"By making the transfer through ProZ Pay, I saved on the conversion rate as well as the bank cost for both parties."

A new service, ProZ Pay™, has been released to help make it easier for clients to pay freelancers. For freelancers, it is an easy and secure way to get paid, the way you want to get paid. There is also an additional benefit in being able to show prospective clients online that you are a real person who has been paid by previous clients. Advantages of ProZ Pay™:

* Keep more of your earnings (ProZ Pay beats PayPal fees in various countries when you choose bank transfer as the payout method), and potentially get paid earlier
* Show you are payable to prospective clients
* Less paperwork - enter payment and tax information once
* Get paid your way (PayPal and bank transfer available)
* Share your own personal payment link and include it in your invoices (integrated with ProZ.com invoicing for freelancers)
