Employers can now pay with PayPal

Update: PayPal now available for both pre-funding & primary (automatic) payments

We have great news about your payment options.  Whether you are in the U.S. or one of the many countries supported by PayPal, you can now use PayPal to pay for your work on oDesk!

Here's how it works:

  • Use PayPal to pre-fund your oDesk account balance, with any amount you choose.
  • Your balance is drawn down as you accrue charges.
  • Add to your balance at anytime.

Currently, PayPal is only available to U.S. and international employers with a verified credit card on file with oDesk.   For U.S. employers, you will need either a PayPal linked bank account or PayPal balance to fund your payment. And, please note, payments are currently only accepted in USD.

Go to Payment Methods, to Pay with PayPal now.

This is just one of the many enhancements we’re making to the way you pay.  Look for more options to pay with PayPal coming soon.
