Then you haven't reached the minimum age to use Upwork, either. You have to be 18+ to work on Upwork, and no, you can't use your father's bank account.

you still can't use anyone else's bank account.

Maybe look into Payoneer

Hi Omar,

 

You can only add a bank account in your own name, that matches your name on your Upwork account. If you are not able to set up your own personal bank account and would like to use your father's bank account, there is an option to create and use a joint bank account with you and your father's name reflecting on it, in which case you can use it as an eligible payment option on Upwork.

Hi Omar,

 

I would recommend reaching out to your bank directly so that they can advise you further. Thank you.
