If you are concerned about how can clients pay for your services, here are seven ways to collect client payments while studying abroad.

1. PayPal (www.paypal.com)
2. Escrow (www.escrow.com)
3. Google Wallet (www.google.com/wallet)
4. Square (www.square.com)
5. Western Union (www.westernunion.com)
6. MoneyGram (www.moneygram.com)
7. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

Please note that in many cases, payment processors charge one or both parties a fee for handling the transaction. As such fees are not standard from one company to the next, it can be worth shopping around before deciding on which payment option will be right for you and your clients. If you and your clients are comfortable sending and receiving payments through one of the cheaper options, you could end up saving a lot of money in the long run.

Freelancing is a great way to earn money while studying abroad. Thankfully, no matter which type of freelancing work you specialize in, there are several reliable ways you can be paid for your services. With so many payment options available, freelancers should have no trouble collecting client payment while studying abroad.
