No.  Your financial information must be under your own name.  You cannot use anyone else's financial account on Upwork.

What Christy has stated is correct.  The PayPal account must have the same email that is connected to your UpWork account as well as your legal name attached to it.  I can verify that, as I debated adding the Paypal I regularly use, but could not as it has a different email address (but still has my legal name attached to it).

 

Simply put, get your own PayPal account.

 You can only withdraw money to your own account (PayPal / bank / Skrill / Payoneer) in your own legal name.

 

If you lost your Payoneer card contact Payoneer and they'll send you a new one.

Yes. "Even if."

 

Respectfully, Vanessa:

People who are sick have bank accounts.

Peope who are disabled have bank accounts.

 

You are not telling us the full story here. That is fine.

 

But Upwork does not have special exceptions to its rules for people who say that they are sick or disabled. Upwork is not asking you to do anything unreasonable. Provide valid accounts. Keep track of account numbers.

 

Presumably somebody offering professional-level services on Upwork is capable of that much.

Hi Vanessa,

 

I'll reiterate that you need to use a withdrawal method in your name, because the name on your financial account must match the name on your Upwork profile.
