One of the most difficult challenges that many Netpreneurs faced and still face with doing business online is that of receiving payments.
It could be really frustrating looking at all those monies you made and not knowing how to collect it safely, or looking at a platform you could use to make money but the problem being the means of receiving payment.
Trust me, I have been there and it could be really annoying and frustrating at the same time.
Back then, I devised several means of withdrawing my cash from these platforms and I will share with you presently.
The first REAL cash I ever made online was from freelancing on a website now known as knoji as an article writer and reviewer; and the sole means of payment then was PayPal.
I write articles daily back then for knoji when it was called factoidz and we were paid at the end of the month with PayPal.
But the problem was I didn’t have access to a personal PayPal account. I had to use a friend in Europe who got a cut off from the cash. When I was no longer comfortable with the arrangement, I started using onlinenaira.
Onlinenaira had a cut-throat exchange and commission rate which ate deep into whatever I was making online.
Their rates are still outrageous.
I however used and tested them out with my factoidz and fiverr accounts to be sure they are for real so I can refer those I train to them; that’s those who needed PayPal solutions without the risk.
Now, before trying the above methods, I had opened a PayPal account using some illegitimate means as Nigerians where not allowed to either open or receive payments with PayPal back then.
I ended up losing those funds!
If you ask me, I will say this……STAY AWAY FROM ANY ILLEGAL MEANS OF OPENING A FOREIGN PAYPAL ACCOUNT!
Fortunately, you can now open and verify a NIGERIAN PayPal account as well as make payments with it; but you still cannot receive payments with it as at the time of writing this book.
This is a huge drawback, but I have a fantastic solution that really came in to save the day with online businesses especially for places where PayPal is not fully functional.
Are you ready?
Here is the solution.
