Hello,

I am new to Upwork and I have a question.

I am a Nigerian and I have a USD domiciliary account opened here in Lagos.

I wish to know if I can use such account to receive my payments in USD and how do I go about setting this up?

Thank you.

You can withdraw to a US Dollar account, via wire transfer, but that comes at a $ 30 fee and is only worth it if you are withdrawing amounts such as $ 700 - $ 800 at a time.

 

That's assuming your profile gets approved and you actually get hired.
