Hello everybody, I'm new here,as I've said,and I was asked to scan my ID and send it to oDESK in order to verify my identity.So,have all freelancers done this, is it safe? My second question.I got hired but I haven't chosen a payment method. Which do you think is best? Any suggestions especially from Greek freelancers? Thanx

This is optional so everyone has not done it, though many have. It's safe so long as you are doing it through the proper channel: Start here

Thank you for your answer Robert. I did it yesterday when I was offered a job and I thought u know maybe the client wanted to verify me. But I got a bit worried. Anyway I got an answer from oDESK thanking me and telling me my ID is being verified.Hope everything is OK. Now,I could use some help with the payment method- should I choose PayPal or Local Funds Transfer which is recommended by oDESK for Greece? Sorry for the questions,thanx a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello Katerina, i'm a bit confused about the payment method and i was wondering if you could help me. Did you link your bank account to your paypal? Do you need to provide receipts and taxes after a work is done? Generally, what does sb have to do apart from choosing a payment method? Thanking you in advance for your help and sorry for the long questions!

Hi Eva I gave oDesk a bank account number and I've signed a form that I'm not from the US so I don't pay taxes to them. That's it -we'll see. Keep in touch.
