For hosts outside of the United States, an international wire transfer might be the best option. However, additional fees might be applicable depending on your bank and location.


PayPal is another popular choice among hosts because of its convenience and ability to work in various currencies. Ensure that your PayPal account is verified before using it as a payout method.


This global payment platform allows users in many countries to receive payments via direct deposit or prepaid Mastercard.
