I'm sole proprietor from Russia. I make projects for US companies. We working fully remote via internet. I'm not US resident.
When I try to suggest wire transfer for paying my job my customers don't want to use this solution and they suggests me to use PayPal, payoneer etc third party services for making payments. But I can't use them and be legal in my country.
And of course, I suggest my clients to make B2B contract so they have legal reason for US tax service why they send money outside the country.
I know that international bank transfer is expensive and it cost about $30-40. I can care about this and include this amount to total bill. For example, project costs $1000, where $960 payment for my job and $40 for bank transfer.
But I think bank commission is not only one reason why customers suggests me to use another ways to make payment. Maybe wire transfer takes a lot of time for paperwork or something else.
Can you tell me please, is it really hard to make international wire transfer for payment my job and can I resolve this problem without using third party services?
