Hello!
I'm new to 'international' translating and i have a question. How can be payments done to Slovenia? Paypal doesn't include Slovenia on its list. In what other ways could clients pay me my services?
Thank you and have a nice day,
B

Moneybookers Jul 11, 2004

Try www.moneybookers.com, I'm from Iran and like you case, Iran is not included in Paypal's list of countires.

I've been using moneybookers for some months now and never had a problem, although their system didn't approve my local bank at first but after a few emails to their support department, the issue was resolved and it's working perfectly now.

Thaks for your advice, but are there other ways of payments (cheques, etc.) and when to send the invoice to the client etc.

Hi brizitka! Jul 11, 2004

There are several ways of receiving payment from your Clients:

1. Bank transfer to your bank account (you need a bank account for this, obviously)
2. Cheque- which the Client mails to your address and then you cash them in your Bank (you also need a bank account for this, I believe)
3. Western Union-- I have used this option and it works fine, your post office should be able to give you more info
4. As already mentioned, Moneybookers-- never used it myself, but I've heard this works

As for invoicing-- you invoice after you have finished the translation and sent it to your Client. You also need to ask your Client about their payment practices (how long will you have to wait for your payment and what form of payment is acceptable for them).

If you have more questions, you can email directly to my address and I'll try to help more.

Best of luck!

IBAN and BIC Jul 11, 2004

Now that Slovania is a member of the EU, the same rules for money transfer apply: If you mention your IBAN and BIC number to your customer, a normal transfer from the customer's bank to your bank should be possible free of charge.
You should find your IBAN and BIC on your bank-statements.
