If you live outside North America or Europe,
If you go with the first option (assuming you find someone you can trust in the U.S. who also understands the legal and financial implications of partnering with you), you’ll have to awkwardly ask for your money to be transferred each week or month.
Good luck growing a successful business using this method. If you go with the second option, then your customers are forced to prove they’ve paid you for work each time.
That’s how “proof screenshots” sent to emails were invented. If you intend to sell to many people, the last thing you want to do is to force each customer to manually pay and then prove that they paid 🤦🏾♀️
FOCUS ON YOUR EXPERTISE AND THE REST IS DONE
No more "We're sorry but your location is currently unsupported at this time..."
I’m a Nigerian entrepreneur, business coach, and six figure course launch agency owner. In 2015, I moved to the Caribbean on a full-ride scholarship to study medicine.
Between 2015 and today I've gone from losing a scholarship due to lack of financial support and getting kicked out of my apartment to building multiple businesses and platforms selling services, consulting, as well as digital products.
But my journey was never smooth.
I needed to make some money. I needed to at least be able to pay the light bill in the house I was staying in. But there was one problem… I couldn’t receive payments in the country I was living in. No PayPal, No Stripe, No Square… Nothing! And sadly, no alternatives either.
After a little research, I found out that some other virtual assistants were using Payoneer to receive money online. I was so excited because it meant that my business could actually start making money.
In the first month, working over 15-hour days, 7 days a week, I made $150. Looking back, I remember being so excited to actually receive the money and hold it in my hands.
In no time, my skills grew, and so did my prices. In 2019, I was making over $5,000 a month regularly. But I still had one problem.
You see, I still couldn’t sell anything online. With Payoneer, I still had no payment gateway. That means I had to speak with every customer and send them an invoice before I could receive money.
This automatically put a limit on the growth of my business. Any model that requires you to trade time for money and leaves no room for automation is very difficult to scale.
I HAD TO get a payment gateway.
None of the tutorials, advice, tips or tricks that I found online would work for me. Paypal and Stripe were NOT available in my country and I was left to look for my own solutions.
I discovered that if I registered my business in the U.S. as an LLC, I would immediately have access to the payment gateways I wanted. I was very happy because it felt like I had finally made progress.
My happiness turned to sadness when I tried to actually start the registration process and all the agencies I reached out to were charging ridiculously expensive fees.
Stripe Atlas was another option, but it was application only and the waitlist procedure was taking too long.
In quarter three of 2019, I decided it was enough and I started to do my own research. I finally figured out an affordable solution to getting my LLC registered legally in the U.S. and activating my Stripe and PayPal Business accounts from right here in the Caribbean that’s why I can sell online today
I also took the privilege of documenting exactly how I did so and everything I needed to get it done. Then, I perfected the process by helping a few friends do the exact same thing.

A payment gateway is very crucial for any online business. If you are living in a country where you don't have access to payment gateways like Stripe and Paypal, you know the pain you have to go through. Belema's course is absolutely a lifesaver. She shows you how to get a Stripe account for non supported countries. Valuable course. Thanks Belema!

You will find a lot of people on the internet talking about creating Stripe accounts or Stripe access without company formation.
Please I urge you NOT to listen to these guys.
They borrow other people's account details to verify accounts for you. It feels like a shortcut until you lose money due to banned accounts and frozen funds.

The LLC FORMULA was very helpful seeing as I didn’t know how I could get an LLC from outside the U.S. I got all the information I needed and I registered my LLC successfully and quickly.
