Startup Trouble: Selling your product!

  1. You have other options to choose from. You can use wire-transfer which costs lower. But there are significant delay from wiring to deposit. Payoneer on the other hand is almost instant.

  2. I wonder if we really are that much unfortunate never to be able to enjoy PayPal at home.

    off-topic: My $120 is hanging on oDesk. I could ask for Payoneer Debit card but it requires a voter ID card which I don’t have. Any suggestions if I can withdraw the money?

  3. Well few days back I told few professors that whatever you do, end of the day you have to sell. They guy did not agree with me, got mad at me. See, if you don’t cry, mother will not give you milk, so from the very first day you have to sell. It could be your product, it could be yourself. So face the fact that end of the day you have to sell, whatever you do 🙂

  4. Nice post Hasin vai, specially for the startup. We need the PayPal and other easy services accessible from Bangladesh for doing something for the country.

  5. Wire transfer or transferring to moneeybookers might be a good idea.

    I could transfer it to moneybookers but how do I transfer it to my own pocket from moneybookers? I never really get if any site even accept moneybookers payment. I’m really stuck here. 😦 Please help.

  6. Sorry your first experience with Avangate was not what you expected and thank you for your feedback. For what it’s worth, we have just launched some enhanced capabilities regarding subscription, just what you needed basically.
    Avangate offers payments to vendors via wire transfer, PayPal, Payoneer card and check.

  7. Useful stuff, sir. What might cause fresh starters a lot of mistakes, nail biters, anxieties and moreover waste of money, reading this useful posts for start ups will give ’em a huge advantage, no doubt. Hats off for your efforts!

  8. What I gathered from reading lots of articles and posts:

    • 2CheckOut – They call your customers number and asks them whether they got the product you promised and yes they do it often which scare’s the customers and to register, you need a credit card, the charge is pretty high.
    • Plimus- Like 2checkout they also call your customers sometimes to make sure you are really selling products and charge is higher than 2checkout from what I know.
    • Avangate- This one is new to me, this one looks good. The charge is low and they accepts paypal payment from your customers which is a huge plus. Only drawback is they only pay you by wire transfer, check or Paypal. If you take check it will take approximately one month to cash out the money, if it is paypal…. well you know..
    • FastSpring- FastSpring is the best of this list. They are almost perfect. I only read good words about them from the users. The only drawback(at-least for me) is they don’t allow you to sell website templates. :/
    • ShareIt – This is a DigitalRiver service… I don’t trust them…. Just google “DigitalRiver scam” and you will know what I mean….

  9. What possible way can we use to transfer money outside Bangladesh? Most of the times we rely on someone who resides abroad and has an international credit card. Can you give me any suggestion?

    1. Yes you can. Although I will suggest you not to do that. because the of the government’s new tax policy the bank will cut of f 15% of what you have transferred.

      You can send it straight to your Payoneer master card. You can apply for it from their website. it only takes 2 days to receive money to your payoneer card and you can withdraw money from any atm of of the world. You can also shop online with it.
