Hello community

Even when the incoming in this business is less and less each month, for me this is still a profitable business, but this question is not about me.

China situation is getting harder and harder, my good friend is in Hunan province and due to quarantine she is not able to go out from her house. Few weeks ago she was able to go out for food, but now all the stores are closed and the only way to get food is to buy from internet to those government-enabled stores and wait for the delivery. Goverment dont allow them to go out and if police found you on street and you don't have a good reason to be there, you can have serious problems.

The issue is money and food... she have some rice reserve at home and she also have some extra money to keeping buying food online, but if the quarantine is extended things can get ugly.

She is not able to work in the traditional way so i was thinking for her to uploading some illustrations and vector illustrations to ShutterStock; her designer abilities are not at proffesional level but much better than the average of what is currently uploaded by contributors.

The only problem is that i dont know if it is possible to be SS contributor from China. Actually the only way to get access to "western" internet from China is by using VPN. I also dont know if it is possible for Chinese people to get the money by Paypal.

Do any of you have experience in this and could you give me some feedback?

She can add any paypal address that will work, maybe to friends or family working abroad?

They can then send her the money via Western Union or whatever payment system works for her.

There must be Chinese language groups on social media where she can connect with other artists and ask them what works.

The other question: maybe there are stock agencies in China that she can work with?

Good luck to her.
