My name is Adnan, I belong from Lahore, Pakistan. Here I am sharing my personal experience regarding an internet base website that helped me to get in touch with my family a few years back, when I went for higher studies outside Pakistan. After completing my graduation from Punjab University Lahore, I applied for MBA in LSE (London School of Economics), I was lucky enough to get admission in that privileged institute in the UK. I applied for a study visa after my admission and got it in a few weeks thanks to my higher bands in IELTS and my visa interview was also good.

So, in the summer of 2013 I flew to the UK for my higher studies in the prestigious London School of Economics. As I heard a lot of things before reaching and myself experience life in the UK especially in its capital London. Initially I struggled to get used to life routine there and one thing that people told me before was absolutely spot on that it’s very costly to live in a city like London. You have to pay heavily for your accommodation even if it is shared with someone; food is also not that cheap you have to spend substantial money on these necessities of life to survive in London. Furthermore, one more thing that cost me a lot was making phone calls and sending SMS to my family back home in Pakistan. I use to spend a sizeable of my savings on making phone calls and text messages to my family and friends.


Then one day one of my colleague who was also from Pakistan told me one about a website available over the internet for anyone to access and send free SMS in Pakistan. I could not believe initially after coming to know about this sort of free web service that permit its user to send SMS to mobile number in Pakistan. That day as soon as I went home after classes and my job hours I turned on my computer and open that website about which my colleague told me and while surfing I came to know that you just need to register once with a valid mobile number working in Pakistan and that’s it. Afterwards, you can log in to this website and keep on sending free of charge, unlimited SMS to any network mobile number in Pakistan Isn’t amazing to a service like this online.

Wrapping Up:

After that day I was relieved, as far as the communication with my family and friends was concerned. As I use to send lots of free SMS directly to my desired mobile number in Pakistan and even receive replies too from the recipients of those free SMS’s. This helped me in saving sizeable money, which I then used to live a comfortable life during the course of my studies in UK. Furthermore, it aids me psychologically as well as was felt comforted every time I use to make contact with my family and friends to share things which I wanted to using this free SMS sending website.

Pakistanis should keep these things in Mind before doing Umrah!

As the umrah is the second most sacred pilgrimage for Muslims after Hajj that can be carried out at any time in the year – whenever the prospective pilgrim wants to. Therefore, it’s up to the will of umrah goers to select the best time in accordance to their convenience to perform this holly worship. In Pakistan’s where there are countless Hajj and Umrah tour operators and service providers operating it some time becomes difficult to find the best umrah packages from the trustworthy travel agent with actual facilities on the ground.


Yes, it’s true that even with the religious pilgrim service providers for Umrah and even for Hajj disguise few things from their customers – and some even promise false facilities to their clients at the time of booking, which then not at all provided to pilgrims in Saudi Arabia. That’s, when these pilgrims have to suffer a lot. These false promises by some fraudulent umrah travel agencies comprises of accommodation far away from the Haram Sharif in Mecca and Madina, absence of pledged room, food and traveling services.

Therefore, to safeguard yourself from these truth less umrah service providers operating in Pakistan always stress upon booking your umrah package from a reliable company. This will not only to cure you from fake services while your umrah, as well as save substantial money. Because, the non-reliable travel agencies who promise fake facilities – also charges for these, which eventually makes the umrah package more costly.

So, always try and search for a better Umrah service provider in your city, for this getting suggestion from someone, who has recently performed umrah. On the other, one can always take advantage of the internet in this regard – for finding the best affordable or 3, 4, and even 5 star umrah packages. Also, various package rates depend upon days to stay in Saudi Arabia as well, apart from their offered facilities. Normally, the days stay offered with different umrah packages in Pakistan comprises of 15 days, 21 days and 25 days. But, anyhow any prospective umrah pilgrims can extend their stay by paying more for their travel on per day basis.

Furthermore, it’s also worth mentioning here that airline tickets also make an impact on Umrah package price, for the reason that various local and international airlines offers various ticket tariffs depending upon their reputation and class. Thus, prospective umrah pilgrims has all the options to make their travel comfortable by selecting the best umrah package with all services included – off course then the cost will depend on their selected package too.

How to withdraw money from PayPal in Pakistan?

It’s not difficult to have a PayPal account in Pakistan. Many of the foreign vendors, buyers, clients and companies prefer to pay you through PayPal. If you still are deprived from the benefits of PayPal, then you must read this guide on PayPal in Pakistan, and learn how you can make a verified PayPal account in Pakistan. So, once you have earned enough bucks from a freelancing site that meets the minimum threshold to pay you and withdrawn the money in your PayPal account, the next thing is to somehow convert that money into Solid Cash.

withdraw money from PayPal in Pakistan

Well, today I am going to share three different methods, two of which are quite easy and simple, while the third one is a bit frustrating but is dominant of the later.

1) Withdraw Money from PayPal using Payoneer

To withdraw Money from PayPal in Pakistan using Payoneer, you first have to make an account on Payoneer and order your MasterCard. Afterwards you’ll be verifying your PayPal using Payoneer, and attaching the US payment service account with PayPal account. Next you have to follow the below steps:

  • Login to your PayPal account.
  • Click on withdraw money.
  • On the next page you’ll see the US Bank account that you’ve already attached to your PayPal.
  • Unfortunately, through this method you can only withdraw $500 per month. So, if the payment exceeds $500, you have to wait for another month to withdraw the remaining amount. In this case there is a risk that PayPal might limit your account and you might possibly lose your money. However, if you use your account properly, nothing will happen as such.
  • Once done, PayPal will load your Payoneer account within 3-5 business days. PayPal will also deduct 2-3% withdrawal fee.

2) Withdraw Money from PayPal by Exchanging

If the money in your PayPal is over $500 and you need to withdraw all at once, you can utilize the services of a trusted PayPal exchanger.

How Exchanging is done?

  • Let us suppose you have $1000 in your PayPal and you need to withdraw all of the money. Of course, we can’t withdraw in Payoneer as PayPal limits us to $500 per month.
  • Now, find a trusted PayPal/e-Money exchanger.
  • He’ll offer you a rate of 92-95 PKR per dollar. Now you may ask why he isn’t giving the current dollar rate. Basically, he deducts his fee for exchanging your money and also securely transacting the cash in your Bank account.
  • Finally, you will send $1000 to the PayPal account of e-money exchanger, and he’ll send you cash after deducting his reasonable fee.

3) Foreign Help

If a friend or a family member of yours is a resident or lives in a foreign country where PayPal services are open, you can request him for a valid PayPal account. Whenever you receive money from freelancing sites in PayPal, your friend or family member can easily withdraw the entire sum in their local bank accounts.

Now, you can request them to send the cash via Western Union or give an International Transfer to your local Bank account.

I hope you’ve got some handy ideas on Withdrawing Money from PayPal in Pakistan. All you have to do is implement any of these 3 methods, which you think suits you the best.
