Direct banking problem

I am new to Upwork and I'd like to add direct banking as a payment option.


  • I recently switched to an online-only bank account. I now discover that apparently it doesn't accept foreign transactions. It doesn't even have a SWIFT code.
  • I am Dutch but live in Brazil. I have a working bankaccount in NL on my name, but the Upwork system won't even let me try the SWIFT code because I'm based in Brazil. Is there any way I can work around that?
  • I can not open a normal bank account in Brazil at this moment because all the bank offices are closed at this time due to corona lockdown. 
  • I do not want to use Paypal or Payoneer.

Is there anyone who has a solution or who can help me out..?

Thank you very much in advance!
