Apple Pay comes to Pakistan
Freelancers across Pakistan can mow use their SadaPay’s business account (SadaBiz) and receive payments via Apple Pay.
The announcement came as part of SadaPay’s first ever SadaSummit held last Friday at COLABS. The event was attended by IT industry veterans, thought leaders in the freelancing ecosystem and early adopters of SadaBiz. In addition to the Apple Pay announcement, the agenda featured panel talks and fireside chats full of optimism for the future of Pakistan as a global freelancing hub. The payment volume via Apple Pay is four times greater than PayPal’s, and is growing at an exponential rate.
Another major reveal from the event was their brand new initiative – SadaSchool.
According to their CEO,Brandon Timinsky, this is a service to the Pakistani youth brimming with talent. The free platform consists of Masterclasses that take you from beginner to expert as a freelancer and a Discord community built for peer support and mentorship. They’ve built a network of experts and thought leaders in the space who host regular workshops to share their learnings on graphic design, copywriting, programming and other high income skills. With SadaSchool, SadaPay’s goal is to enable Pakistan’s digital generation to make a significantmark on the global gig economy.
“Our vision is clear: the future of work for Pakistani youth lies in freelancing,”
says Brandon Timinsky, our CEO at SadaPay.
“The integration of Apple Pay is a monumental stride in realizing this vision. This initiative not only unlocks employment prospects for our skilled youth but also plays a crucial role in remitting valuable foreign exchange into Pakistan.”
