Summary:This webinar is for both agencies and freelancers! Learn how you can manage your payments on either end of the transaction so that you keep the most amount of money in your own pocket, rather than losing money to fees and other hidden costs.
There are many options available to translators and agencies by which we can receive or make payments for services. This webinar addresses using payment methods to your advantage to keep the most amount of money in your pocket, rather than losing it to fees or exchange rates. We will cover the pros and cons of payment by check, direct deposit, wire transfer, credit card, prepaid bank card, PayPal/Moneybookers, as well as companies like Travelex and AMEX that facilitate currency exchange for those of us with international clients or vendors, as well as other related payment issues.
Target audience
• Agencies who pay vendors in or outside the country where they are located.
• Freelancers who receive payments from clients in or outside the country where they are located.
• Freelancers or agencies who are tired of losing money when paying across international boundaries.
Learning objectives
• Attendees will learn the pros and cons of at least 7 (legitimate) payment methods.
• Attendees will receive information that will help them assess which payment methods are most beneficial for their particular situation.
• Attendees will walk away with ideas about how to minimize the “cost of business” where sending or receiving payments is concerned.
It will be helpful if attendees review their current payment methods (for sending and/or receiving payments) before the webinar.
