I am requesting to be helped with my getting paid method. I am in Uganda and it's not favoured in most get paid methods. so, I am requesting to add my local bank account were the withdraw and transfer fees is $0.99. 

I hope you consider my request and add Uganda to the list of countries that have the opportunity to transfer funds local bank accounts.

Thank you so much

Hi Faith, 

I checked your account and it looks like you just added your bank as a payment method in your account. Please know that new payment methods go through a three-day security period before it becomes available to be used as a withdrawal method. Once it's available (13-December), you should be able to withdraw your Upwork earnings.

Hello Avery,

This is what I meant. Uganda is not among the countries that benefit from that offer of  $0.99 per withdraw directly to local bank accounts. The direct withdrawal fee to local Ugandan bank accounts is at $30 per withdraw. Is there any other way?
