Why there is no Direct to Local Bank option in my proposed payment options. I only have the US banks and third parties (PayPal and Payoneer). Recently I finished my first job on Upwork, and when I tried to enter my bank account information I couldn't find the desired option.
Can someone help me please? Did something change because in the Instruction Manual it says that that is one of the options?
Upwork supports direct transfer to many countries, but not all. You can only wait until they reach there or use other means to receive your cash.
I am from Vietnam, direct transfer has only enabled about 2 months ago.
I checked your account and can see that the Customer Support Agent has explained this in detail. Unfortunately, we do not have a partner bank in your location yet which is why the Direct to Local Bank payment method is not available on your account.
I suggest to try to pick out the available payment method that works for you best.
