How to verify Skrill (Moneybookers) with Payoneer

Admin: Skrill charges you from an international processor, which causes a cross border fee to be applied.
I just saw some people having trouble with adding their payoneer card to MB and not been able to verify it. The thing is, the amount that the payoneer card shows in transaction is not accepted as the true value in Moneybookers when we try to verify this.
 
Actually I figured it out how to caclulate the real amount without guessing and waiting. Some of you have already found this, but thought to share it since this may help our members in someway.
 
The first thing is just go to your transactions and find out the value that payoneer have charged from the card. its usually less than 2.99USD. So after you found that amount simply substitute it to the following formula;
 
let X = the amount shown in payoneer transaction page which MB have charged you.
 
X/101.8 ) * 100 = Y
 
here Y is the real amount that MB have charged from you. So when you try to verify your card, add the 'Y' value in MB to verify ur Payoneer card.
 
And this formula is simply made with; 100 + 1.8<- the MB Upload funds fee from a credit debit card.
 
And also, if there are more than 2 decimals, round up in to 2 decimals when verifying your payoneer card in MB.
 
Sorry for the bad english, But hope this helped you all somehow..  :thumbsu:

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting! The reason that the amounts don't match up is because Skrill is making the charges in USD from an international processor, which is causing a cross border fee to be applied to the amount. As you mentioned, this is generally ~1.8%.

     

    I'm sure this will help many others here on the forum.

     

    Note: If you are unable to complete the Skrill verification process using the method above, please contact our customer support department and they will assist you: http://www.payoneer.com/contactUs.aspx

    Thank you for the nice comment. For the past time, including myself, this had been a huge problem for most of our payoneer users. Thats why I did some research and calculations and finally came up with this conclusion. So glad that I could be a help to the forum. And also thanks for the great service that you all provide us. Payoneer is and will be always the BEST!!!

    And also another thing I thought of mentioning, sometimes 1.8% fee of Moneybookers may vary to 1.9%. So i think if you do the math part using 1.8% first and fail to verify, then you should try to use 1.9% fee rate. One of these must give you the correct amount that MB have charged from your payoneer card.( for me, it was mostly 1.9%)

    In other words,

    if X = amount indicated in your transaction page in payoneer saying MB has charged you.

    method 1 : (X/101.8 )  * 100 = Y

    method 2 : (X /101.9 )  * 100 = Y

    Y = the amount you should add to MB to verify your payoneer card.

    As said earlier, you should round up to 2 decimals when adding the amount to MB to verify your payoneer card.

    I your first attempt fails(lets say you used method 1 here), i.e. the amount you entered (after doing the calculation) to MB in order to verify payoneer card gets wrong, then you can wait for another 24 hours (a day) and then use the other method and enter the value calculated. One of the above two methods must give you the correct value! (so you can veify the card within 1-2 days ; if 1st attempt gets right, just in seconds!!)

    Of course, before doing these all, you MUST WAIT TILL THE VALUE THAT MB CHARGED YOUR PAYONEER CARD APPEARS in your transaction page!!
    NEVER TRY TO GUESS IT before it appears on the page!!!!

    I dont have a clear idea with this issue. I think still you can use the above equations and calculate the amount charged in USD and then before entering it to MB convert that to EUR. But Im not sure of this. Sorry

    Hi, Romi

     

    I have a moneybookers account and I want to verify my Payoneer mastercard , BUT I have no money in my card (0,00 EUR) .

     

    So, what happens if moneybookers charge an amount from my card , can you block my card ? or what ?

     

    Thanks.

  • RomiRomi Community Manager Posts: 2,706Member ✭✭✭

    Hi Baki,

     

    If you have $0 in your Payoneer card you won't be able to verify it in Moneybookers. You must have funds on the card.

    Thank you.

     

    I want receive money from my "NETELLER" Mastercard by using "Load money to card" option , BUT an error message appears :

     --- Private loads are not supported for this card --- .

    What can i do to load money from my "NETELLER" Mastercard to my Payoneer Mastercard

     

     

    Thank you very much Romi.

  • RomiRomi Community Manager Posts: 2,706Member ✭✭✭

    Baki-

     

    The Payoneer card is focused on payroll and payout services - it is not meant for personal use. When someone applies for a card it is mainly to receive payments from partners (businesses we work with) and/or via our US Payment Service, which allows individuals to get paid by US companies.
     
    Only when a cardholder is active in one of these methods or both, can he have an option for card to card transfers (between Payoneer cardholders) and private loads (loading money to a Payoneer card with a regular credit card). These are minor services and are only open to active customers.

    when i entered the card code in my new MB account the verification failed and i recived this message:

     

    Verifying your card will take 1-3 days and lets you do more with your Skrill account. The process does not cost you anything.

    To ensure that you have access to your card we will debit EUR 1.01 - 2.99
     
    if i send money to my MB account will i be able to activate the card?

    Hi everyone,

     

    I know that Payoneer doesn't allow their card to be used for gambling website's deposit, so I wanted to connect my Payoneer card with my Skrill account and then deposit money for online gambling.

    When I entered my card details into the Skrill "add card" form, the question I got is: How will you use the small amount uploaded to your account? Gambling / Non-gambling.

     

    I'm not sure if I could have some problems with Payoneer if I select gambling. Am I allowed to do this?

     

    Best regards,
    Veljko

  • NissimNissim Head of Community Posts: 4,013Administrator ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Hi Veljko,

     

    We do not support use of the Payoneer card for online gambling. If you are funding your Skrill account with the intent of using those funds to gamble online, we will not be able to support the transaction.

    i think payoneer want us to give our names, homes and cell phones but when its comes reality i don’t see much help .

     

    all this hopeful posts  over internet  from payoneer representative wane once u are customer   ,  i did  contact the stuff via live chat unfortunately  you only get detective questions and all that doesn’t help its annoying to a large extent

     

    recently i was trying to add my card on skrill (its take a lot to get reply from them - over 10 days) but i have  made a lot of search past 2 years to make sure  that u can verify skrill via payoneer  so i can extend online ,when i asked the support  on payoneer why i'm not allowed  to link this card she answer maybe  skrill don’t accept  our cards, simply like that   ?  i see the site changing  where the help?

    payoneer is losing its importance for me every day , the reason i did sign up for this service   bc i thought i can do many things with it !! .. i wanted to try the magic payoneer but i feel there is nothing special here

  • RomiRomi Community Manager Posts: 2,706Member ✭✭✭

    Hi wizard02,

     

    I'm sorry for your experience. When linking your Payoneer card on Skrill you must have funds on the card - it won't work otherwise. If you have funds and it still doesn't work, you should contact Skrill directly.

    In order to transfer money from Skrill to Payoneer, you need to use the US Payment Service: http://community.payoneer.com/index.php?/topic/7576-what-is-the-us-payment-service-how-does-it-work/

    hey ! nice to see u are allowing some customers views here :)

     

    yes i have funds , skrill reply was...  "As soon as you receive a confirmation from your card issuer that future transactions to Skrill will be authorised, please contact us again so that we can restart the card verification procedure."   not sure if they understand that my card is payoneer just in case that would make any difference  i'm trying to get an answer from them

     

    but when i did ask payoneer representative she said - i dont see skrill trying to take this small amount of money from your card for verification

  • RomiRomi Community Manager Posts: 2,706Member ✭✭✭

    Then this seems like a Skrill issue and I hope they resolve this quickly for you to be able to withdraw your funds.

    Please note that in order to link your Payoneer with Moneybookers, you must have funds on your Payoneer card. If you have no funds it will not work for you since Moneybookers won't be able to charge the verification amount
     
    If you have funds and still unable to verify the account - please contact Moneybookers directly.

    My card was shipped from UK, and I entered the exact amount (without applying the stated formula) and it accepted. So I think formula application should be on cards issued other than from UK. :)

    Hello, I'm new here and I have a question.
    I really like Skrill and prefer it to Paypal and since I get my funds from there I wonder if it's possible to transfer my money from Skrill to Payoneer then withdraw my money from Payoneer in an ATM. If I can't transfer my money from Skrill to Payoneer what are the things possible to be done with Payoneer? and how much time does it usually take for the money to be transferred from Skrill to Payoneer (if it is possible) and then how much time would it take for the money in my Payoneer account to be available in the ATM. Thanks a lot! I'm from Morocco by the way (I guess that matters for the info)
  • Adam_PayoneerAdam_Payoneer Posts: 1,109Administrator ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Hi @Erramyne

    It is possible to transfer funds from Skrill to Payoneer. From what I've gathered from existing users who do this, once they verify their details with Skrill they can add the Global Payment Service details we provide. Through these details you can withdraw the funds in order to access your funds through the Mastercard we issue you or withdraw it directly to your local bank account (if available).

    The time it takes to receive, review and credit the funds to the account on average takes 2-3 business days.

    If you have clients you are serving, you can have them pay you directly through Payoneer by using the Billing Service option we offer. The average time it takes for the funds to become available for you is the same as before. 


    Unfortunately I don't have a good forum thread for Skrill I can refer you too, so hopefully additional users will stumble upon this thread and will share some of their personal insight on the subject.

    Happy and willing to answer general questions.

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

    @theexplorer @zombiieyacine
    From what I have gathered from users I have talked to in the past, while it is possible to connect the US Payment Service details to receive payments, because Skrill is a Euro based company it is recommended to use the Euro payment service details as there is a better chance for the details to be accepted by them.

    Happy and willing to answer general questions.
