How to receive money from foreign customers cheaper than PayPal

At Pay2Commerce we want to support international working relationships. Very often our clients receive income for their work abroad either by providing a specific service or simply selling a physical or digital product, most of them use PayPal, being this platform one of the most expensive in commissions per transaction, apart from the tediousness of withdrawing money in your country of residence.

A large number of professionals sell their products or services to people abroad and need to be able to charge their customers quickly and what better way to do this than by accepting credit or debit card payments online.

Today we bring you a very excellent alternative to receive international payments and reduce costs using platforms such as PayPal.

If your work is with local clients, you will surely not have had any problems at the time of charging them, but the matter becomes more complicated when the clients are international. When trying to receive payments from abroad you have run into high PayPal fees that can take up to 8% of your earnings.

Imagine you have a client in the United States and he is going to pay you $1,000 if you use PayPal, apart from the fact that the client will have to set up an account and this takes some time… you will also have to negotiate with him, who covers the high commission or simply decide to lose up to 8% of your earnings.

Another even more bureaucratic way is by international bank transfer, not to mention the tedious process involved or the long wait for these funds to be available in your local currency or bank.

Some choose to use Payoneer or go through the long and costly process of formalizing an LLC in the United States to open a US dollar bank account in the US.

In the end your goal as a professional or business owner is to be able to charge your clients abroad with the lowest possible commission, in an easy, fast and secure way. Receiving the funds in record time and without going through high bureaucracy and to top it off… making life easy for your customers by allowing them to pay you with their own credit or debit card in less than 15 seconds without having to register in external platforms, simply by entering their card and information and payment is done.
