All of the Pakistani freelncers would have noticed that the conversion rates when we withraw to a local bank account are very low. Recent USD to PKR conversion rate by upwork was 99 , but USD to PKR rate offered by some pakistani companies like Dollar east is 106 . So we are losing 7 rupees per dollar on every transaction. 

 

And if we try to withdraw in a USD Account than withdrawal fee is $30, This is weird because after all the service charges (20%)  and other fees why they want to make money when converting USD to PKR. 

 

Can some one from upwek explain this that why the conversion rates are so low and why $30 is charged for USD transfer.
