Paypal "Get paid" method not showing

I need to add Paypal as my "Get Paid" method but it is not being shown in the "Add method" options. The only options I am getting are

 

Direct to the local bank

Payoneer

Wire Transfer

Direct to US Bank

 

I need to receive my payments in my Verified Paypal account.

By the way, I am also buying "Connects" using PayPal (Paypal being my billing method). So I don't know why this option is not being shown?

 

Thanks for your time.

PayPal is not available as a withdrawal method in all countries, because PayPal restricts which countries can receive MassPay, which is the method Upwork uses to get funds withdrawn. If you are in a country where PayPal is not available as a withdrawal method, the option will not show.

Hi Fahad,

 

Once you go to the Get Paid section under your settings you will be able to view the available payment methods for your country. If Paypal is not listed, this means that it is not supported. If you need further help with your PayPal account I would suggest reaching out to their customer support.

If you have any additional questions let me know, thank you.
