Scheduled payment to a method not yet active

Hey!

My next scheduled payment is going to happen on the 29th of June and I'm unable to delay it.

I recently added a new payment method (Wire Transfer(USD)) and set it as a default method for scheduled payments. It has been approved but it has a badge next to it that says "For your security, please allow 3 days for this withdrawal method to become active". And it should become active on the same 29th of June.

 

The question is: what's going to happen on the 29th of June?

Also: I have another payment method enabled (Payoneer) but I'm not eager to use it.

I can second this. A big request to Upwork: cancel the mandatiry withdrawal which will happen in 2 days, because given the Payoneer situation no one is certain as to where to withdraw money, anymore.

Hi Petra, thanks for your response!

Is there a way to check out when the "oldest" money was earned?

When did you last withdraw all your balance?

No idea. Might be actually close to 180.

You can stop the auto-withdrawal:

 

What you want to do is change your schedule right now:

 

Go to Your Settings > Get Paid

 

Click on Edit Schedule

 

Change it to monthly (last Wednesday of every month)

 

That will give you a month. ( the new withdrawal date will be 29th of July)

 

On Wednesday you can change it back to quarterly, which will buy you even more time, but do NOT let it go past 180 days after the "oldest" money was earned, or it will auto-withdraw.
