I'd love Payoneer to work WELL with LIONBRIDGE - It doesn´t
Lionbridge is a well known company that provides work at home opportunities in many ways such as developer, consultant and translator. It is listed in their site that they only make payments via wire transfers, yet, being a company that is in part located in Massachussets and Payoneer saying in it´s own webpage that both companies (Payoneer and Lionbridge) are partners i though maybe when a transfer is made within us companies the SWIFT code, which you don´t have won´t be needed.
As it turned out, i was wrong. Not wrong in my idea that Swift codes are not needed for transfers within the US, but wrong about Payoneer being able to process payments from Lionbridge.
I am really dissapointed with this company as i asked previously if being payed from Lionbridge was possible and both in the forum and the Customer Service chat got affirmatiive aswers which are not correct.
I have refered a friend and another is in the process of closing their actual bank accounts here because i believed Payoneer was a valid payment solution for those who work at Lionbridge from Argentina (where payoneer would be the only way of not loosing tons of money in transfers every month), But it is not. Please Remove Lionbridge as one of your partners if you cannot complete successfully a transaction with them.
Also i received my Payoneer card today, which i won´t activate unless you tell me otherwise, because on the same day i received this e-mail from Lionbridge Finance Team:
BAL mbx ICT Payment7:06 AM (3 hours ago)to SebastianHello Sebastian,
We will be making payment to you by Wire Transfer therefore we need a Swift Code in order to make payment to you.
The Bank you provided us with on the Supplier Portal is FIRST CENTURY BANK, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, can you please confirm the Swift Code of this Bank. Please do not send your bank account number to us via email.
I do not have the "option" of ACH or Direct Deposit as payment method. As Lionbridge only pays through Wire Transfers. So if you have not sorted out this matter with the Lionbridge Finance Team please stop making me and others loose time and money by missleading information on your webpage and your support.
I hope we can solve this matter but i am really pissed right now with you guys as i have shutted down my bank account where i used to be payed by lionbridge and will now have to pay to re open a new one, not to say that i won´t be payed untill next month because actually i don´t have a valid account to provide to Lionbridge. Not to say that i provided you with personal confidential documents and information for nothing and that is not correct behaviour of a legit company.
Please contact me if there is a chance to solve this or if my only option is to close my account and go back to an standar bank account.
