How do you receive payments from abroad for online English lessons?

I have been teaching online english for a little while from UK to people in China, but which is the best way to receive payments without losing too much money to fees? I know about Paypal, but is there anything else?

Paypal is probably your best option. It's quite easy once you have your account set up.

I have been using PayPal for years as it is convenient to use.

Recently though, someone mentioned Transferwise to me as a good alternative. You might look into that.

Apparently it's based in the UK:
