As a teacher, how do I receive payment?
A+ Teacher will send money to your PayPal account. You will be required to pay the money transfer cost. A+ is located in Hong Kong. The payment is transferred from Hong Kong to you in USA. Paypal charges 3.5% higher for exchange fees than normal banks since A+ Teacher exchanges your payment from Hong kong dollars to US dollars. In addition, PayPal charges about $5 USD per transaction. As an example, A+ Teacher sends $784 HKD ($100 USD according to the banks exchange rate in 2019/02/28) to A+ Teacher PayPal account.

This is the case, even though PayPal has a lower cross-country money transfer fee than other methods.
