Basically, businesses or companies do the outsourcing, and freelancers provide the services that those companies are trying to outsource. Let’s try to understand with an example.
Suppose, you are the owner of a company, and you need manpower for a job, but, due to lack of manpower, it is not possible to do that job with your own employees.
Or, the cost of hiring your employees exceeds your budget. That’s when you thought of outsourcing the job.
You have various outsourcing platforms for that task. For example, Upwork, Fiver, People Per Hour.
Business wise it can be either of two objectives. Although the previous example mentions both things. That’s how it is.
This means that you want to outsource any work to save time, to do it at lower cost, or to avoid hiring someone permanent for temporary work, for any reason.
However, there is a tendency to cut budgets and get things done without hiring new people.
And in terms of freelancing, freelancers basically propose companies to provide their services, or outsource work.
Meaning one outsources to get work done, and freelancers outsource to get work done.

3. Getting the work done quickly: Freelancers always try to work within the deadlines. Because skilled people get jobs regularly. So as soon as they can finish one job, they can start working on another client.
4. Intermittent work: Another advantage of outsourcing work is that freelancers work at any time. On the other hand, office workers have to take leave on public holidays. But freelancers don’t have to pay any vacation.
On the other hand outsourcing also has some disadvantages. Let us know some disadvantages to remember in outsourcing.

We all know that many of us are faced with many pitfalls when it comes to withdrawing money earned through outsourcing or freelancing. However, if you learn the right way to withdraw your hard-earned money wisely, you will have no worries.
Although we will discuss a few ways here, you need to know more about it. And we will also discuss why we need to know that. Let’s get started.
Actually when you work under any platform you need to know about the payment process of that platform. Which platform has a specific policy on how freelancers can withdraw money. It is different for all platforms.
For example, in the case of Upwork, you can withdraw money directly to the bank account in Bangladesh. But in this case the limit is a little lower, and the fee is a little higher. You can withdraw a maximum of $8000.
Also you can withdraw your money from Upwork through Payoneer. Either the bank or Pioneer, in both cases you will incur some costs or fees, Upwork will deduct a fee and Bank and Pioneer will deduct the fees.
Also, if you want to withdraw your earnings from Freelancer.com, you can only withdraw through the Express Withdraw system. Besides, this platform does not support any payment process that supports in Bangladesh.
Also, read carefully about the payment process of the other platform where you are working as a freelancer. And see if there is a payment process that Bangladesh supports.
Otherwise, you may face a lot of trouble while withdrawing your money or you may not be able to withdraw your hard-earned money.
