How Payoneer Brought Me Back in World of Blogging
I am excited to share a brand new testimonial from one of our cardholders, Rehmat Alam from Pakistan, who blogs about writing, SEO, hosting sites and much more! He was about to give up on his writing but then he discovered Payoneer… Enjoy:
I am Rehmat, a passionate blogger from Pakistan and blog at SupportiveHands.net. A few months back, I was going to leave the field of blogging forever and the reason was the unavailability of an effective online money processing service in my country.
You know well that bloggers earn a living from their blogs along with enjoying their hobby but the case was slightly different for me. I was enjoying what I write and share with my blog audience, but wasn’t earning even a penny from it. I did several online jobs for free as my clients were offering me the payment via PayPal but you know well that PayPal isn’t available in Pakistan at all.
Those days, I thought to move my blog from Blogger to WordPress and searched for a good host. Several people recommended me Bluehost and when I went through their site, I came to know that I can’t pay them for their services from Pakistan. It sent me back and I decided to stay with Blogger as I wasn’t going to get any local hosting as they don’t do well.
After a month, I realized that I need an effective payment processing service at any cost if I need to continue my blogging journey. I realized the extreme need when advertisers contacted me and showed their interest to advertise their products on my blog. I was helpless as they were offering the money via PayPal only, thus I needed to turn down their offers.
When I realized that I can’t monetize my blog with direct advertisers, I went for some PPC networks but get discouraged as almost all PPC networks, except AdSense, were processing money via PayPal or wire transfer and both were inaccessible for me.
After getting bad results from all around, I decided to leave blogging as I wasn’t manage to monetize it and without monetizing my blog, it was impossible for me to continue the journey. As a last attempt, I googled for any possible solution and stumbled upon Payoneer in SERPs. I clicked through the link and that single click changed my entire life.
I signed up for a Payoneer MasterCard after knowing the details and luckily, my card got approved quickly. Payoneer shipped it to me and I received my card two weeks before at my residence in Gilgit, which is a remote area in north of Pakistan. Now I can receive payments from all over the world via US Payment Service and the money is directly loaded to my card. I can use my card to withdraw my money and can also use it to buy goods from all over the world. I have now purchased hosting from Hostgator and writing regularly on my blog. I do freelance jobs and receive the money in hours. Thank you Payoneer, for changing my life!!
