new in oDesk,questions
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?

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 🙂

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!

[quote=Katerina Z.]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.[/quote]
I suppose all Greek banks work. Please correct me if I am wrong. I received assistance from oDesk live chat confirming this.
