    So I recently started working with some companies and what is the best way for them to pay me?
    I use payoneer, Idk if they can pay me trough it? And I think it's kinda stupid to give them my paypay with my personal name because they think they are working with a company, not just a single man.

    Any suggestions?

    Upgrade your paypal account to business and the personal name problem will be solved

    I use a business Paypal account that shows my company name and my alias, although the information shown on the invoice is optional, so my name is not a requirement.

    Yep, Paypal. And, it's OK to say you're a freelancer or working alone. Be honest but professional with the companies you work for. Every time I have a conversation with a potential customer, my dog starts barking. :\

    What can I do? I tell them I work from home. Working from home is becoming a lot more accepted now, so as long as you perform don't worry about someone knowing that you're a one-man show.

    You might also want to check out squareup or go conventional with a merchant processor. There are fees of course - set up - monthly - per transaction but depending on your invoice values you may be willing to accept these.

    Paypal should be fine. Also, always try to send an invoice when requesting for payment. You can use third party invoicing tools to make it look more professional :)

    Upgrade Paypal to business type, and use it to get payed.

    Anyway, on the first place I think you should be honest that you're one-man operated, that way you won't have other problems like getting busted etc. and people would know you're being honest. Most people likes honesty.
