Sri Lanka is an island country that is situated in the Southern part of Asia, below India. Online work is gradually becoming popular in Sri Lanka with an estimate of 17,000-22,000 freelancers according to LIRNE asia. In Payoneer, we’re all about empowering locals to go global so with the online career potentially growing in Sri Lanka, we want to support them with a local approach. Since 2014, we’ve had several Payoneer Brand Ambassadors all over the world – Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Ukraine, Spain, etc. and now in Sri Lanka!
We are proud to announce that we have chosen Lasantha Wickaramasinghe as our Payoneer Brand Ambassador for Sri Lanka.

We are happy to have him onboard!
