I'm working as an independent contractor and I work from Paraguay, South America. Is it best if I request the payments every month? And use my contract as the documentation needed. Also, from what I understand they can transfer money to my payoneer using a bank wire. Do they need a Payoneer account as well? Or if I send them a payment request is enough?

    Hi @ysisgonzalez ,

    In this case you can get paid both ways as you mention. You can request a payment and your payer can pay you either with card or virtual Check. These options may vary according to the eligibility on your account.

    If you register through Payoneer you'll also have receiving accounts, this will allow you to recieve payments from companies and marketplaces globally.

    How does it work?
    Payoneer provides you with the details of a receiving account in a specific currency. You can provide that data to the company or marketplace with which you work. The company uses said data to send you a bank transfer. You will then receive the payment in your Payoneer account. You can find more information on the Frequently Asked Questions page in the Customer Service Center.

    @ysisgonzalez, you can view your receiving account details by following the steps:

    1. Sign in to your Payoneer account.
    2. Click on the Get paid tab and choose Receiving accounts.
    3. Here you could filter by currencies to see the relevant receiving accounts. Click on each account to view the full details.

    If you cannot see these options on your account, please contact customer support.
