Business / Re: EXCLUSIVE : How To Make Level 2 Seller On Fiverr In A Month As A Nigerian Seller by Dandy1(m): 4:18pm On Nov 04

Normally it doesn't. The client did an extension on his end. That's what CS told me. Also, deliveries outside the order page could create issues should an argument come up between you and the client. The order page keeps it organized too.

Lol. Shey you dey wind me ni? I've been on fiver for over half a decade with over 1k orders. "Make another delivery" extends auto complete time automatically. There's no way the client can extend the completion time on his end without going through you by opening a dispute to extend the time. The CS that attended to you might be high or is a noob, or maybe it's you that misunderstood him/her.

I made a delivery to a client which should have the 3 day acceptance period clearing yesterday. However, I made an additional delivery yesterday only to have the acceptance date increased to the 15th. Normally, this shouldn't have changed the date.

Take Note.

Normally, it would affect it. Next time you want to make such additional deliveries, submit it as an attachment in the chat area of the order. That way, you don't alter the auto complete time.

Business / Re: Upwork Thread (Questions/Help/Advice) by Dandy1(m): 11:40pm On Jul 01

I don't think you need to DM, this is public information and I'm sure someone else would probably DM to get same info

I would probably be banned for posting the link, but googling the gtb domiciliary account would point you to a link with the requirements.

The requirements are the same for most banks except the initial deposits which is usually $100 for most banks but $0 for GTB. The banks have this information on their websites

From the GTB link(Copied and pasted)

Also, the savings domcillary accounts are easier to obtain(GTB doesn't have it) because the reference forms aren't needed and I think they should work fine also with payoneer
They do have some limitations, I think they don't allow direct deposits over the counter(You can't deposit raw dollars into them yourself) and they don't have cards.
You can't visit any bank's website for more information on their dormicillary account offerings

Thanks for your swift response. How about the withdrawal. One withdraws raw dollar cash to exchange at BDC or Street rate right?


Business / Re: Upwork Thread (Questions/Help/Advice) by Dandy1(m): 11:02pm On Jul 01

last withdrawal was exactly a month ago.

Yes they do charge, especially if its huge( like 500+). Its usually about 1 - 2% of the amount and I'm not sure its GTB charging it, I think its the intermediary banks

Sometimes they don't though, for smaller amounts

Hey bro!
I'm really interested in having you give me more tips on cashing out Payoneer funds via GTB's domiciliary account. Normally I shouldn't need this, but Payoneer disabled Payoneer to Payoneer transfer on my account. I have tried all I could to get them to restore it, but they won't.

I have been really shortchanged over the years using their direct bank deposits, when I should be selling the dollars at black market rates on Binance and paxful for maximum gain.

Can you please list the requirements for opening a dom. account with GTB and how to finally cash out/convert to Naira for maximum gain? If you don't mind, I can DM you for more conversational chatting. Thanks
Business / Re: Upwork Thread (Questions/Help/Advice) by Dandy1(m): 10:49pm On Jul 01
I belong to this closed group for freelancers in my niche and recently many people have complained of account bans. Mostly Africans and Asians. The Africans were quick to play the victim card. Claiming Upwork is out to eradicate freelancers from SubSaharan Africa. But further investigations showed they violated Upwork’s T&Cs. The most recent being acting as tools for money launderers. Yes, they launder money via client and freelancer accounts.

- Another interesting thing is the budding romance among freelancers. I would never have guessed people could meet foreign partners via Upwork groups, but one happened o. Normal normal na. Anywhere man and woman dey, things must occur.

- I had an argument with this Asian chick. I wasn’t even referring to her anyway. Just dropped my opinion on the obvious bias against Africans and she took it personal. Started shit-talking Nigeria. I don’t know which of you broke her heart. She seems to be very knowledgeable of Nigeria and Nigerians. She go dey alright… grin

Y'all doing all those group and shit on Upwork? I never really got a hang of the PITA platform. Seems no matter what I do, I can't really gain ground or get really established on there. It's way easier to get started on Fiverr than on Upwork because Fiverr algorithm kindda supports a new entrant for a period of 2 weeks to one month to help you get a foothold. Plus the UI is user friendlier.
As long as your gig description is good and you're good with the SEO keywords relevant to your niche, you're on your way to excelling on Fiverr.

But that Upwork's shitty*, no matter what I do, it ain't yielding. I was quick to get approved and get my first work on there. I even bought lots of connects when they first started selling and kept bidding, but no way. I guess the 2nd client which I got immediately after the 1st f'ckked up my streak by making an order and not submitting the file to work on. I messaged the mofo like cray, she didn't reply until the order expired. So I just lost interest in the site, since I was doing great on Fiverr already. Even had my hands filled.

I might try it again someday soon though.
Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 5:45pm On Dec 05, 2021

You made a valid point here... No reasonable importer in all d markets in Lagos at present, declare d actual worth or quantity of goods imported... My advice, just pay up and pick your goods. Ensure you do d needful next time by pleading with the shipper to under-estimate d worth of the item before shipping.

I reached out to the seller. He actually devalued the item even though I didn't request he should do it. He said he put in the invoice.
Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 5:40pm On Dec 05, 2021
Your purchase exchange rate is N407.
They must have used the parallel mkt rate in their own calculation. Just guessing anyway

No, I think what those guys do is go online to Aliexpress and search for the item to get the price. In my case I was unlucky because they miscalculated another superior version of what I bought. The names are almost the same with just difference of 2 letters. There are 2 versions, the costlier one was what I was charged for. When I calculated the 202k they estimated, it was exactly the price of the more expensive version. See pictures below.

Business / Re: Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 5:20pm On Dec 05, 2021

I suppose they employed their dubious "Customs Valuation" as against the item's actual worth during Duty calculation.
They do that a lot.

Just get the item's invoice and any other supporting document that could establish the actual amount your purchased it and ask the Courier company that shipped it in to send same to the Nigerian Customs for a re-evaluation of the applicable tariff.

It will be reviewed.

Thank you. I already submitted a letter of request for revaluation to them, but from my findings it seems that hardly works. I am awaiting their response while I look for money to pay, in case the levy is not reduced.

No vex sir... Go there and beat them all up

Ha! O ga o. With people like you, this injustice will be encouraged. You think if Nigeria produces a usable equal to what I ordered, or even something close - I would have bothered myself ordering from abroad? So whenever we buy things we can't get locally, they should slit our throats for it right?

There is nothing you can do OP just try to negotiate with the person in charge there...this happens not just in Nigeria alone but in almost all African countries

Ha! That's really crazy. Do you mean one has to pay about half the price value of what you ordered in order to get it. You are definitely wrong and are encouraging this unjust exploitation. Who does that? Pay half the prize for duty? It wouldn't even happen in North Korea. Even Kim won't be that heartless.

Business / Exploitative Outrageous Duty Charges By Nigerian Customs by Dandy1(m): 8:15pm On Nov 29, 2021
I couldn't find a suitable sub-forum for this topic, so I used the general. Kindly patiently read through, if there's anyone that can help - please kindly reach out.

I'm going to be apt and sincere here. So I ordered a musical studio equipment on the Aliexpress 11:11 sales day. The total sum I paid for the item at checkout was $280(114k naira). Free shipping was part of the deal, so it was mouth watering. Normally, I would have used the service of Nairaland trusted shipping agents like Justi4jesu, but she doesn't do Aliexpress the last time I checked.

Fast forward to today, I was called to come pick up my parcel at the local post office. The item was stated on the listing to be shipped through 'Aliexpress standard shipping', I don't know how it ended up in the care of EMS. I reached there, and some sort of invoice was brought out. The attending agent looked at the papers for a moment and told me I would be paying about 39,600 for the clearance. What!!!

I couldn't believe my ears, so I told her to please pass me the document for observation. I saw the estimated value of the item was put at #202,000 naira. How come? It stated on the paper that the custom duty was 10%,which is #20,000. Plus all other trumped up charges, it summed up to #39,600. Plus 1k5 for shipping from Lagos, over 40k. That's about $100, using the current official exchange rate.

I bought a $280 dollar item and I'm being charged $100 for collection? That's like 43% of the value. Even if I am stinkingly rich, which I am not; it's insane to pay such amount. It's like buying a 1milli worth car and paying 430k to clear it. I am an obedient citizen and all, but inflating the price of the item I bought just to cash out big through tariff screams corruption to me. I am very sure just a fraction of the amount will be remitted to government coffers.

Please if there's anybody who has an idea how to go about beating down this obviously outrageous charges, kindly help out. I can print out the issued invoice on the bought item as proof of price if there's a need. Thanks.

Lalasticlala and other mods, I will be glad if this can make front page for more awareness of this unjust situation. Thanks

I make money literally everyday from designing.
Once you are good, then you're good to go.

You get referrals. In fact na you go tire.

I don't use upwork / fiverr nonsense. Lots of competition.

I get most of my clients from nairaland! Yes, clients full here. Both home based and foreign clients..

If you want to learn how to design. Send me a DM (P.S NOT FREE)

LOL. You are short changing yourself. If you are as good as you said you are, then you have more chances of making more money with foreign clients. Nowadays, I catch my clients on freelance sites and take them out of there.

Working from home is sweet, my neighbours think I'm into yahoo or something. �

You see this snooping, any time the topic comes up at work, my colleagues always say I am dulling. They be like “babe check!”

One of us was forming baddest guy, a veteran snooper told him to calm down, that if she touches that his iPhone, she will tell him things.

He gave her the phone, she was like, “Why are you always going to Fola Osibo after work, who lives there?”

Omo! The guy was shouting. “Show me how you got there. Show me what you pressed. Babe abeg, show me!!!”

That's only because he puts on his phone's GPS location and also grants apps permission to use it. The dude is not tech savvy. That kind trick can't work on some of us tech smart ones.

This is particularly good for music production and sound engineering. Hence the display on the fourth picture below which has Ableton Live, Hu-he Diva and other plugins on.

You can for instance open FL studio on one tab, open the mixer on another, open the Playlist on one, the step sequencer on one and plugins(effects and instruments) on the rest. No need to dey open and close windows every time, you have have every interface right in front of you. Faster workflow.

I know of a record label that paid Oxlade 1m or even more just for him to feature on their artistes song. Do you know how much of that he makes per year from such features alone?
