  1. Hi there!

    Thanks for the article, quite cleared some frustrations I had prior to stumbling upon your site. I’m interested in getting into the digital marketing/ affiliate marketing space and was planning on using PayPal to receive commissions only to be disappointed in finding out about the sad one-sided relationship our country has with PayPal.

    Anyways that hasn’t killed my ambitions and coming across your blog has just made me believe it really is possible. After all great entrepreneurs make it happen from wherever they’re, with whatever they’ve, with whomever they’ve, right. The world doesnt care and the money doesn’t even listen to your excuses.

    It’s great to find out they’re likeminded people from these parts of the woods who would also like to conquer the digital marketing space. Since you’re already doing it I would greatly appreciate it and it would be a great read if you could write a blueprint article about how you’re managing to receive online commissions and circumvent these payment handles

    (Your new avid reader)

    1. Thanks. Let me make your request one of my priority upcoming articles. But, the long and short of it is; Payoneer. Fortunately, a number of Affiliate Marketing companies that are out there accept Payoneer, and you get your money using a Mastercard card. You can use it to swipe on most POS terminals here. You can also simply cross the border and withdraw rands or pulas if you really need value for your money. I also used to do freelancing on Upwork. Unfortunately, that platform has long since sanctioned Zimbabweans. I suppose one way of circumventing all this is to get a legally domiciled relative in South Africa to open a Paypal account for you. You would then need to use their persona for all your online work… You would also maybe need an SA VPN to fool websites like Upwork into believing you live there. Anyway, again, thanks for the comment and the article idea

      1. Would you be able to withdraw any amount to Payoneer without any problems if you used a South African Paypal account? What about tax implications for a small to medium online business? Wouldn’t they pick up on that?

  2. It is easy. If Zimbabwean PayPal does not receive money all you need to do is to go to a country eg SA where PayPal receive money, open your PayPal account from that country. You can use that account to receive even while in Zimbabwe.
