Hello, fellow freelancers!

I was trying to get my first payment with a customer. I'm in Europe, changed my settings to a European bank account + added my European cc, still when my customer wants to pay, he only gets dollars. 

1. Is USD the only option in which he can pay me, and then it gets converted?

2. or is there a way in which he can pay in Euros straightforward?

3. If he has to pay in USD and then the money gets converted, what's the conversion rate/fee?

Thanks to all in advance!

Every payment on Upwork is made in USD and the conversion rate from USD to Euro or from Euro to USD is determined by the bank. It's nothing Upwork are able to control.

Hello,
I am just jumping in the conversation as I would like to get paid in English pounds £, because after conversion the amount in my bank account is halved basically.
So is there no way to get paid differently?
Thank you
