If you run a business or work freelance, you can add bitcoins as a payment option. It’s especially easy if you have an online store, thanks to the many plug-ins and service providers that integrate bitcoins into the check-out process. You can use free tools to do this, such as for Wordpress, WooCommerce, Shopify, or Prestashop, or you can commission payment providers who can convert all or part of the bitcoins you earn into your desired currency, upon request.

As a freelancer, you can easily receive payments through a bitcoin wallet. You don't even need a bank account to do so. The best part: You can receive payments from all over the world without obstacles, currency exchanges, or delays. Payments that often involve enormous effort are made extremely simple thanks to bitcoin.

Even if your client isn't interested in paying with bitcoin, that’s no problem. There are service providers who automatically convert payments from local currencies into bitcoin before sending them to you. That means a freelancer based in South America or North Africa, for example, can charge dollars and euros for their work – but get paid in bitcoin. This eliminates many of the inconveniences that often come with international payments.

Even full-time employees can receive their salary in bitcoin. Just register with a service provider to have part or all of your salary converted into bitcoin.

There are also many other ways to earn bitcoins. For example, some cashback services refund a small part of your online purchases into bitcoin cashbacks. If you run a blog or otherwise have an internet presence, you can add an affiliate link that converts part of the income generated from those links into bitcoin. Depending on your audience, you can also add a bitcoin address under your blog articles to receive donations from readers.

There are also several alternatives to Patreon where your fans can support you in bitcoin. Tallyco.in partly pays in bitcoin, Bitbackers pays in Bitcoin Cash. These and other alt-coins can be exchanged for bitcoins through online exchanges, often without needing to register or undergo verifications.
