Thanks Helmy for making this thread a genuine reference to others like us.
I have a payoneer account linked to my bank account. They claimed it was not verified and needed more information although I added all necessary data weeks ago. Suddenly I opened it today and bank account was approved and linked to it.
The Payoneer website claims it takes only 1% per transaction which is better than PayPal deducing 4% + 5 USD per transaction.
The wire transfer is 30 USD per transaction + bank fees (about 2%).
If you are going to withdraw in terms of +$1k, Payoneer seems to be the best as you mentioned. Did you try it yourself? from getting payments down to deposit it to your bank account?
