If your country is not supported by Stripe (check the list: Is my country supported by Stripe?), we recommend that you open a digital account in a country supported by Stripe as USA. One of the options is to create a Free Bordeless account on Transferwise.

What is TransferWise?
TransferWise is a payment platform, very similar to PayPal that allows you to create an account in another country, even if you don't live there. When you open a TransferWise account, you may use it to open a Stripe account, even if your country is not currently supported by Stripe. In short, you can open a Stripe account using information from your TransferWise account.

Can I open TransferWise account for my company or business?
Yes, you may open a company/business Borderless Account with TransferWise using your business registration number and/or tax identification number assigned to your company in your country. You may also open a personal account. However, as a freelancer on Tutor.id, we recommend a company or business account.

So, what should I do?
Create a Free Borderless Account based in a country in Stripe's List (i.e. USA) and then register this account on Stripe as explained in this article: How to connect to Stripe in 10 steps:

When you receive payments from Stripe, they'll go directly to this account. You can then transfer your earnings to your own bank account in your own country.

This is just a tip for those who wish to use our platform but cannot connect to Stripe due to country restrictions.
