I have added my bank details to get paid. It has been 3 days but did not get it active. 

My email is **Edited for community guidelines**

Can you help me?

Hi Neetesh,

 

Could you please complete the W-8BEN form under Settings> Tax Info, which purpose is to

confirm you're not a US taxpayer. You can use your own legal name as it appears in your passport or other official documents. Let us know if the issue persists. Thank you.

Hi Bojan, How much time it takes to activate bank account after W8 is provided.

Hi Bhavana,

 

Once you have added a bank account and the W-8BEN then it should be active in 3 days.

Thanks for the clarification Mary.

 

Under Agency "Get Paid" option, It is still asking me to provide W9 form to withdraw the payments. Is this because:

1. I need to provide this info on my freelancer profile because I am a US citizen

2. I am the agency owner? 

3. The agency bank account is outside US?

Other thoughts?

 

Thanks,

Bhavana

Hi Bhavana,

 

All freelancers who are U.S persons should file a Form W-9 with Upwork (all others should file a Form W-8BEN). You sign electronically by submitting the form.

Since the payment method is added on your account you will still need to fill out our W-9 form in order to be able to withdraw funds.
Thank you.
