Hi there! I was wondering what is the best way to get paid from Upwork. I hae been using Paypal/Nubi and Local Bank, but I think it has a lot of taxes. I am thinking on create a Payoneer account but, can I retire dolars from the bank with payoneer?

Hi, for what I have research talking with upwork help and Santander Rio is the Account number the one you need to enter for wire transfer in usd.
The only thing I'm not sure about is the swift message.
Have you managed to make a transfer?

To be honest, I don't remember which information is needed to set up the
bank account on Upwork. I think it's the account number. However, you
won't receive any dollars. The bank will automatically change that to
pesos. Receiving dollars is no longer available in our country.

Hi guys! how are you? i write you to ask some information about the monitribute in Argentina, i am from Venezuela and i am trying to keep my work legal in here, but i not really sure which are the step that i need to follow, i aalready habe the CUIT and fiscal pasword, and everythings was going well, since i needed to add the ¨obra social¨, which is the one for the graphic designers and then which is the proccess with the invoices?, is really necessarily ask for personal information to the clients?


I hopa that you can help me with this, i really don´t know what i need to do, or if i need to hire an accountant that help me with this.

Hi! You need you enable "factura E", that is for services exportation. The
data you need to enter every time is quite general, I'm not entering the
client's information but Upwork's.
There is another stuff you need to complete in order to be considered a
"Micropyme" and pay less taxes. An accountant did that part for me.

Hi Leandro! I think you can't get dolars with Payoneer in Argentina. The usual is that you get the money on the local currency (at the day exchange rate).

Anyway, I heard that you can get dolars in Uruguay... Never did it.

Yes, you can. However, not in our country. In order to get USD, you would
need to go to an ATM in a country in which banks and ATMs give USDs. You
can also use the Payoneer card to just use it as a debit card, but the
currency exchange is the "official" USD value - around $59 pesos per dollar

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for the best way to get paid in Argentina in 2020. I have only used transfer to local bank before, but the change rate now is really really low.  With the new government and the new measures they put for dollars, I don't know if PayPal or Payoneer is better now.

Thanks in advance!
