best way to receive my fees in Egypt

Hello there!

 

This is my experience in Paypal in Egypt.

 

1. You can only use a Visa card not a Master card. 

2. The money can be sent from Upwork to Paypal right away. 

3. The money can be transferred from Paypal to your Visa credit within 3-4 days and paypal charges $5 per transaction. 

4. Now your money is in the credit card you can use it for purchases, or can withdraw it from ATM

 

The cons: this is a credit card so you have to pay the fees and the interest. 

When you withdraw cash the bank also charges I guess LE 15 per cash withdrawl from a machine. 

So I feel that I am losing a lot of money in the process. 

I guess the best option is to wait until you have some money in your account like USD 400 or more than have a wire transfer to your account. 

 

Hope this helped you!

Hey, 

May I ask which Visa did you use with paypal, and does it have a limit transaction rate?

Thank you.
