Hello everyone,


I am new on this site and finally got my first job awarded.

Probably a  question with a logic answer but here he goes:


Now I am wondering, so I have a contract.

But when I filled in my contactdetails when making a profile, I did not have to fill in my bank account nr or paypal account somewhere?


When is it requiered ? Because I assume when the payment is pending and ready to redraw, Upwork will need my payment information?


How does it work?


Thank you.

Hi Elze,


Yes, in order to withdraw your earnings, you will need to add a payment method in Settings> Get Paid. Please, check this article for the list of all steps you need to take in order to get paid.
