With the growth of The Write Styles, I have recently found myself being inundated with emails from people wanting to know how to receive funds in countries where PayPal is not available. Believe it or not, there are many countries not supported by PayPal. Here are 4 alternatives to PayPal that I believe will assist writers receive their due payments.
4 Alternatives to PayPal
It’s fast, easy, and free to send directly from your debit card, bank account, or Wallet Balance. You can do all this in the Google Wallet app, or, if you’re on desktop, you can also send and request money in Gmail.

2Checkout operates in a similar means as PayPal and there are many reviews online which compare the two. 2Checkout is a leading global payment platform. They allow companies to accept online and mobile payments from buyers worldwide. They offer localized payment options. 2Checkout has joined a merchant account with a payment gateway. They permit customers to receive payments via credit card and PayPal.
4. Freelance Bidding Sites
Another means of receiving payment for work is to use platforms such as Upwork etc. I don’t by any means recommend sourcing work there. Make arrangements to work through to a platform like Upwork to receive PayPal funds. Ask to do your work through them, there is a 10% charge, and then you can receive your payments.
These are some of the better alternatives, however I will update this list from time to time. If you do have any other suggestions, please do email them to me.
Wishing you all the best of luck.
