Karem Hasane from Morocco talks about freelancing and Payoneer

As a global payouts solutions company, Payoneer’s mission is to empower global commerce through connecting businesses, professionals, countries and currencies.  Karem Hasane from Morocco discusses how Payoneer helped him overcome local limitations and make his dreams become true.


Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got started with Payoneer:

My name is Karem Hasane and I live in Morocco. I work full time as a freelancer on oDesk doing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and website consulting. My story with Payoneer begins back in 2010. As you may know, our banking system here in Morocco doesn’t allow people to send money outside the country except rare cases where we need to transfer money to our relatives living abroad. I was eager to start working online so I looked for a solution by asking friends and searching over the web.  In the end, I found out that Payoneer is the best way available for me. Actually, it was a dream come true!

What i like most about Payoneer is:

1.  Payoneer prepaid Mastercard: 

I still remember the moment I first received my Payoneer card. I started to imagine standing at ATMs around the world withdrawing my money.  What was even more exciting was that I could connect my Payoneer card with ODesk to receive payments more simply. Payoneer made it easy for me to provide my service to people around the world. I can easily load my payments from ODesk on my Payoneer card (in minutes) and start using my card anywhere I choose! That’s why I consider Payoneer as the most fast, secure and efficient payment solution for people working online.

2.  US Payment Service:

With Payoneer’s US Payment Service I’m now able to work with companies like Google, Amazon, PayPal, ClickBank etc. that require a US bank account to receive payments.  Payoneer US payment service fits me great because I am working with several US blogs and affiliate networks.

3.  Payoneer customer support:

Each time I face issues with my Payoneer account I can easily contact Payoneer by E-mail, Telephone or Live chat and get fast and professional support.

 A few tips for people who are interested in working online:

  • You must have a high level of English to be able to communicate with clients from around the world.
  • Focus on professions that involve technology like web/ app development.
  • Offer your services on a variety of marketplaces like oDesk and Elance.
  • Don’t give up if you face difficulties at the start. That’s how all successful people start.

Great thanks Payoneer for the amazing service you provide to me and other Arabic members so we can find work online and build our community.
