Things to like about Payoneer
Get $25 Sign Up Bonus
What’s not to like about the idea of getting a $25 bonus just for creating your own account that’s gonna be a necessity for withdrawing funds received from your online endeavours. In order to deter any kind of dishonest behaviour the company says you have to receive a certain amount of money to your account before the bonus is paid. This sounds like business sense on Payoneers’ part to me.
An additional benefit that I should mention here as well is that you will also qualify for this bonus to be paid on any person that you refer to Payoneer that also continues on to create their own account.
No hidden fees or taxes
Payoneer fees are all transparent. There are no hidden fees or taxes. This equates to savings for you as compared to using other similar services.

Payoneer is available in over 200 plus countries. This means that you are able to witdraw your money virtually anywhere in the world

People Per Hour
Things that are not so cool about Payoneer
Slow customer support
Payoneer is not so fast in this area. Customer support responses are oftentimes very slow but I have seen that even though they may be slow, they do respond. Hopefully they will improve this in future.
Annual Charge for MasterCard Debit card
There is a $29.95 fee for the Payoneer card. This is billed once annually.
How to create a Payoneer account – Your step by step guide
Those were the things that I had to consider before I decided to go ahead and create my very own Payoneer account. I decided that the advantages far outweighed the possible disadvantages and so I went ahead with the account creation process.
While I was doing this I got to some points where I really wished that I had a guide to follow so that I wouldn’t mess up the process, and I thought to just kinda create a little picture guide that would help someone else by just showing them the necessary steps. So here below is my step by step guide. I hope it helps you.
Step 1 – Click on the blue button below
Step 2 – When you clicked the blue button in step 1 a new browser window would have opened. We will be working with both windows. You will be checking here to see the image related to each step. then go to that second window to execute the instructions that i give. So go to that second window now and you will see a page just like the one in the image below. On that page click on Sign up & earn $25. See replica image of the page below.
Step 3 – Fill in your correct name, email address & date of birth. Then click Next. The email address will be used to access your account. See image below.
Step 4 – Fill in your correct residential address and telephone number. Then click Next. See image below.
Step 5 – Choose a password, security question and enter proper identification. then click Next. See image below.
Step 6 – Enter your correct banking details. Click the 2 boxes to agree to the terms. Then click Submit. See image below
Step 7 – Go to the email address you used to register. There should be an email waiting for you, telling you that your application is being reviewed and should take about 3 days to complete verification. If you do not see the email, then check your email account spam or Junk folder. See image below for what the email message should look like.
Step 8 – Verify your email address. Again there should be an email in your inbox. This time providing a link for you to click in order to verify your email address with Payoneer. Click on the link that says Verify My Email. See the image below
Now all you need to do is wait 3 – 5 business days. By that time you should receive another email address welcoming you to Payoneer. You could also just try logging in to Payoneer using the email address and the password you gave during the account creation process.
After your account has been reviewed and accepted. You are now able to log in and request your Payoneer card. To do this just click on the Order Card link to the right of your dashboard after you are logged in. See below for an image of what i’m talking about.
That’s it. All finished, and i hope i have successfully answered any question that you may have had about How to create a Payoneer account.
This step by step walkthrough detalis the process of creating the Payoneer account as it is at December 2018.
