Hi all,
I am a freelancer living in the EU, but my income is in USD (stock graphics websites).
I want to switch to Payoneer, and about to order a physical Payoneer card to pay here in the EUR zone, but I am not sure what physical card currency I should choose - EUR or USD to minimize the commissions I pay.
Never used Payoneer before. I know I will be able to manage currencies or something, but which way is better for me, if I receive my income in USD - to manage currencies manually, then withdraw it, or just to order this physical card in one of these currencies? Sorry, I am a bit lost. The point is I just want to pay here in physical stores in the EU in euros with my physical Payoneer card and pay lower commissions for currency conversion etc.

    Hi @Vadzimka !

    We are glad to hear that you're interested in our receiving account to get paid. I'll explain yo a little about this service.

    With this service you'll be able to get paid by marketplaces and international clients as if you had your own local account! And it’s so easy to use too.

    If you're planning to get paid in USD, please make sure you'll be receiving your funds from a USA company, as our regular receiving accounts are designed to receive national payments. This means that if you're going to receive your payment in USD, you'll have to apply for a USD account/card. Once you receive your funds in USD, depending on the availability on your account, you can manage currencies and change your funds to euros or directly withdraw your funds to your local bank account.

    To check all the fees, both for withdrawals and card usage I recommend you visit this site.

    I hope this helped and if you have further questions feel free to reach out!
