Payoneer As a Payment Method for Appen, Raterlabs, Leapforce, Lionbridge and Utest

Payoneer – what is Payoneer and how it works? 

downloadPayoneer 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)

Payoneer offers receiving accounts via the Global Payment Service, which enable you to receive local bank transfers from companies and marketplaces in the US, Europe, UK, Japan and China directly to your Payoneer account.

US Lionbridge independent agents and Raterlabs part time workers may use Payoneer account for receiving payment from Leapforce and Lionbridge. Only US raters can use this method of payment  since only ACH (US local bank) transfers in USD can be accepted, and Raterlabs and Lionbridge send payments to US raters via ACH (direct deposit), while international raters revive their payment via wire transfer (Lionbridge).

  1. I have to say that this transition as an independent contractor from ADP to Payoneer at Appen and getting paid was a big problem for me, and I’m lucky that everything was settled and I got my next paycheck on time. But there was miscommunication between Payoneer and Appen Global and to be honest, everything was a mess. When they made the switch, I had no Payoneer account. It would have been much easier to get the account setup and have this before they had made the switch. But since I didn’t have a Payoneer account, I had to go through the approval process. Yes, for some unknown reason I was going through an approval process now. How can I be contracted by Appen Global, but to get paid, I suddenly have to go through an approval process? “What if I am not approved?” I was thinking. Payoneer also decided to send out emails letting independent contractors know that a tax form ID had to be submitted and that now Payoneer would be deducting taxes! Talk about a real problem. As an independent contractor, you are always responsible for doing your own taxes. This led me to emailing Payoneer and checking on it. Payoneer emailed me back and said that this was the law. They obviously didn’t know what they were doing. So I sent an email to Appen Global. They said that Payoneer had sent out the wrong email and that they weren’t taking out taxes. But Payoneer decided to send out another wrong email about submitting tax ID or filling out W4 forms. They simply had no idea what they were doing and Appen Global had to step up and send out an email explaining that Payoneer had sent out the wrong emails, and that we were still responsible for taxes. Now to be honest, this approval process they were talking about would have to be instant. Since this was the new payment processor for Appen, there was no way we could be denied. And I simply explained this to a representative of the company. There was a big miscommunication and the whole thing caused me some unneeded stress.

  2. Dear blogger, 3 days ago lionbridge has put me on review. This is the second time I am under a quality review after a year, Do they explain why I am under a quality review? Do you know what how much chances I have to survive this review? Lionbridge is the only source of income for me right now and I am really scared 🙁
