Q&A: Are Writers in Pakistan (and other countries) Disadvantaged?

Question: The problem with me, in my opinion, is my location (Pakistan). I have applied to several paying markets, [such as] Sisters Magazine, received a response (they asked me to send in a sample of my writing) and then…poof! No word from them again. What is your opinion? Most paying markets in North America or Europe send money by wire transfer, Western Union, Paypal, or cheque, and when these payments are sent to Pakistan, they cost more i.e the payment process becomes expensive for the payer. Do you think employers in the West prefer writers based there for this reason?
