Hi Nassima,

 

I moved your question to the regional group. Some freelancers from Algeria may chime in and share their opinion here. I'd also like to point out this help article and links in it that have a lot of details about various payment methods available to Upwork freelancers. You can go to Settings> Get Paid to see which options are available in your country.

Hi,

I tried both PayPal and Payoneer master card,  now I am using Payoneer to withdraw my fund then I exchange my USD to DZD with someone who transfers my payments directly to my  CCP.

The problem with new Payoneer cards is that they can't be related with PayPal account, so if you are planning to use your funds for online shopping is better to have PayPal, or if, like me, you prefer DZD Payoneer is a good option.

Let us know if you find a better solution.

Hello,
Actually, I've been told that paysera card is the best option for Algerians, money can be withdrawn from here Algeria, and you can relate it with your PayPal account to transfer your money
Let me know what do you think about it

Hi,

You should have a local bank account, but the problem is that you cannot withdraw your money in USD, your funds are exchanged to DZD with the official rate (I think 1$ = 120 DZD).

If you sell your USD to someone throw Paysera or Payoneer it is 1$ = 160 DZD (and maybe more), but you must be careful, I sold my USD before to the guys from

**Edited for Community Guidelines** , you can trust them.

There are many payment solutions, and you need to be aware of their fees and taxes, eg. Payoneer is 29,95$ per year.

You should also put your payments in one wallet.

Good luck

Tried all methods. The cheapest and most efficient one is through Paypal linked to Paysera. Total cost is 1$.

 

1. Create a Paypal account an verify your ID.

2. Link your Paypal to Paysera Account using IBAN not using credit card.

3. It will take around 6 days to be verified.

4. Withdraw your money to paypal.

5. Withdraw from paypal to paysera.

6. Sell your Paysera amounts to trusted people against DZD (CCP). This step is the easiest as paysera amounts are highly in demand. OR

7. Withdraw using pasera credit card (not il Algerian ATMs as you'll get Dinars But in EU ATMs)

 

If you have other solutions please share.

 

Good luck to all DZ FREELANCERS.

Please, note that Direct to Local Bank transfer is now available for Algerian so you can consider that option along with Payoneer and a PayPal.
