What does Earnings are automatically withdrawn mean?

 

Why would up work withdraw from my account if I'm the one who's supposed to be paid?


_____________________________

It simply means that Upwork has withdrawn the amount in  your account and sent it to whatever outside account you have specified - PayPal, your bank etc. 

 

ETA: For example, I have specified that Upwork should automatically send money in my Upwork account to my PayPal account  when my earnings reach $1000.

Hi Danny,

 

After setting a payment schedule, your earnings will automatically be released based on the schedule you have set and the balance limit (i.e withdraw earnings after they reach $100). However, you can withdraw your earnings whenever you choose by clicking the 'Get Paid Now' option. Please check out this article for more information.

 

Thank you!

Hi Danny,

 

Unfortunately, because Upwork is not a bank or payment transfer agency, we cannot maintain balances for more than 180 days, per our Terms of Service.

 

Thank you!

Yeah that seems crooked. This is why I **bleep**ing hate freelance and why I
never even wanted to try to do it in the first place.

It is not crooked. But you don't  have to freelance either off or on any online platform. Freelancing is not for everyone.
