dear @payoneer, payment request to myself = deposit???

i want to deposit just $500 to pay a freelancer/sub-contractor
- I could have send my own earnings from other places like fiverr to payoneer previously but have no pending earnings anywhere now.

Why does payoneer act like a one way road here, what is the (legal?) context?
Why cant i just make a deposit from my bank account that i was asked to add at signup?

If i send a funding request to myself ( indivudual) it will be payable by creditcard only.
is it fine to pay my self (="deposit") ? or is it OK at least for once/ exception?
what will be the fees in total, how much money will be left for the receiver to withdraw without my and his fees? Will it qualify for the referal $25 anyway?

2. GlobalPaymentServices
SEPA transfer sais: "Transfers must be made from a company bank account"
Can i just use my individual account?

(i saw for ACH/USD it even sais "Transfers from individuals will be automatically rejected"
" Transfers made from a company account owned by you cannot be accepted" why?)

thanks and happy easter!

    That's the basis of the service. Payoneer is not like other conventional ewallets that allow you to load your own money for online purchases or charge your card directly to complete a purchase. This type of service is more consumer based as follows other guidelines that are associated to this type of service.

    Payoneer on the other hand provides a service that allows you to collect your pay from clients, companies and online platforms for services you are providing or product you are selling. They don't request or deal with money from your personal bank or card in his case, thus making the nature of the service you receive more business orientated.

    Even requesting to "top off" your balance for a purchase is not permitted in this case.

    If you are trying to pay other Payoneer users for a service they are providing to you, the receiver of the funds should send you an email request for a payment. Based on where you are situated, you will have several options to select from.

    If you are looking for a more personalized service (and not service oriented) for loading your money as I mentioned at the start, Payoneer would most likely not be a service for you.

    Happy and willing to answer general questions.

    For any inquiries directly associated to your Payoneer account, please contact Payoneer's Customer Care Support Center.
