I have tried withdrawing (twice) my UpWork funds on a Monday (PH). UpWork then sends a confirmation email that says the expected day of arrival will be on a Friday (PH). I check my bank on my Friday (PH), no funds. I check my bank on UpWork's Friday (US), still no funds.
I talked to a co-worker and he said that when he makes a withdrawal in UpWork on a Wednesday (PH), it usually arrives late at night on a Thursday (PH) or Friday (PH) morning.
So I ask, is it best to withdraw your UpWork funds on a Wednesday in the Philippines?

I use Paypal.
I haven't encountered any delays yet.
Upwork -> Paypal.
Once it is in Paypal, don't withdraw it to your bank yet. Withdraw it the next day. Make sure you withdraw it before 8am.
Why before 8am?
If you withdraw it before 8, funds will be in your bank account about 10pm in the evening.
If you withdraw it past 8, funds will get to your bank account in 3-5 business days.
