Payment methods

Hi All, i am new here and couldn't find if I have to add my card in order to receive the payments. Or I receive the payments in the Upwork account and after that I can transfer the money to my bank account when I want. In case I don't move them to the bank they will stay in Upwork, right?

Hi Nevena,


When your paid on Upwork the funds will become available to you here and then you will be able to withdraw them to your bank account, Upwork can hold your funds up to 180 days. To learn more about our payment methods check out our guide on Options for getting paid.
I would also suggest to check out this thread and learn more about getting started on Upwork. Thank you!
