359: The Payoneer Freelancer Income Survey 2018
Payoneer is a global payment company that helps businesses and professionals all around the world grow a global business. the company work with everything from sole proprietors, freelancers all the way up through some of the largest companies in the world such as Amazon and Google, Airbnb and many others.
Typical clients are businesses that are digital and become very global, very quickly and need to pay lots of suppliers around the world. Essentially Payoneer is in the business of shrinking the world, making it easier for anybody to go global and pay or get paid anywhere in the world.
The tech company recently surveyed over 21,000 freelancers from 170 countries worldwide about their experience, their background and their earnings. The report reveals average hourly freelancing rates of the freelancing community, to better understand what drives price in the market, and learn how to help freelancers increase their value.
I chat to Payoneer CEO Scott Galit about the following big talking points from the report:
- Which freelance fields earn the highest (and lowest) fees
- How age, education, skills and other factors impact your earnings
- How freelancers worldwide manage their work week
- How satisfied freelancers are with their income and freelance work
At Payoneer, Galit sees every day how technology and the internet are creating exciting new business opportunities all over the world. Millions of entrepreneurs, professionals, small businesses and digital platforms are actively building global businesses in this new world of opportunity. Every day, he also witnesses the challenges these businesses face in getting paid and making payments across borders.
Galit is passionate about how the world is shrinking around us and becoming a place where resourcefulness, talent and hard work matter more than where a business or entrepreneur is located. By connecting entrepreneurs large and small with the rest of the world, Payoneer enables businesses to overcome the barriers they previously faced with cross-border payments.
