I have been a PayPal user for almost a years, and I love it to the core. When I was starting out online, I had no idea how to receive money from people outside of my own country in Pakistan, and PayPal made it so easy to receive money from these foreign country transactions in Pakistan.
Paypal is the secure method to receive the payment in Pakistan. For new Freelancers who are earning money online face difficulties to get money in Pakistan, by using Paypal they can easily receive money from foreign countries.
There are many sites that are similar to PayPal with more or fewer features. I will list some of the best money transfer sites which I have found while searching for an alternative method for receiving payments. If you know of any others feel free to suggest via the comments.
Paypal Alternatives in Pakistan
For the quick read, here is the list of services that are mentioned below:
Payonner in Pakistan
Payoneer is one of the oldest services for global payment, and now they are available in countries like, Pakistan, and many more. Payoneer will let you receive money from the U.S. & European countries. The best part about Payoneer is the transaction fees are lower and because of this, you will end up saving a lot of money.
Signing up for Payoneer is free, and once you have done a transaction of $1000 using Payoneer, you will get a bonus of $25. Now with payoneer you can transfer amount directly to your bank accounts in Pakistan.
Stripe in Pakistan
If you are looking for a PayPal alternative to accept payment on your online store, Stripe is the best option. It’s a USA based company & accepts the application from many countries in the world. If you are from a country which is not in operation list of Stripe, you can take advantage of Stripe Atlas program that let you incorporate a company in USA & also opens a bank account for you. I actually did all this to run ShoutMeLoud store & you can read about Stripe Atlas program here.
Many of my online partners have resorted to 2CO for all their online money needs. 2CO has a lot of positive reviews and is considered as a great alternative to Paypal.
The only downside of 2CheckOut is the high transaction & transfer fees. If you use 2CheckOut, I would suggest keeping your payment release level high so that you save on money transfer fees in Pakistan.
Getting on-board with 2CheckOut is easy & their support is pretty awesome.
