Is Payoneer Safe to use?
The big truth must be told, making payments internationally could stir up worries about whether your money would be safe or not. But the same is not true with payoneer as they have gained trust over the years of operation.
So Payoneer is very safe for your transactions, in fact, as said earlier many affiliate programs and freelance companies rely on Payoneer for smooth running of payments.
Payoneer Free or Not?
Payoneer has been offering free mastercard for applicants of some selected countries. You can use this card to withdraw from your local ATM.
I’ve been asked this question many a time “Does payoneer offer mastercard to indian users? The Answer is No for Now.
Indians can only get the account, while they send their funds to local bank accounts for cashing out or use to purchase products online.
While you now know few details on how payoneer works, if safe or not. Your next question should be how you can get one.
But Before then, Payoneer just updated their registration procedures and now its not like before when you register and get your card sent immediately after few days.
No Problems Though!
How to Apply for Payoneer Account: 2017 Registration Procedures.
Just like I said earlier, payoneer updated their registration procedure so, if you are still following the old method of application, you may get things wrong. You need to follow the tutorial in this post.
What do you need to Apply for Payoneer?
- A responsive browser: Chrome or Firefox is recommended (Not Opera Mini browser especially if you are registering from Mobile)
- A Working email address
- A valid Identity Card e.g. National ID card (Paper or Card for Nigerians), Drivers License and Voters Card.
- Patience (Required)
Visit Payoneer Registration Page here and click on the button that says “Signup and Earn $25” as seen below screenshot. I would explain the $25 later on this post.
Upon clicking on the Signup and Earn $25 button you would be directed to a new page. This new page is where you need to enter your details. Make sure you enter them correctly in order to avoid errors later on.
Select Individual as account type or Business. This solely depends on who is using it.
I personally would select Individual.
Fill in your details and click on Next.
Below screenshot should get you going.
On clicking the above Next, you would be taken to a new page, here you are required to put in your contact details e.g. Your Country, State, Phone Number, etc. Check below screenshot for more;
Click on the small arrow next to country to select the country where you reside in; that is where they would deliver your card.
Enter other details such as your street address, City, etc. Make sure you input a clear address so you don’t get your card delayed.
Finally Click Next and proceed to the next page. Below is a screenshot to guide you.
Now you need to enter your password and security question. Make sure your password starts with Uppercase (Capital) and is mixed with Number and symbols e.g. Keyword123*$
This step is where you would input your Identity Card Details. Click on the drop down arrow and select the card you have. Put in the ID No.
Note: Make sure you use a card that you would have access to; This is because as time goes on, they might want to verify your Identity and the Identity Card you used to apply would be needed.
If you use a wrong card, you may not be able to withdraw later, so here is very important.
Tick the three boxes to agree to their terms and conditions as seen below;
This is the last step. Here you need to enter your Local Bank Account Details.
But Wait, Why is Payoneer adding an Option for putting your Local Bank Details?
The benefit of applying with bank account details is that if for any reason you do not have access to your card, the default option for accessing your pay would be to withdraw the funds to your local bank.
So Cool right?
Payoneer’s focus is to provide access to your pay at any time without restricting you to the card only.
Fill in your correct Bank Account Details such as Bank Name, Account Number etc.. in the required fields.
In case you don’t know your swift code, you could follow this link to get it or ask your bank about it. (recommended)
You need to make sure it’s correct.
Now enter the details as seen in the screenshot below
Finally Click Next. You would be welcomed to the last page with a congrats.
Payoneer would review your application and send an approval message via your email.
