    I didn't know you have to pay Upwork now to activate your account. Been freelancing there for almost 4 years now.

    Check your membership status to see how many connects you have left. You have to open a paypal account to be able to withdraw the funds you get from your clients. They also accept Skrill and other payment methods.

    Of course you can setup a Paypal account providing your country is listed as those allowed in Paypal's region. How are you planning to have Upwork pay out?

    You can pay upwork freelancer fees with debit or credit card too. I have opened one for my sister few days back and paid via card. I am also not from US.
