Paypal is the most widely used payment system on the Internet. Unfortunately Paypal does not support Pakistan but now it is possible to accept paypal payments via third party payment solutions. This means that talented Pakistani freelancers are no longer restricted in working online because of the unavailability of Paypal. There are two payment solutions that allow you to accept paypal in exchange for goods and services:
2checkout: 2checkout (2co) is a long standing and respectable payment solution. Lots of websites on the Internet use it including some Pakistani sites. Recently 2co introduced a new feature whereby vendors could allow their customers to pay via paypal. 2co in turn pays merchants periodically by check or wire transfer.
The downside to using 2co is that there is a sign up fee of $50. 2co requires that you have a website detailing your products and services and that it passes a review by their risk assessment department. This makes it difficult for new freelancers to get started with this payment solution.
The other problem is that 2co is limited to just one website. If you want to use it on multiple sites you have to pay an additional fee.
Plimus: A lesser know payments company is plimus. It has no sign up fee and allows you to accept paypal payments. Plimus promises to pay merchants via check or bank transfer after deducting its commission. It is also not limited to just one website like 2co.
Unfortunately plimus is not as well known as 2co so buyers may hesitate in paying you through it.
Both 2co and plimus charge a commission on each transaction conducted through them. Be sure to go through their fee schedules before you use their services.
