What should I put in the Employer field, when opening a BPI savings account for the purpose of working here on Upwork? Thank you Smiley Happy

Hi Vanessa, 

When you are managing your freelancer business, you do not have an employer. Remember that freelancing means breaking away from the corporate cycle of an employer-employee relationship. With this, I would suggest that you relay to the bank that you are an online freelancer, and ask them your next steps. It is also possible that there is tick box/option for "Self-employed/Business owner."

Thank you for this quick reply.

I did exactly that and told her that I would be doing freelance jobs. But the teller insisted that I should still put the name of the employer and its address.
