Paypal is the safest option. Also the country is Pakistan so it is better to stick to usual payment methods so as not to attract too much scrutiny.

@Subhodayam I have international clients from UK/USA/Canada I always prefer to receive payments via Paypal. Paypal will charge you 4.4% + $0.30. It’s definitely not the cheapest option available in the market. There will be other options which may cost you less. But I don’t mind paying a premium for the peace of mind. Paypal support is unbeatable. As far as Payoneer is concerned I once set it up but never used it.

Pakistan doesn’t have PayPal services so try Payoneer.

Paypal is the safest way to do it….

If you’re a freelancer or Consultant then tax liabilities are different, so be very careful about the income and maintain a complete ledger for your Business.

If you’re employed and working as a Freelancer, then you need to be extra careful.

I know you’ve not asked about them, but wanted to let you know about the Tax part.

@guest_999 @Shahskm @malikcool @deal_heist @rockstarmpm @MrKool_JJ @jambui @Nighthawk69 @tristar Thank you guys for all your suggestions. Client paid me through Payoneer. He made 2 payments $ 150 + $ 150. Received full amount. First time received on Payoneer.

2 weeks back another client paid me on Paypal of $ 150 but got $ 141.86 into my Paypal account.

Payoneer didn’t charge any fee.
