So, TL;DR: I’d love to enable people to pay me by card, similarly to how Monzo.me works, but from (pretty much) any country. Does anyone have any suggestion?
For background: I have family on almost every continent of this world. We often order things online for one another.
When I need to pay people abroad I usually use transferwise, and it works a treat for almost all currencies and countries.
Sadly, the other way isn’t always so easy, and especially my family from Egypt often carries large amounts of cash with them when they come to visit us, as not even PayPal works well over there. I’d love to get rid of that.
Does someone know of a way that I as an individual can accept card payments internationally? Similarly to monzo.me, or Starling Settle Up, but much more flexible in terms of allowed countries? I’m quite happy to pay reasonable fees.
I even thought of signing up for stripe, but then I need to create a plausible looking website for a business first
