What is Payoneer and how it works? 

Need to use the Payoneer Payment Method for one of these vendors? Payoneer is a payment processing company like PayPal, or Skrill. Payoneer main focus is on providing payment services for freelancers, small and medium-scale e-commerce businesses, and international companies like Appen Global.

All Payoneer customers have two options to choose  how money can be utilized from Payoneer account where all payments come in:

Withdraw payments from your Payoneer account to your local bank account, in local currency:

This option is useful for those customers who have a local bank account and would not like to get one more bank card. You simply withdraw money from your Payoneer account to your local bank account.

The second option is a pre-paid card or deposit bank card:

  • 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 as 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 exchange in PayPal system
Payoneer as a payment method for Appen 

Appen Global was using one of the largest payment processors ‘ADP’ but in 2017 Appen 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 to send and receive payments for the majority of services/websites as it is becoming an alternative for PayPal.

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

Payoneer offers to receive accounts via the Global Payment Service, which enables 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 part-time raters, Raterlabs part-time workers may use Payoneer account for receiving payment from Raterlabs and Lionbridge. Only US raters can use this method of payment since only ACH (US local bank) transfers in USD can be accepted. Raterlabs and Lionbridge send payments to US raters via ACH (direct deposit), while international raters revive their payment via wire transfer (Lionbridge).

  1. Go to your account page->Receive->Global Payment ServiceSnip20170621_5
  2. You will then see the bank information page here including name of the bank, your count number, and the bank routing number which you will need to give to Raterlabs or Lionbridge when setting up direct deposit:



  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 🙁

    1. Hi what do you mean by ‘stale’ I update my blog on a regular basis and I confirm that information on this page is up-to-date.

  3. Can I create multiple accounts working at Appen and Lion but only link a Payoneer account to get paid?

    1. Hello,

      Lionbridge does not accept Payoneer as a payment method, except from US locale, in order to receive payment from Lionbridge you need to provide Lionbridge with details of your local bank account.

      1. How about Appen? Can I create multiple accounts working at Appen but only link one Payoneer account to get paid? Example: me and my sister are working for Appen, we can use one Payoneer? Thanks Tim!

      2. No it is possible, the Payoneer account holder name should be the same as vendor/Rater name at appen
