    What is the Kickback for Affiliate Companies for Using Payoneer?

    Just curious here. I'm seeing more and more affiliate companies making pre-paid Payoneer debit cards an option for payout. For the most part, I don't find the 2-4 weeks you save in your payout to be worth the fees associated with using the card, though I have it active for one company that takes forever to send a check (if they remember).

    I could see where it is attractive to affiliates who need their money as soon as possible for operating capital, but was wondering how much the affiliate companies get paid or comped for using the program? Anything? Per transaction? Nothing?
    Cheers,
    James

    Hi James,

    My name is Nissim, I'm a Community Manager at Payoneer.

    There are currently over 1400 partner and affiliate programs paying with Payoneer, and in addition to our prepaid card we offer numerous global payouts solutions including local bank transfers, ACH, card to card transfers and local e-wallets. The fees associated with our prepaid card are actually among the best available on the market.

    In general, I think it's important for users to have multiple options available to them. From an affiliate program's point of view, you want to support multiple payment methods, as not every person has the same needs and requirements.

    Hi Nissim,
    Thanks for joining Netbuilders and the information!

    Please don't take my post the wrong way. I think you guys definitely provide a needed service. Especially for affiliates or programs that can't use alternatives like PayPal or direct deposit (my favorite).

    Do the major affiliate and other companies with your service get a percentage cut of your fees or is it primarily to benefit their affiliates for an easy payout method? I'm just curious, and was the reason for my original post. I've had no issues with my Payoneer account, I despise all fees personally, but know several folks that wouldn't be able to hawk stuff online without your program based on their country of residence, etc.

    Thanks again for joining us! I also saw PeerFly who has a presence on this board has started using your program as a payment option as well!

    Cheers,
    James

    Thanks for the kind welcome, I'm happy to be here. Sorry I didn't join sooner!

    Payoneer offers many services, and when signing with a new partner we try to tailor the program to their specific needs. This includes which of our services they choose to enable (if not all) and customizing the pricing and fees (which may vary between programs). Major affiliates and other companies add Payoneer as a payment method primarily to benefit their users and members, and to provide a simple and efficient global payout solution.

    Regarding PeerFly, you heard right! We're very excited to be offered as an official payment method for PeerFly, offering both our prepaid card and local bank transfer service. PeerFly is also offering free activation to anyone who signs up for the card during the month of March

    Hi Nissim,
    So, with having you on here, I decided with one of the guys who does contract work for me to try out your service with him. He has an account and card recognized by Payoneer. We have done PayPal primarily over the past 2 years...unfortunately, when we went to do our first transaction together I get this:

    "
    We're sorry but we were not able to approve your credit/debit card payment request xxxxxx of $xxx.00.

    Your credit/debit card has not been charged. The temporary hold on the funds will be released automatically within a few business days. You will not be charged for this payment.

    The reason we were not able to approve your payment request is administrative and related to Payoneer's policy. The decline was not made by your bank or by your card issuer. For more information regarding Payoneer's decision to decline the payment, please contact the owner of the Payoneer account which you attempted to load funds to.

    Should you believe this to be an error please contact us at payments@payoneer.com
    "

    Of course, it makes me very happy that your company put a hold on the funds I was transferring in under 2 minutes, but tells me it is days to get the hold released....

    What gives??? We simply kicked to paypal (though I'm out double the money in the short term while your company makes interest) to complete the transaction.

    Thanks for your time.

    Well,
    No answer back from Payoneer nor Nissim on the issue mentioned last night on my failed attempt to use Payoneer (at my contractor's request) vice PayPal. 24 hours during the work week.

    At this point, I would not recommend the service for paying folks. Could be a one-off on not getting a response on here or via my email. Issues with the country my contractor lives in (we did this as a test since he has to wait several days to access PayPal funds), or who knows...sun spots???

    The fee to pay was going to be about $4.50 for a $xxx payment. It does cost the person wanting to use their service $25 to activate their debit card which is a good little chunk.

    *Note, I still have a hold on the funds from Payoneer from the failed attempt at paying...

    On the receiving end, receiving money as an affiliate has not been a huge issue for me, but I do get charged a monthly fee in addition to the start-up fee, etc.

    Bottom-line: From my experience and perspective, if you live in a PayPal unfriendly country Payoneer "Might" work for you for individual payments. My attempt to pay someone failed. Being a U.S. citizen, Payoneer does not come close to direct deposit, PayPal, or snail mail check.

    Cheers,
    James

    March 30th Update:
    Received communication from a supposed human today....

    "
    Thank you for your email.
    Unfortunately, for our cardholder’s privacy, Payoneer cannot provide you with the reason for the transaction decline.
    We have advised our cardholder of the reason for the decline. Please contact the cardholder for this information.
    The transaction was reversed, and the funds will be returned to your account within 4-7 business days.
    Sincerely,


    Payoneer Customer Support
    "

    Hi javanx3d,

    Did this ever get sorted out? I was thinking about testing about Payoneer as well but now am a bit leary. Guess I will just have to stick to pay pal and ACH for now (and check on a rare occasion).

    Are there any other good alternatives to paypal that you know? I have been using Skrill here and there with mild success. The first company that can convert BitCoins to cash and vice versa is what I am really waiting for.

    I also have a netspend card which pretty much stinks due to the high fees.
