I'm new to Upwork.  Can someone explain how much I should charge?  Also, how do you get paid?  Do I need to set up a paypal account?  Very excited, but nervous.


As of right now, I am only doing this part time (only being able to work 3 pm to 10 pm each night).  How do I accept jobs, look for the right work to get started?

If you do, you'll be very well-prepared and well-educated on how the platform works, the rules and regulations that will keep you and your account safe, etc.


Good luck!

Cathy: It is not acceptable for you to work on Upwork at this time. You are not ready to work here. Please do your homework first before accepting any jobs, applying to any jobs or asking any further questions in the Forum.
