Company Information and Credibility


Company size:  

Payoneer was founded in 2005 by Yuval Tal, who was the CEO at the time as well as the lead investor. Mr. Tal is a prominent Fintech entrepreneur, and prior to Payoneer , he founded E4X, one of the first startups in the online payments domain, which was later re-branded as  BorderFree, and was acquired for a staggering sum of USD 380m by Pitney Bowes Inc in 2015 .

Since its inception, Payoneer has been receiving serious attention from leading investment firms across the globe, and raised more than USD 90m up to date, from companies like Ping An – a leading Chinese insurer which employees 200,000 people across the globe and generates more than $60bn in revenue each year.

Using these investments, the company has grown to become a leader in cross-border payments, boasting more than 10 global offices and employing 660 people (many of which deal with the complex compliance / legal aspect of the business). It is moving abroad billions of dollars each year, and serving more than 3m registered clients.

 


Regulated By: 

✓ Financial Services Commission (Gibraltar), ✓ Customs and Excise Department (Hong Kong), ✓ Money Transmitter License (Most USA states).

The Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard card is issued by Choice Bank Limited, which is supervised by the main bank of Belize. It is handled by Payoneer’s partner Wire Card Solutions which is authorised by the Financial Conduction Authority (UK) as an e-money transmitter.


Awards and Media Recognition: 

Payoneer has won some of the most lucrative awards in the payment business, including

  • 🏆 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2016 – For Scott Galit (CEO)
  • 🏆 B2B Innovation Award 2016  – PYMNTS Innovation Project
  •  🏆 Deloitte’s Fast 500 (Fastest Growing Companies) –  2015
  • 🏆 CNBC 2018 Disruptor 50 List – #13

… and many more (smaller) industry awards.

Payoneer is constantly featured on mainstream media and Fintech conferences, as well as specialist payments / commerce magazines. Major publication include: The NY Times, Fox News, Tech Crunch, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Inc. Magazine, Fortune Magazine, Wires, the Daily Star and many more.


Conclusion: 

Considering the information provided in this section, as well as the fact that Payoneer’s board include some of the heaviest hitters in the business, like SWIFT’s former CEO, it is certain that Payoneer is a safe and reliable company, and not a fraud or a scam or any of that.

Any suspicion that Payoneer is not legit would have deterred companies like Amazon or Google in partnering up with them.

 

How Does Payoneer Work?


The fundamentals:

Payoneer provides an innovative solutions for both private and corporate clients who need to receive payments from abroad. The way they operate is via the creation of collection accounts abroad for each client. Any payment deposited into an off-shore account is translated into the local currency as defined by the Payoneer client, and then can be wired to his bank account or alternatively, be withdrawn through any ATM with the Payoneer MasterCard.

payoneer-process


Positive:

Here are the biggest advantages of using the Payoneer system:

  1. Easy to sign up. Completely online on-boarding process.
  2. A very simple solution that doesn’t require a lot of overhead attention. Once a client has been approved, he will automatically receive access to all available currencies, and be able to use any available bank account abroad.
  3. It simplifies the payment process also for the payer. In fact, there are more than 200 prominent freelancer and ecommerce marketplaces (like Amazon, Google, Freelancer and Upwork) which already have Payoneer as one of the default payment solutions.
  4. Payment processing is almost instant.
  5. Invoices are automatically generated through the Payoneer system.
  6. Clients are able to wire the money they have received on their Payoneer account back to their local bank account, or withdraw it in cash through the Payoneer MasterCard. In fact, this is a huge advantage for developing countries where banking systems are corrupt – you don’t even need a bank account in order to use Payoneer.
  7. The Payoneer MasterCard can be used from almost any location around the world.
Negative:

Here are the cons of the Payoneer system:

  1. You can’t send payments through the Payoneer system (with the exception of businesses who can move funds to other business-owned Payoneer accounts).
  2. The Payoneer MasterCard requires an annual fee (more on that – on our fees and exchange rate section).
  3. The Payoneer MasterCard is a limited debit card which can’t be used for certain activities like gambling.
  4. Payoneer clients are limited to a subset of locations around the world where they can open a bank account.
  5. You are heavily reliant on the promptness of payments, which isn’t always up to par with the clients expectations, as reflected on our comment section below.

Conclusion:

Payoneer provides solutions which are simply unattainable by any other means. Online sellers who receive large payments from abroad have several similar alternatives, but when it comes to private clients, none of the foreign exchange companies we have reviewed on this website offers these sort of solutions.

In our opinion, Payoneer provides a PERFECT solution for people who receive their salary from abroad, as well as for businesses who get paid by overseas clients.

Payoneer Exchange Rate & Fees


1) Loading Fee – 1% of the money loaded into the card. This fee is waived for our readers who used our referral link.

2) Card Fees – Annual fee: $29.95, Card Replacement (if lost): $12.95, Withdraw funds: $3.15 per withdrawal + normal ATM sub-charges,  Balance Inquiry: $1,  Decline Transaction: $1

3)Bank wire fees: none besides recipient bank fees which are outside of Payoneer’s control.

4) Currency exchange charges: 2% above mid-market rate, lower rates for VIP clients. This fee is applicable for both card withdrawals and wire transfers.


Limits: There are no limits to receiving money with Payoneer. There are limitations for intra-platform payments which are available for VIP clients (more on that below).


Conclusion:

Payoneer’s banking fees are not the lowest we have encountered in this industry, but it’s hard to compare them with other companies reviewed on our website because the nature of their service is so unique. VIP clients, though, can get great rates if their volumes justify it.

Since the service is mostly geared to freelancers in developing countries, we can compare them neck to neck with Paypal, which is probably the most popular payment method in this sector:

Payoneer VS Paypal – Fees & Exchange Rates

Company Personal Transfer Fees (Paypal) / Loading Fees (Payoneer) Currency Exchange Fees  Withdrawal Total
PayPal 1% 3.5% Free to $5 4.5% and up to $5
Payoneer  1% (waived for our clients) 2% Free 2%
Payoneer VIP Free 2% or lower Free 2% or lower

As you can see from the comparison above, Payoneer is a much cheaper solution than Paypal for freelancers. It is also a cheaper solution than other ewallets.

For businesses/eSellers, Payoneer can be a great solution if you are eligible for the VIP program (annual trading volume of 100,000). You can view more online seller banking solutions here.

Global Reach & Service


Research:

  • Support availability: Telephone, Chat, and support tickets – available Mon-Fri in standard working hours. Priority VIP support for VIP clients.
  • Offices: USA San Francisco, North Carolina, Israel – Tel Aviv, UK – London, Spain – Barcelona, Gibraltar, Hong Kong, China-Beijing, India, Philippines, Japan.
  • Translations: Available in several languages –  Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Russian.
  • Accepts clients: Client acceptance is truly global. In fact, unlike other companies reviewed on this website which will not accept clients from regions like Russia, Bangladesh, India or China – they would happily accept them.
  • Currencies Handled: 150.
  • Time it takes to receive a reply: More than 5 days. We have read several reviews online and sent our mystery shopper through and it is verified that dealing with Payoneer is a long and possibly excruciating process.

Conclusion:

Payoneer has one of the most complete global payment solutions we’ve seen up to date. A very strong compliance and risk departments allow them to accept clients on a truly global basis, and even provide solutions to the “unbanked” (adults who do not possess a bank account or, alas, reside in countries where the banking system is unreliable).

Nothing can be simpler than accepting payments directly into a Payoneer account and using a dedicated debit card to withdraw it through the ATM, especially for people who reside in countries like Russia, the Ukraine, India, or any other developing/high-risk countries.

In addition to the fact they accept clients on a global scale and offer them with superb solutions, they have local bank accounts in many countries. Thus, the recipient of funds through a wire transfer can enjoy a domestic transfer of funds in local currency when he withdraws funds form the account, and skip the exorbitant fees applied by banks on receiving international wire transfers.

The only real vice is the slowness of service. It takes 5 days to get a response from support after signing up and it can take a whole month or more to receive your Mastercard debit card.

They have horrible Customer support. it takes them 5 business days sometimes to get bank to the customer. Chat is not helpful and makes you wait for the email for unknown period of time.

International call line does not work and it seems they are not planning to do anything about it. people complain and they either don’t respond, or respond and tell them to wait. It’s not clear how to withdraw funds from your payoneer account. you need to wait months (sometimes 8 months) to receive payoneer card. There are a lot of issues with bank transfers.

Additional Functionalities

– Mass payout: Businesses can pay multiple recipients instantaneously, while private clients can request to be paid by Payoneer automatically in many of the world’s most popular platforms (like Freelancer.com, upwork.com, clickbank, Amazon, Google, Getty Images, Lazda, Linion, etc).

– Billing Service: Request payment from a company by sending them a bill generated via the Payoneer system. Receive payments via credit card, eCheck or direct wire transfer.

– Tax form automation: The system auto-generates W-8 forms for all payments generated through it.

Pay other suppliers on Payoneer: Businesses with VIP status can pay their suppliers directly through the Payoneer system with no extra charges. For them, Payoneer becomes a multi-currency virtual eWallet and then can conduct all business without ever involving their bank besides withdrawing the funds at the end of the month.

App:

Payoneer has a fully functional mobile application for Android and iOS which is one of the most popular money transfer apps in the world. There are 100,000-500,000 downloads on Android’s Google Play alone.

The app allows Payoneer clients to check their balance at any time and perform necessary actions (like requesting a withdrawal), and is ranked 4.3 / 5 by more than 7,000 users, attesting for its usefulness.


Conclusion:

Payoneer has a high variation of solutions embedded into its platform. Businesses can pay thousands of recipients in one click in more than 150 currencies, and automatically get the necessary invoicing and tax forms which is a huge advantage.

Clients can get automatically paid into their Payoneer account with ease in almost every ecommerce or freelancer market in the world, and withdraw the funds in cash using their Payoneer Mastercard.

The only real vice Payoneer has is outbound payments which are limited to VIP clients who can only send to other Payoneer clients.

I paid an online seller in Spain with Payoneer and got confirmation from both my bank and Payoneer that the money had been taken from my account. However, 12 days later, the seller’s website is still showing it as not received.

The seller is not responding to questions and, for that matter, neither is Payoneer.

Buyer protection seems to be non-existent and I will NEVER use them again and I wouldn’t dream of recommending them. With paypal, it’s easy – I just raise a dispute but there appears to be no equivalent process in Payoneer.

LL

Having used both Paypal and payoneer payoneer for years I would say that they are basically the same in terms of what they offer and problems that come up when using their services.

However, when it comes to customer service PAYPAL win hands down. Paypal usually respond within the day and within hours to urgent matters. Payoneer take days and days to respond to even the most urgent of issues, often too late to do anything to resolve the problem

Gail Baker

Hi I used Airhelp with the recommendation from Martin Lewis website because I had a flight cancelled. The process has took 8 months, Airhelp have now used Payoneer to transfer the payment to me, I am still waiting from 24/11/16. Also beware Airhelp take 25% of the payout.

Maggie

Our company switched from ADP which was fabulous in that I got my pay on the exact day I was supposed to to Payoneer which means I now have to wait an additional 4 days for my pay. In this day and age what company has to take 4 days to make a direct deposit? ADP had no issue with it. Paypal has no issue with it. They tell me it’s my bank that is causing the issues but there’s no delay with other payment sources. Processing gets cancelled multiple times and when I ask about them I get told… Read more »

So, let’s make 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 1 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 6 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… Read more »

Payoneer is slow to process refunded orders, leaves them in PENDING TRANSACTIONS with a minus for returned fund – but does not return them to BALANCE. Weeks already. A rip-off card.

Patrick

Terrible experience with Payoneer… Subscription process was very quick, about a couple of hours. After receiving confirmation that my application had been approved , I sent out a few payment requests. As soon as the first payment arrived, I got an email from Payoneer, asking me to complete my application form! I thought it’d been approved. I quickly go to the website, answer a few more questions, then after 5 days or so, I get a reply that there’s a problem with my address and I need to send another proof of residence. I reply asap, explaining my situation and… Read more »

Scammers and they hang up on my phone call, they literally STOLE MY HARD EARNED MONEY! Keep away and I am ready to provide all evidence to anyone who would like to know how those scammers work, I have screenshots from my account and from my client’s accounts who called them and verified themselves and asked them to approve my payments but they still didn’t give a shit because they are scammers! 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… Read more »

John Fry

I was successfully receiving payments through Payoneer for a few months, then suddenly, on the day I was supposed to receive a payment of $516, I got the dreaded “Message from Account Approval Department” email saying that they needed more documentation. I sent more documentation but they still haven’t released my $516 and are not responding to my emails.

Vladimir

Sometimes they don’t even respond, thats how bad their customer support is. And although I know they are a legit service in other respects, and i received quite some payments trough them, interacting and navigating with their online service makes it look and feel like they have no idea what they are doing. It’s one of those websites that has not been updated for so long, that you have a feeling it’s gonna shut down any moment. The design and user experience is like a bad 2010 horror movie.

Otio

This company is marked with fraudulence, they said sign up and get $150 so i did, up until now, i’m still not getting that money, customer service said i have to received payments first but hey, the ad never says that!!!
this is the proof – {link edited, sorry we cannot allow links to potentially dangerous websites}

They blocked my account and wouldn’t tell me why because of “undisclosed” reasons.

Eava

Hi, i am very upset with Payoneer, all my colleagues were able receive their payment. I have called and emailed them asking if entered the right account number but they can’t verify it. I am afraid as our next payment will be transferred again to payoneer and i dont know how can I transfer it to my local bank without having issues. I would appreciate if you can help me. thank you

Ding Yanying

I have paid $1000 to payoneer of my partner via credit Card. Maybe it’s 19th of May.
But he didn’t get anything and my credit card is paid $1000 correctly.
I don’t know where is my money ;(

When my partner get the money?

Best Regards

I was going to sign up with PAYONEER, but having gone through this review, I do not think it’s worth it. Can you recommend a another good one, but not PayPal please.

Paul Sher

Payoneer is a total fraud/scam. About one in five new accounts will actually receive access to funds they receive in their accounts. For the other four – the money is simply stolen by Payoneer. They should be in jail!

John

They wait until you have enough money in your account and then they block access to your account and your funds will disappear. I have been trying to get in contact with them for a month but their customer services is useless and they will just tell you that they are looking into it. Total scam

Jim

Ive reada number of reviews on here, and most of it sems to be about Payoneer contacting or resolving issues, I have to say that each time I spoke to them, despite being on live chat for 30 mins waiting I was able to resolve the issues I had with my account and card, I know that some transactions can take time (and Upwork like to delay payments to them) but apart from a few set ups issues the rest of the service has been great, I got my card inside 2 days (said it could take 28), transfers are… Read more »

I am just a small potato who owns a short-term rental home that I rent out through VRBO. VRBO now offers Payoneer as a means of payment processing for owners. I am considering changing to Payoneer because they seem to offer lower rates. After reading the above reviews, I will stay with my current processing company as I don’t need the customer service problems or delays mentioned above. The State, County, phone company, property manager, insurance, credit card, electric and water companies want their money on time with no hassles and so do I. Many thanks to all of you… Read more »

I was pretty hesitant because of some negative reviews. But by following their instructions regarding deposit types (direct banking transaction versus wiring, etc.), this has been a fantastic find for me! I was paying almost 10-20% to receive UK payments through a third party service as a freelancer. With Payoneer’s relatively low conversion/withdrawal fee I am keeping much more of my gross. I have been using Payoneer for several months without a hitch.

George

Don’t use their service! This service is only for scammers. I paid 500 eur to developer and he disappeared after that i don’t know what to do. Try to contact this payment system but they doesn’t respond on my e-mails and looks like they don’t care about nothing. SO SCAMMERS THIS SYSTEM IS THE BEST FOR YOU

hamza

Payoneer is a scam company, i was asked to provide my id after i received my first payment into my account which i provided. after some days of waiting my account was blocked for no reason and i contacted the cs, they were just saying trash. i have promised that i will take legal action to make sure that this company is shut down and the perpetrator are jailed. i have all evidence

CJ

They’ve held my $9000 for over 40 days. In the last email, they basically said, “dont call us, we’ll call you” It’s a convenient service – until something goes wrong…

CJ

Payoneer has lost $9000 of my company, incompetent! They haven’t responded to my last email.

lukas

I’ve requested withdraw to my bank account and right now I’m waiting for 17 days to get money….Who knows how many more days I’ll wait.

OMG !!!!!! What kind of a company is that??? International payment provider : seriously ??? This company is just a bit joke. I have been working with dozens of intl and local online payment providers for the last 5 years. I have NEVER EVER experienced just a BAD and LOW LEVEL of customer service as I did with PAYONEER. They simply do NOT answer customer service tickets unless you harass them to get a reply and it comes after weeks and several follow up emails. Their solution is NOT working, months after I opened a business account They ask you… Read more »

I wish I would have known that this company is a piece of crap. Wire transfer is taking over a week and when you call the reps are talking down to you and the useless supervisors that cant do anything. Unbelievable to have a wire take over 3 weeks because they cant find the funds that they transferred. Recommend NOT TO USE THIS COMPANY at all!

Elvin

I think they just don’t care about the new clients. They blocked my card so I can’t receive money, reviewing my account more than a month… still waiting. They deleted my post in their forum only because I asked some questions(sic!). Jeez, I’m not even started to do business with them.. so much negative experience. On sitejabber.com I wrote a review and they asked me to send them private message about this issue “Hi there Elvin, We are sorry to hear about your frustration. Please note that when a card is blocked, it is due to the details being compromised… Read more »

i used payoneer escrow for a 10k transfer to buy something, its now almost 4 weeks to get this transfer sorted. An extra $20 was taken in transit (i was never notified) my login shows different information to the seller, when i call payoneer their escrow logins are different to their normal logins. Ive called over 10 times, spent hours on the phone trying to resolve this $20 which i got no email to explain the problem. I have used many escrow services, without doubt this is the worst, total group of incompetents and this issue could easily not happen… Read more »

Kaidean Savage

I have been using them for more than a year and honestly had no issue. Just last week I deposited funds to my Payoneer card as normal only to be told that I cannot access same until I send them proof of my banking details. I don’t even know where they are located and I’m to send them ALL my banking details? Each time I reach out to them for clarification I get a generic response. Quite frustrating.

VV

Payoneer transactions are not really transparent. Only now I discovered that I pay for each of my transactions an extra 3.5% “cross-border” fee, because my card was issued in some random country that I haven’t been to and won’t travel to in the nearest future. This fee is not visible in the history of the transactions, I paid attention to it only because the sum I paid was higher than usual, and these extra 3.5% stood out.

L

I just opened a Payoneer account because some people gave testimonies about how Payoneer helped them save money compared to Paypal, but I haven’t used it yet. Now I’ve read all the comments here and am getting worried.
Any follow-up news regarding those who had their accounts blocked or payment/transfer not received?

Shamsudeen

I do not understand how a company and their staff could be so heartless and inhuman. My over $200 was seized for more than one month with no tangible reason as to why it is done. I contacted their support team through live chat more than 7 times for an update and to know why they took that drastic action, during the course of the one month plus, but all I get was negligence and harsh response. As a freelancer on Fiverr, my payment comes from there and totally rely on Payoneer to get my payments. But my hard earned… Read more »

They make you wait if you are seeking a refund for any payments that you’ve made to a merchant and needs a refund. Then conveniently after 3-4 weeks, they tell you that since the payment was processed more than 10 days ago the money cannot be refunded back. STAY AWAY. this is not a user-friendly system especially for those that are paying for a service as the money is not in an escrow- they take absolutely no responsibility for the money. I have worked with other payment companies which have much better customer service. I have no idea how the… Read more »

They literally closed my account because I am a realtor, though I have been with them for over a year and the funds I receive are transferred from my PayPal and not sent directly to my Payoneer and, though the payments I receive have nothing to do with real estate which they were aware of as I provided documents for each payment I received for 2017 and 2018 from both my PayPal and the backend of my social media pr website which aligned to show that the payments were not real estate related.

HI, My message is to the admin of this forum,I wanted to suggest to make it mandatory to put in the reviewers country name while posting a comment on this page just like the way you made it mandatory for the Name & Email Address, and commentors should not be allowed to put a wrong name of the country they are posting from as your form should only accept a country name according to their IP address, Now why i am suggesting this is because i want to know for what countries is payoneer really working well and the countries… Read more »

My experience with Payoneer is great, it is simply, straightforward and cost effective. Here in Serbia Payoneer is best solution for freelancers and small business, also they are only one besides banks which are allowing direct withdraw of funds to bank account.

I had to send them multiple emails with scanned documents. I am not sure what is the problem on the other side while receiving them, each time different customer service person responds saying they need the documents. One of the service representative mentioned that scanned copy is not clear! I re-scanned with highest resolution and emailed. They responded to send it again. I even uploaded on Google drive and shared the URL. Finally I get an email saying me to go with alternate service provider, we cannot provide service.

Since Payoneer stopped communicating with me about a pending payment of 794.68 GBP after just one mail, should I contact their London Bank (Barclays) to resolve the issue even if they don’t want us to do so?
