Payoneer – what is Payoneer and how it works?
Payoneer is a payment processing company like PayPal, or Skrill, but in many cases PayPal or Skrill might be more difficult to deal with depending on which country you live in. One of the most important to think about when working online is how you are going to get paid. If you don’t have a tool that can bring you your payments fast, secure, and in a guaranteed way, you will not be able to get paid for the work you do. Having an easy way to get paid will help you focus on your work without being worried about your payments.
Before I started working with Payoneer I tried PayPal, Skrill and others, but I had a lot of cases where I faced difficulties with these companies. It wasn’t only me, but also the companies that I worked with had problems with them, so this caused my payments to be delayed. Now I receive payments directly from Payoneer Mass Payout partner, and I also use the U.S. payment service to withdraw my funds from PayPal. Recently, I also started to use the new service – withdrawal to local bank or direct deposit as its more well known.
Benefits of pre-paid card:
- Non US residents can open a bank account in a US bank and get the prepaid master card in USD currency.
- Possibility to purchase goods in US online retailers for non US residents such Newegg, Amazon, etc.
- You can withdraw funds anywhere in the world
- Fair service and conversion fees
- Possibility to withdraw money in USD currency from PayPal to your Payoneer prepaid card without currency exchage in PayPal system
Payoneer and Appen/Leapforce
Appen Global was using one of the largest payment processors ‘ADP’ but has decided to use Payoneer for making the majority of their payments. It is much easier to get the account setup and have this beforehand. As an independent contractor, you are always responsible for doing your own taxes, so Payoneer will not withhold taxes. You must do this on your own. Payoneer will make you go through some approval process but if you are working for Appen Global, you will be approved as there is no other way to accept payments. Even if you may not use it for Appen (if you do not into any project) you can use it send and receive payments for majority of services/websites as it is becoming an alternative for PayPal.
If you are working for Leapforce, you might know that starting on September 4, 2018 that the company is changing their payment processor to Payoneer. There will be no other way to get paid by Leapforce unless you have registered with Payoneer. Registration begins on September 4, 2018 and closes on September 30, 2018. It is very important to note that if you are working for Leapforce and you do not register to received payments through Payoneer, any contract that you have will be terminated.If is very important to take care of this right away because you don’t want to lose your contracts.

How To Add Payoneer For US raters at Raterlabs and Lionbridge (Direct Deposit)

US Lionbridge independent agents and Raterlabs part time workers may use Payoneer account for receiving payment from Leapforce and Lionbridge.
