Hello would it be possible to add Kosovo to the country list? For those who don't know Kosovo is a small country in southeastern Europe.

Hi Agon,

 

Currently, there is no updates on having Kosovo listed on the list of countries that a user can select on Upwork.

Yes I know that's why I'm requesting it to be added, Kosovo is a country and should be listed as such in UpWork.

I don't know if this has anything to do with Kosovo, but some countries don't allow Upwork, and the U.S. State Department doesn't allow Upwork to do business with some countries. Which is why some countries aren't listed on Upwork. It is usually not a technical oversight.

Hi thank you for your reply ,I don't think Kosovo would not allow UpWork , not many know what it is here but I would like it to be present in country list as I see no reason for it not to be.

Some countries are not available because there is no way for freelancers from those countries to receive payment from Upwork which is why it is pointless to add them. I seem to remember that Kosovo was one of those countries.

Weird, PayPal works here just fine, which is what UpWork can use to send money ?

You are not being rude at all Smiley Happy

 

upwork uses something called "Mass Payment" to send funds, which is why freelancers do not pay a receiving fee to PayPal when they withdraw via PayPal.

 

Kosovo is not on the list of countries which can receive mass payments.
