Why should I choose Payoneer over other payment methods?
Although there are many platforms and apps that allow users to send money internationally, Payoneer is the best way to send money overseas. Just ask big names and global organizations like Google, Fiverr, and Airbnb.
Here are some of the reasons you should use Payoneer to make international tranfers of money online:
With Payoneer, your business holds a multi-currency account. With access to multiple currencies, you can make international payments as simply as you would local ones. This eliminates the chance for delays and additional fees that often come with foreign currency exchanges.
You can also use the mobile app to withdraw or transfer funds in foreign currencies. The amount you withdraw is quickly transferred into the relevant bank account.
Low fees and rates
Payoneer has a vast partner network and the capability to integrate with many popular platforms, easily. This allows you to facilitate payments and online money transfers at relatively low overall costs.
In some cases, you can send money internationally without fees, for example, by transferring funds from one Payoneer balance to another. This means you may not even pay a single cent and can make an international online money transfer, for free.
If you withdraw directly to your bank, you will enjoy high exchange rates of just 2% over the mid-market rate. These cheaper transfers have a low exchange cost in contrast to the maximum 4.5% that banks can charge you for international payments. You’ll find that other platforms have high and unclear amounts. For example, PayPal charges you a transfer fee as well as additional exchange rate fees between 2.5% and 4%.
Convenience and accessibility
With various integration options and an expansive partner network, working with Payoneer makes sending and receiving money convenient and simple. You can connect the platform to all relevant marketplaces, allowing you to sell and get paid quickly.
Payoneer also enables you to send money internationally to various business partners directly from one dashboard. There is no need to switch platforms for each payment. This allows you to pay global suppliers, staff, contractors, and others all from one place.
Support for diverse industries
No matter the nature of your business, Payoneer can support you. Use Payoneer together with your industry’s relevant marketplaces or ecommerce platforms using your local currency. For example, if you’re selling on Amazon Japan, you can set up a JPY account to receive your payments in yen.
Currently, we work with over 5 million users in various industries, including travel, content creation, freelance, digital marketing, and more.
Low minimum transaction amount
You can begin transacting on Payoneer with as little as $50. This allows you to test out the platform with minimum risk. This also gives smaller businesses the opportunity to get started selling internationally with ease.
Global coverage and support
Payoneer has an extensive sending and distribution network covering 200+ countries and territories.
Our website supports eight languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Japanese, Arabic, Korean, Russian, Ukrainian, and Chinese. This makes it possible for global users from non-English speaking countries to interact with the website, promoting accessibility.
The Payoneer platform doesn’t just allow you to send money internationally. You can, of course, receive it, too.
