Raiffeisen but it has to be a VISA card, not Master.

Hello,

 

Since Paypal doesn't support Kosovo,to open my account I use Albania as my country,but when I have to fill further information like Postal Code or my phone number,I cannot give that information properly,for example the postal code in Tirana contains four numbers and here in Prishtina our postal code contains five numbers.

 

You know I'm stuck here and don't know what to do to get an open and verified account in Paypal.Maybe you could help me with this issue and tell me how did you get that verification since you live in Kosovo aswell.If you don't mind we can contact each other on email or social media.

 

Have a nice day.

Agon, note that Montenegro is listed on Upwork as a country although to this date they haven't got access to PayPal. What I think might be the true reason for omitting Kosovo from the country list are some weird policies of Kosovar central bank. 

 

Once I tried to withdraw money from my Payoneer card in Kosovo, and ATMs from few different banks informed me that my withdrawal would be subject to extra fees that hardly exist anywhere else in the world.

You can't receive money to PayPal via Upwork? Contact PayPal and they should allow that,it's what I did and it's working perfectly.

 Which country does "not allow Upwork?"

North Korea does not allow citizens to use Upwork. There are probably others.

 

Upwork does not do business with some countries. A list is here:
