Freelancers Demand New Government to Bring PayPal to Pakistan

PayPal is a viral online payment platform that makes it incredibly easy to send money abroad.

The American company was founded in 1998 and operated in several major countries worldwide, but not in Pakistan.

At the time of writing, PayPal had more than 400 million users worldwide and generated more than $25 billion in revenue per year.

Local freelancers have always denounced the lack of PayPal in Pakistan, but now the issue is attracting attention again. #PayPal is trending again on Twitter, with thousands demanding an official launch in Pakistan.

The tweet also cites a 2019 CNBC article showing the ten fastest-growing freelance markets. Pakistan was the fourth name on the list, with a 47% growth in self-employment earnings year-on-year (2018).

The latest trend comes amid the recent change of government in Pakistan. The PMLN’s Shehbaz Sharif has replaced former Prime Minister Imran Khan, and people are taking the opportunity to demand the changes sought.
