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.
