So, you have met the deadlines, ensured that the client is satisfied and the project is functional. How do you ensure you get paid in the end?

Some of the most popular options include PayPal, Skrill, Payoneer, TransferWise, Stripe, Escrow and lots of others...

What are your experience with these online services and which ones would you recommend to use due to their ease of use, customer service, etc?

Hey Madza. I prefer crypto, if the client is not versed enough to use it, then I prefer Paypal.

Usually bank transfer as it's globally accepted, but I've quite enjoyed using Revolut when clients have it (and for my own personal travel use).
