      • Happy to!

        And regarding payment, payoneer is preffered because of the better rate (350/$) compared to PayPal (320/$) when exchanged to naira by selling to Exchangers and importers.
        Also, payoneer dosent have problem like PayPal.

        So all in all, have a skill and be good at it. Have patient and pray for grace.
