Sending and receiving payments nationally or internationally is a necessary part of any business. Usually, people use their bank accounts to perform this task, but those who are buying and selling products or services Online need some reliable service that can be their friend in their business transactions.

PayPal is popular, and mostly people use it to send and receive payments Worldwide, but now it’s a norm that people are ranting on different forums that PayPal made their account limited; that’s the dark side of PayPal because they do this when an account holder sends or receives significant payments.

I think it’s entirely unfair because we are here to do business not to follow their verification procedure after every few months. After deactivating my PayPal I moved to Payoneer, that’s also popular among people, and it’s now more than a year I’m using it, so I decided to write a review of Payoneer for my readers so they can understand what’s the best option these days.

Important: If you create a Payoneer account using this Registration Link, You’ll get free $25 bonus when you load $100 in your Payoneer account.

Payoneer Detailed Review [2017]


Payoneer is designed to provide Online transaction services to its users. The users get a Payoneer MasterCard, and they can use it just like an ordinary plastic card issued by their bank. It was founded by Yuval Tal and the birth year of Payoneer was 2005.

What Services it offers?

Payoneer Services List

Your own International Bank Account: Yes it’s possible. You can receive payments from international companies; Payoneer account holder gets his personal account identification and routing numbers, and that user needs to provide this detail to businesses that want to pay him via bank account. It’s just like your own US based bank account. But unfortunately, you can’t receive payments via wire transfer and from individual account holders to your account. So no need to open a bank account in the US, that’s almost impossible for nonresidents.

Payoneer US Payment Check

Note: Payoneer will only deduct 1% of the payment you’ll receive, that’s the lowest as compared to other Online payment services providers.

Blessing for Internet Earners: Many freelancing platforms including Fiverr, Amazon and Upwork are supported by Payoneer. Online money makers had a problem in receiving their earnings when Payoneer wasn’t there, but now marketers, freelancers, and other Online earners can receive their payments directly in their Payoneer account and withdrawal process is hell easy.

Important: Indian freelancers can save up to 42% service and conversion charges by using Payoneer because they can get their freelance earnings in Indian Rupees directly in their bank accounts.

Free of Charge Transactions between Payoneer Accounts: Among all features I like this one the most, if receiver or sender have Payoneer accounts then no charges will apply to transactions. Even a local bank charges for this kind of interbank transactions but Payoneer is unique and surprising one.


Get Money in your Local Bank Account: You can also transfer money from your Payoneer account to your local bank account and then you can quickly withdraw money. Once I moved $5k from the UK to my country using money exchange services, and I paid $400 as transfer charges, that was a huge loss to me. But Payoneer charges a low fee for it.

Payoneer Mastercard: I Signed-up for Payoneer because of this MasterCard. This one is the most powerful thing in Payoneer. Payoneer provides its account holders with this MasterCard, and the user can use this card on any ATM in the World to withdraw cash, and also he can use this card for Online payments. I used it to buy SEMRush and Long Tail Pro, and I bought both tools in just one click. The Strange thing is that where my local bank’s VISA card doesn’t work, Payoneer works like a charm.

Payment Request: Just like PayPal, you can request payments from other companies. It’s just like an invoice for your service or product.


How much “Payoneer” Charges?

Annual Charges: As account maintenance charges Payoneer deducts approximately $29.95 per year. But you can pay only $4.95 if you signup with this link because you’ll get a bonus of $25 by signing up with the above link, but after adding $100 to your account. In simple words, signup with the given link and add $100 to your account and you’ll get $25 extra.

ATM Charges: On every transaction you’ll be charged $3.15.

Other Charges:

  • But there is no limit for money if you’re receiving it via US payment service.

  • You can maximum withdraw 5000 per day($/€/£), and the amount could be different for different countries.

  1. This company is a scam; they are stealing and withholding many people’s payments without reason and customer service will not help anyone. Stay away from this company if you value your money, time and relationship with clients that are paying you. Payoneer has stolen $1,100 USD from me.

  2. I’m using this service since 2014 and without any doubt its one of the most convenient service I’ve ever used. Using it with PayPal but most of the time Payoneer. Ordered one more card for my relatives also yesterday by using the method added in this post. thanks anyway.

  3. So, let’s do a full review of Payoneer. I applied for a Payoneer Master Card two month ago, It wasn’t fast, and my first card didn’t arrive in time.After one week of waiting, I asked the support via e-mail, but they didn’t answer me for another week. So I tried to ask them via chat, but the chat Isn’t available at this time, or the chat is full. After six days of waiting and clicking the chat button, I finally could get In contact with the support(It’s easier to contact Aliens than the Payoneer support). At this time I ordered my Card with DHL, but It costs me around 40$. It’s expensive, but my friend Payoneer told me that I’d get 25$ when I signup for their service(I asked the support, but didn’t receive anything, even If I clicked the right URL), but this isn’t the biggest problem.So firstly let’s talk about the biggest problem in Payoneer for me:

    1) I lost 130$ and didn’t get them back, I made two transfers to my bank in Ukraine, and I asked the support seven times because of this. Everything they told me is to wait three days, and they’ll send me an email. I didn’t receive an email in 3 weeks.
    2) This problem is connected with the support.If you want to speak or chat with them, you must wait for 20 – 40 minutes. Before I chat with them, I wrote a ready text with my problems. But somehow they didn’t even read It and ask me from a copy/past text. After I answered twice, they’ll tell me that I’ll get my 130$ in 3 days in a very bad English (my isn’t better, but from a company in the USA I’d wish more).

  4. Hi ,

    Thanks for the great review, Yes payoneer helps you to get money easily. In some point of view payoneer is far better than paypal.

  5. Biggest scam ever!!!, stay away

    I opened an account, started to receive payments from my clients, kept the money there because I thought it was a legit company, then, they did the worst back to me
    first thing, they blocked my card for no reason, i just went to withdraw some money using this card they deducted 2$ and blocked it for no reason
    second thing, a client sent me a payment, they kept it in hold for 3 days then I asked him to call them, he called them, they lied to him and told him that i’ve received the payment already, he kept calling me a scammer and I did the same and then we logged into eachother’s accounts using team viewer to see what’s wrong, I realized at that point is that payoneer is A BIG SCAM nothing more, they LITERALLY stole my money and scammed me, they took the money from the client’s account, sent him a confirmation email saying that payment was approved, and when he contacted them, they told him that I have received the payment already.

    I contacted their lame support ( WORST CUSTOMER SUPPORT EVER THEY HANG UP ON ME) the indian douchebag answered and told me that my client has to call back for details, my client called them and sent me all details he asked, then he told me sir i cannot help you with anything at the moment i understand your frustration but you have to wait forever like i cannot give you any time, just keep waiting.

    And they come here in the website write more teasing replies to the people’s reviews telling them that it’s because of the security, no its not about security.

    It’s all about Payoneer being the worst scammers ever, I will pay every single cent I made and i will make in the future to give them bad reputation everywhere online and I just hope that someone would shut down this scam bank very soon.

    I will keep posting my experience everywhere online and will buy domains just to shut them down and give them bad reputation for scamming the f*** out of me!!


  6. Using Payoneer since I started my online reputation business and honestly its works smoothly I withdrawn $10,000 in the last 6 months without having any issues. I would strongly recommend Payoneer to all the business owners.
