They support sending money to Mexico, and I think it is a popular choice for expats sending money to themselves here in Mexico, from US accounts. But as far as I know, they do not support Mexicans receiving USD into a TransferWise account. The service which supports holding funds in a virtual USD account is what they call TransferWise Borderless (mentioned by the other poster). That's what you would need. You may be able to get a Transferwise account, but without the USD support. Unfortunately, I think you're back to square one.

I have looked into this extensively for work purposes, and these types of services are hard to find for Mexicans. But maybe it'll work if you register as a USA citizen with a USA address.

Yep, confirmed again, no Borderless Accounts for Mexicans that manage dollars. Bummer.

Man, the list of alternatives just keeps getting more and more dismal. I'm down to 2Checkout (I think they don't allow dollar transactions for Mexicans, waiting to confirm) PayU and Payza, though the former seems to have poor customer service and the latter seems to charge heavy fees. Sheeeeeeet!

And of course there's Bitcoin, which I'd like to avoid if possible.
