Aslam o alikum, all friends.
I want to make my account as a client to take my work from freelancers. The problem, i m facing, is how to pay to upwork????
====>>>> Paypal is not available in Pakistan.
====>>>> I have my business account in Askari bank. Can i use it or any other easy way please?????
There are only two options if you want to hire a freelancer and get your work done on Upwork. One is Paypal, which as you said is not available in Pakistan, the only other option is a credit card (wearing a VISA, MASTER logo on it), you can apply to your bank and they can issue a credit card to you.
Remember, the debit card or atm cards (whether they wear a MASTER, VISA logo or not) can not be used, only a credit card can serve the purpose. You can surely talk to your bank about it, and according to my knowledge, to apply for a credit card you should have a certain account balance, and you must show your employment history to the bank too. In addition, the bank may also ask for any extra details about your pay and job. I mean to say it's not issued to everyone who asks for it, it is only issued to employed people with a certain minimum pay (as set by the issuer bank) and who meet some specific criteria.
Jean, sadly I want to tell you that it is so poor system of Upwork & I am hopeless about the upwork cause I would not able to apply/bid from 15 days lack of connect. My income is so tinny & in this case below the result I am suffering :
1. Upwork charged 10%
2. Withdraw charged $5 per transaction
3. If the connects plan are transfered into the plus plan then is charged by $10
So, How will I do the work here? It is very difficult for some freelancer who are not able to earn as much as others rich freelancer.
In this situation, rich freelancer getting opportunity than the poor freelancer.
