How to get paid – Best ways for freelancers and entrepreneurs

The best ways for you to get paid as a freelancer or entrepreneur!


Paypal is very known and you probably already use it, it is great, fast and super simple I highly recommend you to use it. My second choice for you, it is something called Payoneer, this service is not very famous as PayPal but it is amazing and for some people even better.


The most common

It is the most common way not only to get paid but also make payments. You can link your credit card or debit card to pay anything using PayPal, you can also add credit to funds or link your bank account to make transfers.

You need to verify your account to make the best use, all you have to do is add any card and pay $1, once it is done your account will be verified and ready to use. They use the money to make sure your card is real, they send you the money again to your account when the process is done.

You do not need a bank account to use PayPal, for example, you can get paid for any job you did online and spend the money available in your account at any moment you want but at least you need to ask to a friend or family member to give you a credit card or debit card only to verify the account.

They do not need to pay for anything and the card will not be used unless you decide to use it, the only payment required it is the $1 to make sure the bank account is real. There are no maintenance payments.

These days most of the businesses offer you the chance to pay using PayPal, it is global and everyone uses it. When someone is buying or selling on the internet, PayPal is very helpful and a must have tool.

No matter what you are doing right now, if you want to know how to get paid not only to save time but also improve your business to the new trends, make sure to have your own PayPal account ready to use at any moment.

They take a small % for each transfer or payment, like any other bank or service of this kind.

Follow the new trends!

Another great option

If you do not have a bank account it will be hard for you to use PayPal because you need at least to verify your account with a credit card or debit card. Maybe you do not have one or maybe you do not want to ask a friend to borrow you a card.

Do not worry! I got you, I have the perfect solution for you. If you want to have physical money with PayPal you need to make a transfer to your bank because the balance in your account it is like “virtual money”.

Payoneer works very similarly, you can even link your PayPal account to it and that is awesome. You do not need bank, credit card or debit card to sign up, it is free.

Once you create your account, they will send you a debit card to your house in the next 2-3 weeks, maybe a few days more depending your location and how busy they are but the process is very fast.

The moment your card arrives, all you have to do is go to any near bank and create a security password for your account. As simple as using the card for the first time at the cash machine.

After you do that, your debit card is ready to use. If you keep struggling about how to get paid, Payoneer is very good for you. Works almost like PayPal but the cool thing is that you can go to any bank from any country and you can withdraw physical money right away, yes I said any bank any country, how awesome is that?

I can go anywhere, it does not matter if I am buying some shoes or paying the supermarket bill, the card is always available to use.

Remember that is a debit card, not a credit card. Same as PayPal, you can make transfers to your bank account and if you lose the card you can ask for another one at any time with no cost.

You do not need to pay for anything, the card, the service, and the shipping are free!

Final notes


It is up to you which one to choose but I recommend you to have both. PayPal is very known and it will be helpful for you in the future. Payoneer is almost the same but it will help you get physical money at any time anywhere in the world.

Free and awesome services, there is nothing better for you as a freelancer or entrepreneur to have these tools. Most people do not have how to get paid when working online and I hope to help everyone with this informative blog post.

  1. This is very good information. A lot of people are hesitant to try Paypal because they don’t normally know how it works. It’s my top choice for everything, even online shopping!

  2. I had to open a PayPal account when I started monetizing my blog. I have heard good things about it though so didn’t hesitate.

  3. I love using Paypal, especially since I have their debit card, so I don’t have to use my bank account, or transfer it to use it. Payoneer sounds interesting, never heard of it, but will check it out. Blessings!

  4. I have been an online freelance writer for the past 6 years and I have been using Paypal since then… the problem I have with paypal though is their customer support service.. it’s just so hard to contact them whenever an issue arise.. I just hope they could do something to improve it… nevertheless, I enjoyed using Paypal and I don’t see any reasons to transfer to other company yet

    1. Customer support can always be a problem but thank you for sharing your experience using PayPal. Is not about changing company, having both could be very helpful but if you want to keep using only PayPal that’s ok too!

  5. This was very informative post, I have never heard of it. Payoneer seems better, anyways. Thank you so much for sharing. I have so much more to learn.

  6. This is great information, I have been using PayPal for many years both personally and in my business. I certainly like the idea of having a debit card so Payoneer looks like a great option. I wonder if you can link your Clickbank account to it? Maybe keep my earnings separate from payments.

    1. As far as I know you can, Kerie! What you want to do sounds pretty interesting, having your earning and payments separate. The debit card is a good feature, they send it pretty fast and you can use it right away anywhere.

    1. Exactly! I love to have both, PayPal is global and known, Payoneer gives me a second great option. The best thing about Payoneer is the debit card which you can use anywhere in the world.

  7. Good article and very informative. I have a PayPal account but it has been years since I’ve used it. Either I pat or get paid via credit card, which works well for me.

  8. I always use paypal and I find it the best tool when it comes to online money management. Yes, they do charge a small fee, but your money is protected and safe.

  9. I had heard about Paypal but havnt really tried it. In fact, being a freelancer myself I was thinking of trying to monetise my works . This post has been of great help to me. Thanks.

    1. Could be hard to find jobs as a freelancer, you need to be professional. Build a website, showcase your best clients and keep trying. Do not beg for a job because looks quite desperate and people do not like it.

  10. You are correct PayPal is the most well known. Payoneer is used by a lot of MLM to pay their people on a debit type card. I did not know they had any other services. However, I have heard quite a few people say their customer service is terrible.

  11. Getting paid is often one of the things that online business people worry about. UNLESS they have a seamless pay system setup like you have displayed! Thanks for the post!

  12. I have been an online independent essayist for as long as 3 years and I have been utilizing Paypal from that point forward… the issue I have with paypal however is their client bolster administration.. it’s fair so difficult to get in touch with them at whatever point an issue emerge.. I simply trust they could accomplish something to enhance it… by and by, I delighted in utilizing Paypal and I don’t see any motivations to exchange to other organization yet

    1. If you use the debit card you probably end up paying something like 30 bucks per year for maintenance, PayPal doesn’t charge anything but there is no global debit card and real money in your pocket.
