Withdrawing to a Bank Account - Local Transfer (ACH, SEPA, eCheck, EFT)

Local Transfers - Withdrawing to A Bank

goLance offers two ways to transfer money to bank accounts.
A local transfer and a wire transfer.
Please read this article and the one on wire transfers to make sure that you choose the best option for you.

What is a Local Transfer?

The local transfer method deposits your goLance earnings directly into your bank account via different payment networks. A local transfer uses existing regional networks to send the money to your bank in your local currency (a.k.a. ACH, eCheck, International ACH, SEPA, EFT, etc.) When you choose to withdraw money this way, the approximate amount that is seen will generally be the exact amount that is received into your bank account. However, this can depend on whether or not the withdrawal needs to be approved first.
When you choose a withdrawal method, the conversion occurs on goLance's end.

Here are some important details to note about using local transfers:

How to Add a Local Transfer Payment Method

First log into your goLance account and navigate to your goWallet. Click on "Add a Payment Method"

Select "Withdrawal"

Choose the method, "Bank Account".

Select your local currency for a local transfer. If your country is the United States, you will see that the the currency you choose is set to USD. If you are outside of the United States, you may see your own currency and USD as an option. If you select USD, this will be a wire transfer and may cost more!

Fill in your banking details and click "Add Bank Account". Your payment method may need to be approved first but soon you will see a successful payment method has been added to your account.
