Payoneer fees (via Upwork) 2019

I noticed, that if you sign up to Payoneer via Upwork Add Method, the fees differ from fees on Payoneer official site.

 

For instance, the activation of each card (via Upwork)=5$, via Payoneer=0$, annual maintenance via Upwork=36$, via Payoneer=30$ and so on.

 

I hope to specify,

 

1. It will be anyway (regardless your IP country registration)?

 

2. If I sign up via Upwork, annual maintenance, for second (Euro) card will be 36$, a third card 36$ (GBR) also 36$, total=108 if I use 3 cards simultaneously ??? I ask because in this fees says that 5$ activation for each card.

 

3. If I sign up to Payneer via another partner (where other fees and bonus 25$) and add this account via Upwork add method, after that I send money from Upwork to Payoneer, in this way, enrollment (from the side of Payoneer) is free or 1% ???

 

It is very difficult to contact Payoneer support for unregistered users, so any information appreciate

 

Thanks, I hope it will be useful for many peoples!

Hi Yaroslav!

 

Let me see if I can help!

 

1. It will be anyway (regardless your IP country registration)?

A: Yes, excatly. Fees will defer no matter what regardless of IP.  But Payoneer states that the fees on their official website are only general fees and they may vary per account, per card, per user.

 

2. If I sign up via Upwork, annual maintenance, for second (Euro) card will be 36$, a third card 36$ (GBR) also 36$, total=108 if I use 3 cards simultaneously ??? I ask because in this fees says that 5$ activation for each card.

A: The first card will be issued via Payonner through Upwork in USD. All additional cards will be issues per Payoneer and not Upwork. Payoneer will charge you fees for each card, yearly maintnance fees and so on. It will all depend on the cards they issue you.

 

3. If I sign up to Payneer via another partner (where other fees and bonus 25$) and add this account via Upwork add method, after that I send money from Upwork to Payoneer, in this way, enrollment (from the side of Payoneer) is free or 1% ???

A:  if you register for this new Payoneer account  using other partner for example (Another freelance website) then just add Upwork as one of the funding source. There are no fees to receive moeny from Upwork to your Payoneer account. The fees you will pay are the $2 per transaction that Upwork charges you, not Payoneer, when you send your money from your Upwork balance to your new Payoneer accoun.  $2 per transaction.

 

A way to avoid the $2 fee is by requesting an internatonal USA banking checking account through Payoneer. Then add that checking account to your Upwork account as a method to receive payment. Fees for that are $0 but take much longer to receive the funds. Up to 48 hours. As with the $2 fees method, you usually get the money within one hour.

 

Good luck! if you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

 

Best,

Hugo

In general sign up way, Payoneer takes 30$ per year for account service, a second and third card you can order for free (at least these are the conditions for my country)

 

Register in Payoneer through upwork I make an account Payoneer or just a card?
