    Hi,

    So, I had been hesitating about posting this thread for 2 weeks ; but I think I should and it's the right time. I hope comments would be helpful.

    As far as I know, all of you are striving to make more money with IM. For me, the case is more difficult. Due to country restrictions (Tunisia), I am struggling to find a valid payment method. I don't have PayPal, neither a Mastercard (which I had tried to get but never received it). We have a customized card which is limited to $250 a year. Can you imagine ?!!
    What if I can come up with 10k investment (well I can make my friends demand their own cards and I use them but do not prefer so).

    Let's get back to the real issue, I read many articles here, but can't do anything because I will not get paid. The only clear payment that I know is AdSense through western union as far as I know.

    What should I do ??

    If you mention what country you are from then you might get some suggestions.

    Hmm you could try something a little more hands on and local.

    In other words, why not do web design or SEO for businesses in your area, so they can do normal EFT payments with whatever bank you use there in Tunisia?

    Yes, the Mastercard that I've tried, twice, is Payoneer but never recieved it, you know, I have friends that own a Payoneer; Every now and then, I recieve an e-mail from them to activate my card.

    Maybe a prepaid creditcard? You should look it up on google.

    So it probably got lost in the post. Contact them and let them know.
    Follow the instructions here under Why Has My Card Not Arrived Yet?

    Thank you for your answer, I would consider doing that as a start. But, do you think anyone would hire a mechanical engineer to do an SEO thing (with no experience) ??

    I am not making it so diffucult, I did follow the instructions after not recieving it the first time. As for the post, I contacted them. The man working there didn't give me any information. Plus, he was so agressive about me having the card (something related to hard currency I think) and asking me my purpose of creating one. It's crazy here and unbelievable.

    Maybe you need to try to leave the country and move somewhere less restrictive?
    Looks like currency exchange is a big problem in Tunisia so you will probably have better luck reaching out to local IM'ers/Entrepreneurs and asking them for a possible solution

    OP tell payoneer that your local post mail service is not reliable and you would like to get your card by DHL instead. They will charge like 60$ but what can we do !!

    You said in the post that you were struggling to find a valid payment method. So I mentioned a prepaid credit card. Often these prepaid credit cards can be used digitally as in you don't need to have the real card. You'll have a digital account, digital number and stuff.

    I'm not entirely sure though thats why I said you should look it up. Don't blame me if I'm providing wrong info I'm just tryna help :p

    One does not simply leave his country, but I am considering leaving it and will start planning if some good stuff does not occure. Maybe Egypt or Morocco. I just have to ensure my living there till I can earn some income through IM.

    good suggestion, but I will think twice before doing so.
