Transferring the funds directly to UAE bank account is costly. I'm transferring my funds from Upwork to Payoneer and then Payoneer to my UAE bank account. If I transfer my funds on Wednesday morning to Payoneer and then make a withdrawal. I'm receiving the funds on Thursday on my UAE bank account. It's convenient and faster!

You don't need a Payoneer card to make a withdrawal. You just need to put in your UAE bank account details. Payoneer card costs $30 so it's better to withdraw using your UAE bank account.

Hi Ms. Camille,

 

This is my 1st time to withdraw my earning from Upwork, would you please advise me the better option of withdraw, if I apply the Payoneer method as an example, how the process goes and how much processing fee required?

 

Your prompt response is highly appreciated. Thank you so much.

you can add local bank account method it will low fee

The cost per withdrawal direct to your local bank is $0.99 (plus incoming
fees at some banks). Sending funds in your local currency may reduce or
eliminate incoming bank fees.

Hi Arnold,

I prefer to use Payoneer, I added my UAE bank account as my withdrawal method. Once the funds are available in Upwork, I transfer them to Payoneer then from Payoneer to my UAE bank account. If you transfer them during Mondays - Wednesdays, you’ll receive your funds the next day.

Hope it helps.

It costs $1 per transaction to transfer the funds to Payoneer. Then Payo to UAE bank account has no processing fee but exchange rate is $1 = AED 3.59

 

Hope it helps.
