Best Paypal Alternatives

Were you looking for the best paypal alternatives for freelancers? Check out these six other options for accepting online payments.

When I started online, I had no idea how to receive payments from people outside of my own country, and PayPal was the only option to receive transactions from these foreign countries. But, unfortunately, Paypal services are restricted in my country. 

The good news is that PayPal isn't the only digital payment service provider on the market.

5 Best Paypal Alternatives for freelancers in Tanzania.

Take a closer look at these five best Paypal alternatives and choose the one that makes the most sense for your clients/customers and your business.

Payoneer is an easy way to receive your payments

1. Payoneer

As a freelancer, Payoneer is an easy way to receive your payments for us whose countries PayPal is not supported to receive payments and make withdrawals. Payoneer helps freelancers get paid quickly and securely.

It is one of the best Paypal Alternatives for freelancers.

This PayPal alternative focuses on market sectors such as eCommerce, online advertising, freelancing, and vacation rentals.

Payoneer provides a debit card to go with their online account so that you can withdraw funds from your bank or ATMs worldwide.

The good

  • Quick and easy account set up
  • Seamless and straightforward transactions
  • Used around the globe
  • It is supported by major freelance platforms like Upwork and Fiverr

The bad

  • High fixed account maintenance and ATM withdrawal rates
  • Fees involved in bank account transfers unlike similar services where this is free
  • Hit and miss customer service
  • Overall, it is a reasonably reliable payment system used in any country globally, but you will need to come to terms with relatively steep rates compared with similar options.

2. Wise (formerly TransferWise)

TransferWise dubs itself "a cheaper way to send money internationally" and is a fantastic PayPal alternative if you make many international transfers.

Besides receiving online payments, you can also pay for a bank card to use your money directly.

Wise (formerly TransferWise)

The good

  • Automatically deposits to an outside bank
  • Accept payments from all over the world
  • Mobile payments

The bad

  • You will have to wait for a week after a transaction to collect your funds
  • Requires some programming skills
  • Only available for merchants in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and Ireland

It is a good and well-priced option for those based in a few selected countries.

Skrill Payment

3. Skrill

Formerly known as Moneybookers, Skrill provides you with an online account that is relatively quick to set up and easy to use. You can send money to other users, receive payments, buy items online, and send you a prepaid debit card that you can use for payments stores or ATM withdrawals.

The good

  • It's fast and easy to set up an account
  • You can use it anywhere in the world
  • Works with several major currencies
  • Has a reasonable flat fee for transfers (1% and limited to 10 euros max)
  • It's fairly secure

The bad

  • Stringent fraud prevention policies can cause problems like freezing accounts
  • Poor customer service makes it challenging to resolve issues quickly

As long as you aren't one of the few unlucky people who experience a problem and have to deal with their lackluster customer service, Skrill is an excellent online and offline payment method.

Cryptocurrency via Binance Pay

4. Cryptocurrency via Binance Pay.

There are lots of Paypal alternatives out there. However, I enjoy using Payoneer the most due to their credibility & excellent service. Although their fees are a bit high, they are linked to most freelancers' freelancing platforms.
