We are pretty new to this and we were wondering. What would be the easiest to withdraw your earnings? Via SWIFT or trough Paypal?
The only downside with paypal is they take 4% (is that correct?) of for transfer fees and that your account could get freezed.
Does SWIFT mean that it is basicly like a normal bank transfer (with BIC code etc)? And does it (like paypal) get processed on the 15th of the month or sooner?
Depends. If you are taking out a large amount.. 700$+ Id suggest to use shift since it charges you 35$. For instance if you withdrawn 1000 with paypal you will get charged: 1000×0.05 = 50$ instead of 35$.
Hope that makes sense
Yes that makes sense! And does it transfer from the moment you request it? (E.g. a week or so?)
There’s no paypal charges, Envato cover it, though you will get shafted a tiny bit on the exchange rate if you’re account isn’t set up for USD
EDIT: payday is the 15th of the following month
Great! And what about the paypal freeze account stuff we have been hearing?
Paypal can be horrible I know, personally I’ve never had any issues
Same here, never any issues with PP in 4 years I use them.
