Pakistani Fintech firm SadaPay recently declared that its freelancing-focused business account, SadaBiz, will now support payments through Apple Pay. This development, aimed at enhancing global payment accessibility for freelancers without hidden charges, was unveiled at SadaPay’s inaugural SadaSummit at COLABS. The summit, highlighting Pakistan’s potential as a global freelancing powerhouse, saw IT experts and freelancing advocates discuss prospects and unveil new integrations, including Apple Pay.
Freelancers in Pakistan often navigate hurdles like limited market access and awareness, restricted international payment avenues, and insufficient training. Introducing Apple Pay, known for its extensive user base and massive payment volume, simplifies these global transactions, connecting Pakistani professionals with international opportunities.
SadaPay’s press note emphasized Apple Pay’s edge over traditional platforms like PayPal, boasting a larger user base and quadrupling the payment volume. Furthermore, SadaBiz’s expansion includes Google Pay integration, mirroring Apple Pay’s global adoption trajectory and significantly broadening the freelancers’ reach.

The summit also saw the launch of “SadaSchool,” an educational initiative offering Masterclasses and an interactive community for skill enhancement. Through Discord, freelancers access peer support and expertise in high-demand fields like graphic design and programming.
SadaPay CEO Brandon Timinsky envisions this platform as a vital service for Pakistan’s talented youth, preparing them to contribute substantially to the global gig economy. “The future of Pakistani youth is in freelancing,” he asserted, acknowledging Apple Pay integration as a key advancement towards this goal.
