The Upwork was formed 1 year and  months after this merging of two companies. How does it work: Upwork works by allowing clients to interview and then hire the freelancers who meet their demands. The proposals are submitted by the freelancers through a specific window made for this purpose. The employer interviews the freelancer to discuss the requirements, deadline and price of the project. Sometimes, employer can also send invitation to the selected freelancer and also talk with him on a real-time platform which was recently introduced to reduce the time.

Profile creation: The most important step for a freelancer who just joined the Upwork community is to make a compelling profile. You can make a comprehensive profile with the options available on Upwork. Don’t worry about it at start to make it perfect. Just focus on mentioning your basic details like education, experience, skills, languages level, and a convincing introduction of yourself.

Find Work: You can find jobs by clicking the “Find Work” tab in the top left side of the window. You can choose the categories according to your skill-set then bid on the job postings of your choice. It is really important to write a compelling proposal to convince the employer that you are eligible of completing the job. Employers need entry level, intermediate or expert level of skills while posting jobs so newbiew freelancers should bid for the entry level jobs.

Payment procedure: Employer chooses his budget while posting the job and a certain amount is held in escrow which is released later on when the employer is completely satisfied by the delivered work of the freelancer. The freelancer can withdraw the amount once its is available by going in the ‘Reports’ tab and clicking ‘Overview’. There will be four states shown namely “Work in Progress, In Review, Pending, Available”.

Withdrawal: The withdrawal fee is PKR100/- which will be deducted regardless of the amount of earnings. You should enter the details of your bank account along with IBAN number and swift code. It is also important for a non-Usa resident to fill a tax form confirming that he is not a USA citizen. As the Upwork only allows professionals to provide their services so it is important to find and polish your skill before signing up for Upwork. You can take courses provided by SkillGains.com to learn from a huge amount of in-demand courses and prove your skill level by an internationally accredited certification.

What exactly is Skrill?

Skrill is an online repository for money. Like PayPal, you can open an account in Skrill, receive, and send money within seconds of clicks from the convenience of your home. There are no issues of national restriction. Skrill accepts and gives full access to people from different backgrounds and origins. It was formally called Moneybookers. Now, the firm boast of a growing 25 million users and earnings of $331 million in 2014. For those living in New Jersey, Skrill is the only official online wallet approved for gamblers.

Why Should I Use Skrill? Easy:

all you need to own a Skrill account is a working email and a password. Once you have created your account, you can from that moment start to receive or send funds to anywhere in the world. The money you earn stays in your e-wallet, and you can withdraw it anytime you want. All you must do is to integrate your bank account, Mastercard, or Visa card details to your Skrill account. It reduces stress and makes it easier to redraw.

Fast Verification process:

though you can instantly begin to upload, send, receive, and withdraw funds from your Skrill account, you should know that until you are a verified member of Skrill, there are limitations on the amount of money you can receive or send. While this policy might be a bummer, you can get that fixed in no time.

The verification process of this platform doesn’t take time. Within a day, you can have your account ready to receive any amount of funds. All you need is to provide them with your National ID card or its accepted equivalent, and a proof of address. Within hours of your compliance, you will get a message from the firm alerting you to the state of things regarding your verification attempt.The conversion rate and transfer price for withdrawing or sending money from your Skrill account are lower when compared to the likes of PayPal, or e-business firms like Upwork and Fiverr.

No border restriction:

this firm operates as an international channel for people to transfer and receive funds. The firm has already integrated itself with lots of local banks and firms. Hence, you can gain access to the full feature of the e-wallet regardless of where you are staying in the world. This provision will be beneficial for people who suffer restricted access to PayPal.

Quick Withdrawal:

you do not have to go through a lengthy process to get your money into your local account, or Mastercard. With just some few clicks you can have an alert within few hours. There is also the option of topping up your network balance for calls and test, instantly, like it is done in the brick and mortar banks. For those who will like to have a Skrill card, you can order for one though it will cost you.

Less restriction:

unlike other online, money storage, and transfer channels, Skrill offers lesser restriction without playing down on its security services. You will not suffer the risk of suddenly having your account banned, an imposed limit on the minimum amount you can withdraw, and other inconvenient situations that plague channels like Payoneer and PayPal.

For more information regarding Skrill, Payoneer, Fiverr, and other freelance money related firms and how to make the best of their services, visit skillgains.com. It is an online platform that hosts a community of highly trained professionals in different tech and online business fields. These people are willing to provide free tutorials and lectures on what you need to know in their various areas of practice.
