Hi Tharindu, Could you please go to your Settings>Get Paid>Add a Payment method? If you see Skrill among available payment methods for your location then you can set it up and withdraw money to your Skrill account. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Hi Valeria,

Could you also let us know what is the fees charged by Upwork to transfer money to a Sri Lankan bank through LFT?

Hi Chamini,

 

Unfortunately, Local Fund Transfer payments are not available for your country. Please have a look at the available withdrawal methods by going to Settings > Get paid > + Add a Payment Method and check the associated fees in this Help Article.

Hi Chamini,

 

Since you are not a US person, you will need to fill W-8BEN in your Settings> Tax Information. You can find more information about it in this help article.

I'm using skrill.You can get money to your bank account directly from them. In my experience that is the most profitable method.

Hi, Tharindu, thank you for trying Payoneer and sharing your feedback!

 

Please note that with Payoneer you can also withdraw funds to your bank account. If you are not in need of a prepaid MasterCard and prefer to receive funds to your local bank, in your local currency, this is an excellent option.

 

We support local transfers to Sri Lanka in LKR. You can read more about how it works here: http://www.payoneer.com/WithdrawToBank.aspx
