Would it be possible for someone to tell me all the methods that companies can pay me by?
My situation right now is: I have just arrived in Argentina, but the country only hands out a bank account AFTER ONE YEAR, so I am obliged to work via Western Union and DHL.
Therefore I would like to ask if you could provide me with anymore methods of how I could get paid, as I don't have any bank account anymore in my country of origin, Belgium either.

Hi Marleen,

I do not live in Argentina so I cannot actually provide an answer to your question, but I can tell you that this issue has been discussed many times.

If you do a quick search you'll find plenty of information. These are just some of the threads on the same topic:

Many of these threads are in Spanish, as that is the language most commonly used in this forum (La Traducción en Argentina).

Best of luck,

Hello Marleen,

I'm a translator from Argentina and right now the only option available for me is to ask for a PayPal Check. I have some money in a Moneybookers account but I can withdraw it, since it doesn't issue checks for Argentina.

I would suggest that you read the links Laureana posted. Maybe you find another option.
