get paid it disables again, and receive an error.
I'm having the same issue, please help me to solve this. Upwork disabled my payoneer. since I'm from Kosovo and my Country is not listed yet at UpWork, there is no other chance for me to withdrawal my money.
Seems like clearing the cookies and the session storage from the browser makes the trick. I was having the same issue and after clearing Upwork's data in Chrome and making a hard-refresh, my payment method stopped to be disabled and I was able to send the funds to my bank account.
You may also try to get your funds by opening an incognito window in your browser.
