Payoneer is the world’s go-to partner for digital commerce everywhere, used by millions of businesses worldwide to send and receive payments internationally.

If you’re a small to medium sized business, needing to pay international suppliers or contractors or get paid from overseas clients at a competitive exchange rate, and you’re looking for a low cost, easy, and secure payment platform to do so, then Payoneer is here to help.

Who is eligible for a Payoneer account?

Broadly speaking, you’re eligible to use Payoneer if you fall into one of the following categories:

  • Service providers & freelancer agencies: These customers get paid by their clients or via online marketplaces for the professional services they offer.
  • Online sellers:  These businesses get paid by ecommerce marketplaces for the goods they sell.
  • Small to medium sized businesses (SMB): These companies need to pay or get paid for goods or services that they offer.
  • Marketplaces or enterprises: These clients need to send mass payouts to their payees throughout the world.

Who is Payoneer not the right solution for?

Payoneer is the right solution for you if you are making or receiving business payments. If you are looking for a money transfer platform to send or receive money between family and friends, unfortunately, you won’t be approved to use our service.

Don’t worry, though, there are plenty of other good money transfer services out there, such as Western Union or MoneyGram, which can provide you with a remittance service (small-scale personal transfers of money sent by individuals to family or friends in their home country) and help you send or receive money between family and friends globally.

Likewise, if you are looking to open a Payoneer account solely to receive a prepaid card, unfortunately you will also not be approved.

Other types of businesses who are not eligible for a Payoneer account include businesses operating in restricted industries. Payoneer may not be able to provide services to businesses operating in certain restricted industries, such as gambling, adult entertainment, or illegal activities. In addition, Payoneer’s services are not eligible for those under the age of 18.
