Payoneer should introduce system where accounts are shown by a number not a name to the payee

Banks and payment companies like Payoneer require you to register with your true name and details. Of course this is as it should be. However, there may be legitimate reasons why people want to receive funds anonymously. People may receive payments from companies but not want their real name to be revealed to that company for example if the payments were coming from an adult related industry.

For the sake of discretion once a person has registered with Payoneer, it should be made possible to receive payments from companies without revealing the name of the Payoneer card holder who is recieving the payments. This can be done by using either the email as the account ID or another number. For example the customer could only be given a Customer ID. As it stands right now, Payoneer shows both the name and the account number ID of the person.

My suggestion is that it should not be necessary to reveal the name of the account holder. only the account number or email should suffice. This system is deployed by Egopay where an account holder is only identified by an email to payee's. Upon registration, full details of the account holder are of course held by Egopay, but they do not disclose names.

Payza have an alternate method which allows users to have multiple wallets once they have registered with their true details. This means wallets can be created and are allocated a number and name. People can use different wallets with different names if they want to receive payments from different companies or people. The 'wallets' do not have to have the real name, just an identifying made up name. Transfer of funds is then possible between 'wallets'. In practice this means, the account holder can receive funds in one wallet from a company, without disclosing real name. However, the withdrawal is done by transfer to the 'main' wallet with Payza. This way, everybody is happy and the customer can receive funds discreetly.

I would recommend that Payoneer adopt some of these methods. They are an attractive and safe way to receive funds discreetly.
