Dear fellow authors,

I’m an author from Pakistan, I’ve got information from the 3 local banks in Pakistan, and all of them said they cannot accept any transaction made from abroad through a company. So for example if anyone withdraw money from Envato through SWIFT transfer, they will return the transaction because they cannot accept it.

Is there any author which is using SWIFT transfer to Pakistani bank? If yes, which bank allows that? If SWIFT is not acceptable, which method is suitable?

Thanks for the help.

If SWIFT is not working, check out Payoneer (card) or Skrill (also has a card).

I think you might need Dollar Account for SWIFT transfer. Or use Skrill instead.

I have asked from the Meezan Bank, I have account in US$. They said that it is ok if the sender is a person, but if the sender is a company then they will not allow it. They said this requirement is from the state bank. Also same response from the Habib bank.

Can you guys tell which bank you are using for the SWIFT transfer?

I think this is just silly, what about pakistani companies working with US companies, do they need to use payoneer card too, LOL, try standard chartered bank and see what they say about this.
