Setting up your Redbubble account without Paypal doesn’t have to give you a headache!

So, you’ve got your designs up and they look awesome on your chosen products! But to get your Redbubble store open to the public, you have to select a payment method. Redbubble will ask for your PayPal or overseas bank account details. But this is no problem if you reside within the US, UK, Australia, or Europe. However DesignerMim is based in South Africa. Many colleagues have warned me that PayPal is not the most affordable option. I have a South African bank account only. However, if you bank with FNB perhaps PayPal is the best choice for you. It’s a seamless process and FNB are there to help you along the way. Having said that, I don’t bank with FNB. And from a profitability perspective, I had to find an alternative method to the mainstream system. So how do you get paid by Redbubble if you don’t have PayPal?

So what are the best options for Redbubble without PayPal?

As a result of learning how expensive PayPal is as a South African, I went about looking for a more affordable alternative. A few colleagues recommended numerous platforms which I explored. I am acutely aware that everyone’s needs and constraints are different. So have a look at the options below and decide for yourself whichever suits your individual needs. If you’ve found a different method that works for you please let me know in the comments below.

So how do I get paid by Redbubble when I don’t use PayPal?

It’s simple. I chose Payoneer.

Firstly, Payoneer is straightforward to set up and pretty simple to link to your Redbubble account. In addition if you have an account with Payoneer, you automatically get access to several international bank accounts. This means you can invoice in multiple currencies! Awesome hey? Therefore, you will receive international payments from Redbubble via Payoneer. You just open an account with Payoneer, link it to your local bank account, link it to Redbubble, and viola, you’re up and running. Well, kinda. See my clear steps below!
