It’s a lazy day here in Craig, Guyana and I feel a little better about my banking woes. And no, before you even think it, I don’t feel better because my woes have ended. Rather, I’ve discovered Payoneer.com.
Perhaps, I should get my friend Kester Clarke a cake if Payoneer works for me. I’ll have to review it later for you (after I’ve completed the application process and I’ve ensured that it works). Basically, Payoneer is supposed to mail me a Mastercard that I can use to withdraw funds from my PayPal account. After that, I just stick said card into an ATM right here in Guyana and finally I’ll get my hard earned money.
I’ll also write a “How to” article for you later today about getting your own PayPal account here in Guyana. Of course, many of you probably have one but I’ll have to tell you the downside and it isn’t even PayPal’s fault!
I’m sipping coffee as I write this and I’m trying to explain my banking issues to Nani. Here’s how our conversation is going so far:
Me: I won’t get my Payoneer card until the end of next month probably.
Nani: I don’t understand these things. Internet doesn’t make anything easier.
Me: It’s the banking services here…
Nani: You should relax.
Me: No, I shoulda made brooms to sell like I told you.
Nani: You’re right. You would have money now. Come look some spending money.
Me: No, no, I’m good.
Nani: You always good. You walking to Georgetown today?
Me: No. But I got savings.
Nani: I have all my teeth. Look.
Sharing a quick moment with you while I’m on the go.
