Earning through Facebook in Pakistan
As mentioned above there are 2 ways to earn in Pakistan through Facebook. Details of both are mentioned below:
1. Facebook Marketplace
You must have seen popular brands like Beechtree, Khaadi, etc offering their catalogs on Facebook. They add their Instagram or website link and allow customers to inquire through messenger.
That way, customers can view their products, and make online orders. While Facebook doesn’t offer a payment method, you can choose “cash on delivery” or visit the brand’s website to carry out the online payment.
As a beginner, if you want to earn online, starting your store on Facebook is a great idea. You can use local payment methods like Easypaisa, jazz cash, account transfer, or “cash on delivery”.
The best part would be that you will get a lot of exposure in the vast Facebook community.
Also, you would be able to benefit from the marketing tools available on the platform.
2. Registering Through a Foreign Company
According to Samaa News, video monetization becomes possible if a Pakistani user hires a foreign company in countries including UAE and Singapore. These companies apply for monetization from their region.
The process is effective but it requires investment which might be hard for new content creators but still is worth considering.
While Facebook Monetization has not been allowed by Facebook in many regions including Pakistan, there are still ways to earn.
You can use the Facebook marketplace to display your products and then use a local payment method. Using Facebook allows you to reach a global audience and offers great tools to set up a stunning store.
Along with these, hiring a company abroad to get monetized is another great alternative. Although a bit expensive, if you want to earn well on Facebook, you should try it out!
