Hi Margarita, 


You can choose either BPI or Metrobank for your Local Fund Transfer. The withdrawal will go straight to your savings or current account and reflect after 2 to 4 business days. Most freelancers from the Philippines choose BPI or BDO because there are no bank charges. 

You can also check out the help articles and threads that Vladimir shared for further information on Local Fund Transfers.

Does Metrobank have bank charges?

I use EON card of Unionbank to transfer funds from paypal. I just want to ask if I can tranfer my funds here in upwork directly to EON?

Hi Cathy,

 

You have the option to set up and use Local Funds Transfer and Wire Transfer payment methods, but will need to confirm with your bank if your account is eligible to receive these transactions.

 

On another note, please upload a photo that clearly shows your face and complete your profile.
