Use my paypal account to buy my friends's connects

Hello, Can we, me and my friends, use the same paypal account (my account) to buy connects ? I am trying to learn them how they can work on upwork, but they don’t have connects and they don’t have payement method to do. So my question is : can them use my personal paypal account ? means it’s allowed to link the same paypal account for more then a freelancer profile just for buying connects ? Thank you

Hi Slimani,


Please use a billing method you are authorized to use. If any issues arise, our team will notify you directly. Thank you.

You cannot use another account to purchase connects with you Unless the Profile name is the same as of the Bank account. If you use another person account to buy Upwork will ask you to verify identity for the profile because of different names.

Thank you!
