Payoneer is a waste of time!

I have been fighting with Payoneer from quite a long time now. I think it is has reached the point when I should share my experience.

I started working on upwork as a freelance developer around 2011. About four years ago I was looking for options to receive payments from foriegn clients when I found out about Payoneer. I read that it was a good substitute for PayPal, which is not providing ‘proper’ services in Pakistan even today. (Read my article about PayPal here, I am also annoyed with them 😉 )

Anyway, Payoneer sent me their so called “Prepaid Debit Card” twice and I didn’t receive it. Their customer services people wrote to me that I should order  the card via DHL service and I should pay around $60 dollars for that. In my opinion for people living in Pakistan thats a bit expensive so I wrote to them in retaliation. They just stopped responding to my emails 🙂 Awesome customer services 😛

In 2017, about three months ago, I received an email from Upwork that they had automatically sent about $50 (I hadn’t been active) to my Payoneer card. Surprised I was with both Upwork and Payoneer. With upwork because how could they change my auto transfer payment method without informing me. With Payoneer that they hadn’t blocked an account that had been inactive for more than three years straight!

Anyway, I assumed Payoneer Customer Services will not respond to me so I wrote to them via Facebook. To cut the story short I received the card in less than two months time. (I saw light at the end of the tunnel 😛 )

You might have thought that all is well that ends well. It doesn’t!

The card arrived and I got it activated. It took me about month to reach the time when I actually used it on an ATM of MCB. I would like you to stay focused here and keep in mind that $1 = about 100 PKR so the math is simple just multiply with a 100.

I had in mind that upwork sent about $50, so I took out Rs. 5000. The ATM responded with “Not enough money in your account.”

So I entered Rs. 4000. Again, “Not enough Cash”.

I checked the balance and it was PK 4300.

I took out Rs. 3000. Again, “Not enough Cash”.

Tried Rs 1000 and money came out lucky me 🙂 I checked the balance it was around PKR 2700. I took out another 1500 and now the balance is Rs 250 something. Did anybody get what happened here?

Out of $50 (PKR 5000), I received only PKR 2500 (50 %). The rest of 50 % was gone in deductions!

Shame! My hatred for Payoneer continues to grow and every time I see your ridiculous add on my facebook, I am disgusted! I mean its 2017, this level of customer dissatisfaction, can you afford that?

For those of you who are still looking for solutions especially from Pakistan, Upwork makes a direct payment to bank and deducts less than $5 per transaction (Yea they screwed up earlier but their customer services are cool people!). Similarly if you want to send invoices directly to clients try 2checkout.com. Amazing service!

Please feel free to comment below to share your experiences, good or bad 🙂

Annoyed with PayPal

From as long as I can remember, PayPal never offered services in Pakistan. I never understood why, I mean we are one of the largest software producing companies of the world. Our programmers are found in every software company. I mean you name it and we are there. Fine we might have political and demographic issues but we know how these machines work, no big of a deal!

Web Design – What to include?

Web Design is a prime concern for all entrepreneurs, especially if you are looking for a complete online solution. The design and over all look and feel matters, since most of the users are just going to open the home page, go through it for a couple of seconds and then move on to something else. People don’t read and go into details. It is the over all impression that they get from your website that matters. The highlighted text, the services you provide and then finally how to actually get in touch. Let me highlight a couple of things that you should consider when getting your website designed/redesigned:

Deploying ZF2 project on shared hosting

We were deploying zf2 sample project Album and added another zfcuser module from the bank on the local server. It was working  fine on the local machine. But the deployment became a problem. Now zend does not require any additional things to be uploaded, all you need is to upload the zend in the right folder and everything is ready to go. But we got stuck because the zfcuser was listed in the modules with a capital Z, apparently Linux is case sensitive. All this energy wasted just because there was a typo, capital letter entered! I am writing this small little thing because I couldn’t find this on any of the blogs. It might be stupid for some but it is a genuine problem!

monetize your site

Monetize your site

So you are looking for ways to monetize your site? You must have heard of many ways to do that. I thought I should share my experience.

For me undefeated champion is Google Adsense. No comarison! It’s because it offers pay per click! Simple! Somebody reviews your websites and likes the ad on it so he clicks it and you get a commission. The only problem is that the ads are not targeted well. In the sense Google only finds what the user likes and displays according to the visitor. Yes the content also matters, but not all the time. The payout is 2% of the total viewers.

Clients with Payment Method Not Verified

When I was new at oDesk, a fellow colleague once noticed I was applying for jobs where the client’s payment method was not verified. He emailed me warning about such clients. He shared his experience that such clients don’t pay. Actually you see that fixed price projects were not covered back in 2012.
