All Things Upwork
by oDesk

What is it?

Buyers can now manage multiple credit cards on oDesk and can decide which card will be used for billing.

Buyers can also set up a Backup card in case their Primary card fails.

Why did we do this?

When a Buyer’s Primary credit card fails, either because it has expired, there are insufficient funds or it has been canceled, oDesk suspends the Buyer’s account. In order to avoid any account delays, oDesk recommends that Buyers add a Backup credit card.

We will only charge the Backup credit card if the Primary card has failed. Read more about Primary and Backup cards here.

Provider and Buyers will also notice a new look for this section, including a new “Your Balance” box. Learn more about the new format of \”Your Balance\” and what the terms mean.

What does it look like?

We hope our new credit card management options will make it easier to manage your account!
