4. How to earn money from home in Pakistan?

One of the most convenient and easy ways to earn money from home is to start freelancing. The best part about freelancing is that you can offer any service suited to your personal talents. For instance, websites such as Upwork, Freelancer, Elance and Fiverrr allow writers to submit bids to clients for various works. The lowest bid is chosen by the client, who then pays via stored details on the user’s account. The only catch is that the website, such as Upwork (formerly known as ODesk) takes a portion of the earnings. For instance, Upwork charges 20% for any amount totaling $500 and 10% for any amount under $500. However, given the steady stream of work that pours forth from these websites, as well as security and guarantee of payment, it is quite worth it.

Another option is to join groups on Facebook for Pakistani Freelancers, but these are quite a risk. A good way to avoid risk is to ask for 50% advance payment on submission of 50% work, and then for the remaining payment when you submit the remaining 50%. It is also advisable to get a Payoneer USA card made in order to receive international payments. Getting the card made costs nothing at all and can be used in virtually even ATM machine in Pakistan.
