Hi guys

Quick question.
I live in the US and thinking of hiring an offshore worker and using PayPal to pay them.

I know some of you guys have done this already. Had a couple of questions.
1: How much of a headache is it?
2: Did you have to file 1099s/other paper work for offshore workers?
3: Is there a better way than PayPal?

I do have a chat with my accountant hopefully next week but I want to hear about your experience from a business owners perspective.

PayPal only works for certain countries. It doesn't work in Pakistan, so I have to use Xoom (owned by PayPal). Hiring overseas workers is pretty convenient once you get through the communication issues. Make sure you get invoices from the people you send money to for recordkeeping.
