The Age of ICT DIY Making Your Own Electronics

이번에는 'Opensource Hardware(오픈소스 하드웨어)'에 대해 소개해 드리려 합니다. 이제 누구나 프로그래밍하고, 자신이 원하는 가전제품을 직접 만들어 사용할 수 있는 세상이 머지않았습니다! 프로그래밍이 모니터 밖으로 나와 이제 우리가 일상적으로 사용하는 전자제품까지 어떤 영양을 미치게 될지 알아볼까요? 박종건 선임과 함께 하는 Opensource Hardware 이야기 오늘부터 시작합니다~!
Opensource HW <1> 나만의 전자 제품을 만드는 ICT DIY 시대

여러분들께서는 가전제품에 대하여 어떻게 생각하시나요?

대부분 이미 만들어져 있는 것들을 비교하고 나에게 가장 적절한 기능과 가격대를 선택하는 물건으로 생각하고 계실 겁니다. 하지만 자기가 필요한 전자 제품이나 기구를 직접 만들어서 사용할 수 있다고 하면 믿을 수 있으신가요? 농담이나 미래의 이야기가 아닌 이미 현실화된 이야기입니다. 무언가를 만들기 좋아하는 '메이커(Makers)'들은 세상에 자신이 원하는 제품은 나와있지 않다는 생각으로 본인들이 직접 전자제품들을 만들기 시작했습니다. 여기에서 핵심적인 역할을 담당하는 것이 Opensource HW입니다.

올해 봄 ICT 분야의 세계적인 명사들이 참가 한 서울디지털포럼 2014에 뜻밖의 인사를 만날 수 있었습니다. RaspberryPi 재단의 공동 창립자이자 케임브리지대학교 컴퓨터학 교수인 앨런 마이크로프트가 연사로 한국을 방문한 것이었습니다.

그는 포럼에서 ‘모두를 위한 일상의 프로그래밍’이라는 주제를 발표했습니다. 앨런 마이크로프트는 오늘날 젊은 세대들이 스마트폰, 태블릿, 인터넷이 없는 시대를 상상할 수 없고, 너무나…

How To Withdraw Your Fiverr Funds From Anywhere In The World easily

How To Withdraw Your Fiverr Funds From Anywhere In The World Easily

If you’re interested in learning how to withdraw money from Fiverr, then this guide will show you how to do just that.
A Fiverr seller recently emailed me saying: ‘how can I easily withdraw my funds from Fiverr.’ I provided answers to her via email and then decided to help other sellers interested in making withdrawals from Fiverr but don’t know how to go about it.
There’s this ecstatic feeling that comes with withdrawing your first earnings. It gives you that believe, confidence and hope for a better future in Freelancing.
After your first withdrawal, the zeal to work extra-hard and make more money on Fiverr becomes even stronger.
Before going on with this guide, you need to know if you are actually qualified to withdraw from Fiverr.

When does Fiverr payout?

After the completion of your job, there’s a compulsory wait period. This is a measure to avoid or resolve any form of dispute that may likely arise between buyers and sellers.
The wait periods are:
  • Top Sellers: 7 days
  • Every other level below top-seller: 14 days
Now, I’m certain you’re not a top-seller. If you were, then by now you must have withdrawn over $500,000 from Fiverr.

Withdrawal methods

Fiverr allows up to Four different withdrawal methods, which includes:
  • Fiverr revenue card: Using this method attracts a static fee of $1 irrespective of your withdrawal amount, and funds will be received within 2 working days. If you’re interested in receiving your funds within 2 hours, you have the option to choose that during withdrawal; but this time, it will attract a fee of $3 irrespective of your withdrawal amount. The minimum withdrawal amount using the Fiverr revenue card is set at $5. If you have a Payoneer account, then your Payoneer MasterCard serves as your Fiverr revenue card.
  • PayPal: You’ll be charged a fee of 2% from the withdrawal amount up to $1. The minimum withdrawal amount using this method is set at $1.
  • Bank transfer: Attracts a fee of 3$ irrespective of your withdrawal amount. The minimum amount you can withdraw using this method is $20.
  • Direct bank deposit: This method is only available to Fiverr customers who own American bank accounts; which can be gotten from Payoneer whether you stay in the US or not. It is the best and most recommended method of withdrawal for people living in countries not supported by PayPal. Using a Direct bank deposit attracts a fee of just $1 irrespective of your withdrawal amount; the minimum withdrawal amount for this method is set at $10.
Those are the four methods you can use to withdraw from Fiverr. Among them, my most recommended method of withdrawal is “Direct Bank Deposit”. It can be done using a Payoneer bank account.
Payoneer is accessible all over the world and is a partner company of Fiverr. So, even if you don’t reside in the US, you can register with Payoneer today and get an American Bank Account.
Another good thing about using Payoneer is that you get to enjoy a bonus of $25 for the first $1000 deposited into your bank account.

How to withdraw money from Fiverr using Payoneer

Method 1. Using Payoneer Direct Bank Deposit

If you don’t have a Payoneer account, then you need to create one before continuing with your withdrawal using direct bank deposit. If you already have a Payoneer account, then you can skip to step 2.

Step 1. Create a Payoneer account

Creating a Payoneer account is very easy. All you have to do is visit Payoneer using this link. You will be required to enter a lot of information – that shouldn’t be a problem. If you get stuck along the way, you can follow my Payoneer account creation guide to put you through.

Step 2. Login to your Fiverr account and then click on Selling>>Earnings

click on sellings and then earnings

Step 3. Select Bank Transfer as your preferred withdrawal method

Step 4. Verify your phone number

Since adding a withdrawal method is a very sensitive process, it’ll be required of you to enter a verification code. The verification code will be sent to the phone number with which you verified your Fiverr account. Enter your verification code and click on Submit Code.

Step 5: Click on the link found in Confirmation Email

Fiverr will send you an email asking you to confirm your account linking. Click on the link to get started with the account linking process. It is advisable to use the same browser where you’re logged in to your Payoneer account.

Step 6: Login to Payoneer and confirm Fiverr linking

The link in the email will redirect you to the Payoneer website. Log in to your Payoneer account and confirm that you really want to link your Fiverr account with your Payoneer account.
After your account is linked, you will get a confirmation email from Payoneer telling you Fiverr has been added as your payment source.

Once linked, you can head back to the selling>>earnings page on Fiverr. You can then withdraw your money using the bank transfer method.

Method 2. Using the Fiverr revenue card

What is the Fiverr revenue card? it’s like your regular debit MasterCard that can be used on any ATM service point worldwide. Like I said earlier, Payoneer and Fiverr are partner companies. So the Payoneer MasterCard serves as your Fiverr revenue card.
After creating a Payoneer account, it may take a few days before the card is processed.
The Payoneer MasterCard is free; however, it is required that you have a minimum of $30 before your card is processed. Your Payoneer MasterCard can serve so many purposes; including as your Fiverr revenue card.
Note: You cannot link your Fiverr account with Payoneer using both method 1 and method 2; it’s either one or the other. So, if you prefer to use your Payoneer MasterCard, follow the guide below.

Step 1: Under selling>>earning, click on Fiverr revenue card
click on Fiverr revenue card as prefered withdrawal method

A popup will appear asking you to check your email for further instructions on adding your Payoneer MasterCard, which serves as the Fiverr Revenue Card.

Step 2. Clink Email link to confirm Fiverr and Payoneer MasterCard linking

Confirm Fiverr and Payoneer MasterCard linking

Clicking this link will redirect you to Payoneer website. Where you’ll be required to login in order to complete the linking process.

Step 3. Confirm Fiverr account linking in Payoneer website

If you already have a Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard, then to the right of the page, click on the link you are provided with to connect it to your Fiverr account.
You should also get a confirmation message telling you your Payoneer MasterCard was successfully linked with Fiverr.
After account linking, you can always visit Fiverr and under Selling>>Earnings, click on the Fiverr Revenue card as your preferred withdrawal method.
