Earning from blogging is great way to earn passive income. Nowadays different brands are now looking for ways for their advertisement to be shared online. It is not hidden to all readers that we do accept advertorial post in this blog, to sustain hosting and domain name expenses. But ofcourse we put our own views and comments.
There are many ways that a blog owner can be paid, in Saudi Arabia possible ways are through Payoneer, Western Union, Paypal, Bank Transfer and more.
Today my client, tried to send payment via Western Union. I immediately went to Western Union to get my payment. After falling in line for more than an hour, I was informed by the teller that my ID name is not the same as what was shown in their system and so I ended up not getting my money today.
Tips on Receiving Online Payment
1.) Make sure to send your client the exact name that appears in your National ID.
2.) Western Union will not release your money if the name that appears in your national Id and in their system is not identical. In my case the sender missed to put my middle name as shown in my National ID.
3.) If there is any other option to receive payment, do it, even if you pay an extra amount just to receive the payment.
4.) It is always preferable to receive payment via bank transfer or online payment system.
So another lesson learned, I do hope that my client could change my name easily and not to have any trouble in getting my online income. As an additional reading you might be interested to know how to make money online via clickbank.
