Hi Endrit,


No, you need to have an active contract on Upwork before you start working and all the payments need to processed through the platform. Please make sure not to start working on the prospective client's job until you've discussed the terms and accepted the offer they need to send you. Please review these resources in the meantime, especially the ones related to Upwork Payment Protection programs and tips for recognizing questionable jobs.
