PayPal is an awesome international payment method that can be used online effectively by freelancers and businesses to send/receive payments. It is the most widely used payment method. But unfortunately, PayPal do not support Pakistan and many other countries.
If you are from Pakistan or any other non supported country, you cannot send/receive payments through PayPal, the most unfortunate and frustrating thing is that you cannot even pay using credit card if merchant is only accepting PayPal. So you often cannot buy that useful piece of software, some great ebooks or you cannot get paid by many online programs.
I lost business of thousands of dollars online because of unavailability of PayPal. So I hate PayPal and on other hand also want it badly 😛
Leaving all the sour discussion why PayPal is not available in Pakistan either because of lame policies of State Bank of Pakistan or because of high fraud rate, whatever it is 🙁 I’m going to discuss few PayPal alternatives those can help you survive and in some cases thrive online.
I love Payoneer and its at top of my list for a PayPal alternative. I was first introduced to Payoneer by my parnter and mentor David Daniels in 2007. We selected Payoneer for our company as a payment method over Western Union to pay freelancers and employs.
Payoneer gives you a Master Debit Card. Funds can be withdrawn from ATMs, in Pakistan Payoneer card can be used at MNet ATMs (MCB, Standard Chartered and Citi Bank).Your clients can load money to your card using credit cards and US ACH. With Payoneer you can also accept ACH. Low monthly maintenance fee and fast availability of funds makes it an ideal choice.
However getting a card is a little tricky process for newbie freelancers, you cannot apply directly at Payoneer’s site for a Master Card, you can get a card if you are affiliated with one of their partners like Guru.com, 2CO and GetAFreelancer.com (etc).
2CO or 2Chekcout is a long standing and respectable payment solution. Lots of websites on the Internet use it including some Pakistani sites. You can accept PayPal payments using 2CO. 2CO has a handy feature of “customer invoicing”. You can send invoices to your clients by email. 2CO also offers Payoneer Master card, you can withdraw funds from 2CO using Payoneer Master Card or through check/wire transfer to your bank account.
The downside of 2CO is that you have to pay $50 sign up fee and its difficult (almost not possible) to implement one 2CO account on multiple sites. Also you cannot sell many products using 2CO including web hosting.
However for one site and for invoicing clients through email, 2CO works great.
MoneyBookers can be used for receiving and sending funds (person to person and person to business transfers). MoneyBookers can wire you internationally, you can receive funds in MCB and UBL in 3 – 4 days. However very small number of merchants accept MoneyBookers online, it means you cannot have access to good web hosting companies, big stores and other services if you use MoneyBookers. An other downside is that MoneyBookers do not accpet Maste Card, payments can only be made using VISA cards (I don’t understand why they are not solving this issue).
AlertPay can be used for receiving payments from clients. It is a Payment Processor that is mainly used by Paid To Click (PTC), Paid To Read (PTR) and High Yield Investment Program (HYIP) type sites…And more recently for multiple large business and financial transactions across Europe and Asia.
There are 3 types of account – Personal Starter, Personal Pro and Business. All are free to join. For a quick start you can get a personal account for free and you can withdraw money via Check, Bank Wire and Bank Transfer.. The downside with AlertPay is that you cannot load funds to your AlertPay account from Pakistan.
CCNow is a merchant account (credit card processor) that also accepts PayPal payments, same as 2CO. You can get start accepting payments with CCNow for only $10. You can withdraw money via Check, Bank Wire and Bank Transfer.
Plimus is an other payment processor same as 2CO. Plimus is free to join, you can implement it on multiple websites and take payment from PayPal. You can withdraw money via Check, Bank Wire and Bank Transfer after paying Plimus commission.
Payoneer, AlertPay, MoneyBookers and 2CO are very good for newbie freelancers and if you are an expert and have several sites where you want to sell your products then go for CCNow and plimus.

Faisal siddique bhai can you tell me wht is the other way to use paypal in PAKISTAN. I need help of your’s. firstname.lastname@example.org is my ID.
AlertPay – the best!
Fasial was right, but the way he is using is too complex…. you have to get system out side Pakistan… get remote login of that system…. get some one paypal account, which is already working 100%… browse that remote system… login to paypal and use it… for selling / buying…
Why you people wants to use paypal there are so many alternates….
2Checkout = Very Good Specially for pakistani who want to sell goods to world(But be sure to have good return Policy to secure yourself). 2checkout customers will have the option to pay for their purchases with PayPal as well.
The downside to using 2co is that there is a sign up fee of $50. 2co requires that you have a website detailing your products and services and that it passes a review by their risk assessment department. This makes it difficult for new freelancers to get started with this payment solution.
The other problem is that 2co is limited to just one website. If you want to use it on multiple sites you have to pay an additional fee.
Google Checkout = Really Awsome if you live in U.k or USA leave everything just go with google checkout it is really cool with protection to seller , low fee i am using it in 90% of my transaction and that is damn cool.
moneybooker.com = very good specially there no chargeback policy. but the limits are the problem (you can remove them by providing proofs) not very good because the market is very limited.
Plimus = A lesser know payments company is plimus. It has no sign up fee and allows you to accept paypal payments. Plimus promises to pay merchants via check or bank transfer after deducting its commission. It is also not limited to just one website like 2co.
Unfortunately plimus is not as well known as 2co so buyers may hesitate in paying you through it.
Both 2co and plimus charge a commission on each transaction conducted through them. Be sure to go through their fee schedules before you use their services.

There is no possible way in which PayPal account could be utilized in Pakistan and non-listed or non-supported countries. Be aware of those who are telling you about the way arounds and services.
I worked three years for PayPal in Canada. We had received hundreds of queries from non-supported or non-listed countries including Pakistan. We have even traced out fraud services and sites who offer fake PayPal integrations. v
These services mainly capture important fund transfer information like complete credit card details, bank details, TPINS etc.
I just landed on this page via Google search and would like to tell everybody that please don’t waste you time and pleased on’t share your credentials with individuals who claim that they can offer PayPal services or alternatives.
I badly need to know how to sell to customers out of Pakistan. Google checkout and moneybookers that have been mentioned DONOT support Pakistan. Please HELP!
GUYS!!! WAKE UP!! how many times have u been lured to something that sounds too good to be true?? doesn’t it ALWAYS turn out that there is a catch to it.
If any one has found out about the paypal secret that Faisal Siddique is holding,, (no offence by any means) y is it not out in the open. WHat so secret about it. You can think of only two reasons.
1.Most probably there is some sort of a catch to it.
2. Or its just our habit to believe everything anyone says.
I can fully verify paypal accounts via both bank account and credit card only in 10 minutes without any hassles for use in any country.
