Re: HBL Alternatives?

Now that HBL is no longer being supported, what are fast+cost-effective alternatives that you suggest?

Skrill is an option but I don't know how fast or expensive it is. I also don't want to rely on any single method in case something like this happens again, or always have to go through yet another layer of red tape before getting my money.

 

So which banks are eligible for the $4.99 fee for LFT, not more; process funds fast (1-2 days); and are good banks in general? If I'm getting an account for Upwork, it will probably become my regular account, so I want a good customer experience and facilities too. I have heard UBL is a good option.

Strange though it is, my friends are able to receive payments via HBL without any hitch! I wonder what the true status is then, for this bank?

Since when UpWork does not support HBL? I made a transaction on Jun 4, 2015 and it was fine.

Even now I can see my account in Get Paid option.

I have not received any notification from UpWork about HBL.
