Working and doing business globally has become a lot easier with the help of global payment services. Entrepreneurs, self-employed persons, freelancers, and online businesses can take advantage by paying and getting paid at a very low cost. Bank wire transfers are a costly choice for doing business globally.

There are many global payment services available worldwide like stripe, PayPal, Transfer wise, Payoneer, and many more. But Payoneer is the one that provides its services in over 200 countries. Fortunately, one of them is Pakistan.

When I tried to receive payments for my work from cross-border clients as a freelance writer. It feels hectic, annoying, and stressful because I could not find the global payment service in my country that clients are offering like stripe and PayPal because I live in Pakistan and they do not provide services for Pakistan.

By and then, I started searching for ways to receive payments from abroad. After reviewing different global payment services.

I found Payoneer workable for me.

And for the freelancers, e-commerce, IT, and remote work.

Payoneer is the right choice! I believe.

There are many advantages of using Payoneer. It provides multiple currencies account. You can receive your payment in your local bank account in local currency. It provides discounts for high-earning clients. It has the option of a debit card.
