How to make a transaction

For making a transaction

You and your beneficiary need to open a Payoneer account. You also need to add the bank details of the person to whom you are sending the money. Then you can enter the details of the payment amount along with the recipient's details. The last step you need to do is to review all the details of the payment before proceeding to pay. Once you are done with the review, you need to click Pay, and then you will receive an instant payment confirmation along with the transaction ID. The entire process of sending money involves a fee levied by Payoneer.

For Receiving a Payment

If you do not have any Payoneer account but the recipient has an account, then the beneficiary can use the Payoneer’s billing service for requesting money from you. You can make the payment through debit card, credit card, or net banking. Payoneer may levy a fee depending upon the type of payment done.

After receiving the money in the beneficiary Payoneer account, the receiver can withdraw the funds from their local bank account.

Fees and Exchange rates

When you are using Payoneer, often the payment is made in one currency, but you may receive the fund in another currency. You need to pay a conversion fee of 2% which is above the mid-market rate. In some other countries, the fee may rise to 2.75%.

There is a ‘Make a Payment’ option for making and receiving fund transfer at no cost. If you have enrolled yourself in the Global Payments Service, Payoneer will help you receive money for US dollars, Euros, Pounds, Yen. If you are receiving money in Euros, Pounds, and Yen, then it is free to receive money. For US dollars, Payoneer levies a 1% transaction fee.

You can also use the billing service for receiving payments but you need to pay different fees if you are using an e-check or credit card. To withdraw the funds in the market places like Amazon, Fiverr, and Airbnb, you need to find the exact rates on the platform you are working with as these market places have their own set of exchange fees.
