Who does not want to do business abroad and earn worldwide?
I have very beautiful designs. I have rare handcrafted items. I can make very good software/websites. Or I can provide very good social media consultancy, SEO service, etc.; but…
We are aware of all these things we have and what we can do and say, “Let’s sell it too!” there is always a question that comes to our mind at that moment we say… Yes, you know that question:
How to Get Paid Worldwide?
Although there are different alternatives, in this article, I will tell you about Wise (formerly Transferwise), which I have personally experienced and opened an account very easily.
By the way, with Wise’s low commission, you can not only transfer money; at the same time, you can transfer to other countries. It is known that the high commission rates that banks cut in these transactions. This situation hurts especially students and families who are doing Erasmus or who need to study abroad and get pocket money from their families. By opening an account on Wise in the currency of the country you are in, you can send money from your country with a low commission. Now let the banks think, hehe 🙂
Let’s add a comparison chart that shows how much you get to the recipient when you send €1000, compared to banks.
Long story short; I, like you, thought of doing business abroad in a few areas and researched dozens of marketplaces. Finally, I said that I need to receive this payment directly. Because you cannot easily become a member of every market place. Or even if you are, the conditions can be harsh. Commissions deducted from each of your sales, etc. a lot of junk comes out. Most of them do not even have a payment method that you can receive directly into your bank account in Turkey. Let’s say you didn’t have any problems with all this; your product or service may not be suitable for sale in a marketplace, or you may not need it. In this case, all you need is a system where you can receive payments from anywhere in the world and transfer the payment you receive to bank accounts in your country.
When I have started to ask “How will it be now?” and try to find a solution I came across Wise and thought I’d give it a try. And finally, I have an account where I can open a balance in any foreign currency and receive payments. Yes, you open a balance in the currency you want and each one has its own IBAN. You want your customer in that country to pay your account by giving this IBAN to whatever country you will receive payment from. It is the same as how you get paid with EFT in your country.
“Wooow! This is good, but don’t take too long, tell us how we open an account.” you seem to say. You are right… Let’s open an account.
How to Create a Wise (Transferwise) Account?

If you need to open a corporate account, open a Corporate account; but I will describe the process of opening an individual account, considering that most of our friends who have personally experienced and probably read this article also need an individual account.
