There are several methods to receive Your payment from Odesk.
I have ordered this list according to what I deem to be more cost-effective for any Providers.
The information presented here are sourced from the oDesk Help Center. For a complete discussion on the different payment methods that are available to you head on to theoDesk Help Center and every single option is discussed there.
What is this method
|Paypal||Providers in most countries can register with PayPal – however, most countries Are not supported for withdrawals from PayPal to your bank account. Before activating PayPal withdrawals to your @o-desk.com email address, please check that your country is supported. Even amongst supported countries, features and feesvary widely. In addition, PayPal may limit your account until you pass their verification procedures (which vary by country – a bank account or credit card is usually required).||$1 per withdrawal.Supported withdrawal methods and fees vary widely by country.|

|Moneybookers||Moneybookers is an international e-wallet system based in the UK. When you receive a payment via Moneybookers, your Moneybookers account is instantly credited with the payment amount.

Exchange rates and bank fees vary widely by country and bank.
|Wire Transfer||Wire transfers are a well-established way |
to transfer funds from bank-to-bank across international borders. Most international wire transfers today use the SWIFT system.Wire transfers are fast and reliable, but for international transactionscan be very expensive, and you are the mercy of your bank (and if it uses one, its intermediary bank or banks) to determine the exchange rate you will
receive. They are also quite complicated and it is imperative that you enter your bank information 100% accurately.
