https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Payments_Interface

has anybody heard of this system before?

I don't understand teh economic implication and goals fo the indian bourgeoisie with this
It sounds too good to be true for now, How is this different than whatever method the US Google Pay and Apple Pay
use

When the Ukraine War happened and SWIFT shutdown Russia, Were they still able to use their internal country's payment systems, If I use Google Pay UPI and something like that happened would I still be able to use domestic payment

Digital Payment is so confusing and feels hella insecure but it's the most convenient too,

It's the same as the bourgeois of every other country, if you control cash you can control people invisibly.
Here in medellín the metro only let's you in if you have a card and with that they basically banned people on precarious situations from ever using the trains.
Now with payment services like those you mention business can soft ban poor people.

So are Credit Cards >>> Debit Cards?
If you don't get addicted to shopping and are responsible with it?


You get

>Porky's money to play with

>If any farud happens, porky has to worry, your actual money is safe still and can use to buy food
>You get benefits

Cons
<Easy to get money lust and fall into debt trap

I don't have a job but some money, if I get one without an annual fee, I'll get one because I don't see myself as spending what I don't have

I just want the additional security that my debit card doesn't offer

Credit card churning is a legit way to make free money. Sign up for cards with sign up bonuses, get the bonus, close the account and move onto the next card. There are lots of tutorials on the web about credit card churning.

Wiring is a name for transferring money directly from one account to another over a long distance and in a short amount of time.
It comes from the days of telegrams which helped facilitate long-distance banking.
Wiring is used for personal transactions or larger business transactions mostly; if you're buying something retail you'll probably use a debit or credit card where there's a middleman like Mastercard or Visa handling all of the details, or something like PayPal or Stripe.

 No.30899

I've used them, and they're exactly what you expect.

Honestly? They're not going to be a "living" unless you manage to leverage them into social media/audience.

So if you're thinking about it, just do it for the experience and be proactive. Create a portfolio and reach out to people you want to make stuff for, give them a freebie/gift.

And minmax your price, like $300+ for good work you create, and like $13 for cranked shit your just AI or copy. 30% payment upfront always to filter out the scammers.

You want fewer but better customers/clients that you can, in the long term, pivot or leverage into getting off those sites.

The only way I can think of making fiverr profitable is just finding some free programs online to do a task for you in like a minute or under and then listing it as a service on fiverr.

Thank you anon. I'm gonna give them a try. I'm just looking to make some money on the side, as I live in a third world country with high inflation and can barely make it to the end of the month. Turning it into a full time job would be a long term goal but I don't know if it's plausible.

Yes I work on Fiverr. Make around $1-3000 a month.

I do mainly copy editing. The admin fees are insane (20%) and they even garnish your tips too. Very difficult to organise against it, because at the end of the day it's all about your position in the stack so if you get thrown off and have to start again, your rating and position starts again too, which means starting with low prices and having to work your way up.

Fiverr, you set up your "stall" and let clients come to you. Upwork is the reverse, clients put up a job and you and a hundred others swarm with offers. You can get work on upwork, but it's a demoralising after sending so many offers and getting nothing. Both are very alienating platforms on the whole though, but it does allow me flexibility and work from home.

As the other anon said, It's imperative to get your clients off the platform, but you've got to be sneaky about this. Posting in the chat box, "hey give me your email so you pay me direct" will get you thrown off the platform, but "can we have a quick chat on zoom to go over your order" and then during that chat, if you have a good relationship, let them know that it'll be better for both of you if you can pay direct.

Also, when you do get a regular client, you can charge them MORE for each order. If they like you, then you're taking out the hassle of them having to search for a worker each time they have a job. So, I would think of first orders like an introductory offer and then raise the price after, when they start asking for custom orders etc. This works better with serious business people than individuals.

It's more of a general sense. The thing about fiverr is that you have people looking for high quality work for the lowest possible price. Like I said, if you're a business finding the right people is a task in and of itself. Individuals want a cheap job in and out. Businesses want that too, but if they want repeat orders will realise the value of paying more for the right person.

Droppin a hot money minting cash cow- a lot of you anons with spare time on your hands can make bank by being a chad leftypol litigator troll.

A lot of companies will just settle for half or so whatever you sue them for in small claims. Its barely 200 or less to file and you can sue up to 4 times a year. If you sue 4 times for 10k each, you can have more savings than the average burger in a year. Some companies have arbitration/mediation clauses which are different from regular court (they are even easier).

All you have to do is gather or drum up 'evidence' which is basically just gathering all documents related to a transaction. For example if you're renting a place, plant some evidence of pests or other hazards and sue them for it after you get evidence the landlord did nothing. To be truly based sue your landlords, airBnB, banks, Google, any enemy of the left etc. For example I intend to arbitrate with aBnB for 10k after they didnt return some of my money.

If you wanna be a real chad, self study law and sue them in actual civil court and self represent for yourself to save money. They will shit themselves because hiring a lawyer costs a shit ton and will be eager to settle.

To get started go on your local courts websites and see what documents are available to file. Then file the motions, affadavits or whatever to build a case and sue the shit out of some capitalists. Report back here when you win.

If you win a judgment, freeze their bank accounts to collect whats owed to you.

If I ever end up broke, my plan is to do this full time.
