All Things Upwork

Here at oDesk, we are always looking for ways to improve how employers hire, manage and pay their online teams. As part of this effort, we are proud to announce that PayPal is now a primary payment option on oDesk!
In addition to credit and debit cards, you may now choose to use your PayPal account to make payments to contractors on oDesk. As a verified PayPal user, you’re immediately ready to post a job, and pay for online work using your PayPal balance or through your bank account, without any additional account verification.

To select PayPal as your primary payment option, simply log on to your Payment Methods page. Once you’ve used PayPal, drop us a note at and tell us what you think. Or, discuss this new offering with our community.
