Payment by Wire Transfer in details

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

It is always easier to understand the process of payment when a freelance writer just like you tells about his own experience. Wire Transfer is the topic we would like to cover in this post.

“Freelance writing job is what attracted me even when I was a student but at that time I had no chances to get freelance writing opportunities. When I was free to do whatever I wanted, I decided to become a freelance writer. The only problem was choosing the payment method that would be the safest for me. I chose the electronic payment (Wire transfer) to be carried out by a bank I had already business with – JP Morgan Chase Bank. All I needed to do get my money for the job was to open a standard account in this bank which was set up to receive wire transfers. It took only half an hour to open my bank account. As soon as I opened it, I informed the company about it and was waiting for the first payment. I received my payment in 2 days after the company sent money on my account. You may only imagine how happy I was to get my money! The bank deducts $25 for each transaction and this is the only disadvantage I have found. Among advantages I may list the speed – it always takes 2-3 days to get my money and convenience – you just need to go to the bank and get money from bank account, so there is no need to cash money from electronic payment systems”.

PayPal – freelance writer’s experience

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

One of our freelance writers is willing to share his experience using PayPal to be paid for his freelance writer jobs with our company. It is so detailed that it may help you understand better what PayPal is. Enjoy)

“When I became a freelance writer, I was sure that everything would be Ok, the only thing I was worrying about was whether I would really get paid for my writer employment. The first order and the first try to get my money…As my friends recommended to me, I chose PayPal as one of the best the method to be paid for my freelance writer jobs. The first thing I had to do was to open a PayPal account – sign up at www.paypal.com. It required a credit card with at least some US dollars on it and e-mail. Opening a PayPal account was easy to do because I needed only to choose the type of account, input my personal information and CC ID. The first step was done but I still doubted whether everything was done properly. My friends calmed me down convincing that as soon as I perform my first order, company will transfer the money to my bank account via PayPal. I did me best performing the first order, and was waiting to be paid. As soon as I completed the order, I started to check my PayPal account to see whether I have got the payment for my freelance writing job. There was no money…I began to be nervous. Still I felt free to contact the company and ask them about the payment. You know, I simply forgot that the company makes payments two times a month – on the 1-3 and 15-17. I continued writing and when the happiest days for all freelance writers came (I mean the days of being paid), I received funds within 24 hours. Amazing! I felt motivated and it encouraged me to write more and more. This was my first experience working with PayPal. Now I have been working with PayPal more than 2 years already and I understand that this is the easiest and the safest method to be paid for writer employment“.

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Freelance writers have great opportunities while working from home, and each freelance writer enjoy working from home for his own reasons. Some of these preferences are the same, others differ greatly. For some people who have problems with their health, freelance writer jobs are the best choice. If a person has a terrible headache, it would be unbearable to sit at stuffy office all day long. While working from home let a freelance writer to be in his\her surroundings with no distractions. Some like flexibility most of all in writer employment as working from home means being your own boss and having time for family and kids. A freelance writer can control his\her own schedule and use his\her energy sparingly. There is no need to wear business clothes, get up early, and work when your feel that you are not in a productive mood. Many freelance writers choose online writing jobs because they hate traffic and do not want to spend their time on commute. And one big advantage is that you really need to have discipline when you’re your own boss. No commute, no packing lunches, no passive aggressive co-workers…isn’t it enough to enjoy freelance writing jobs?
