How it works for freelancers

Freelancers indicate, in their ProZ*Pay account settings, their preferred method of receiving payments. (This can be changed as their location or situation changes.)

Payments are issued in the amount and according to the timing indicated in the payer's instructions.

Freelancers can request withdrawals each time a payment is received, or they can allow amounts to accumulate before withdrawing. (See video for more)

Benefits to freelancers


Freelancers are able to manage personal payment preferences, choosing bank transfers, PayPal, Payoneer,, Skrill,  Remitly, cash pickup, cryptocurrency and more.

Usually, freelancers get as much or more money than they would have otherwise received (because the most desirable payment method for them is being used).


Payments often come in faster (because of the dedicated ProZ*Pay team; payers in translation companies are not necessarily dedicated full-time to payments).


If the freelancer has a question or problem with payment, he or she can contact a staff member and get a timely response. Open support request here
