Receiving payments from clients who are individuals and not businesses

Pepa_23 Member Posts: 2
Hi! I provide translation and writing services, and sometimes my clients are individuals and not businesses. Can I receive payments from individuals who do not have Payoneer? Some of them may pay through bank accounts, others from platforms like Wise (NOT business accounts), PayPal, etc. Payments are in USD, but in general clients are not from the US. I currently don't have a Payoneer account, but I'm planning to create one in that currency (USD). I'm from Argentina.

Thanks for your support!

    Hi @Pepa_23,

    Hi there! We appreciate your interest in using Payoneer's services for your translation and writing services.

    Regarding your question, please note that Payoneer's services are mainly geared towards Business to Business (B2B) payments. This means that the service or product being sold must be directed towards or from companies, rather than individuals. If you're providing services or products to individuals, they would fall under Business to Consumer (B2C) transactions, which are not permitted within Payoneer's terms and conditions.

    If you're planning to create a Payoneer account, that's great! You can create one in USD, which is the currency you receive payments in.

    If you have any more questions or need further information, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're always here to help!

    Hello @t_majorfeel free to read through this post.

    Some ways to receive fund to your Payoneer's receiving accounts are:

    1. If the company you work with has an online platform where you need to submit your banking information to receive payments, enter the details of your receiving account in the relevant currency and save your information. Please note that different companies have different ways of sending payments, so you may need to contact them if you have questions about their payment platform.

    2. If the company you work with doesn’t have a unified payment platform, you can simply send the details of your receiving account by email to your contact person within the company. They can use these details to send you a local or wire bank transfer.

    3. Alternatively, you can request a payment from your Payoneer account and your client will receive an email with your receiving account details. Other payment methods may also be available when paying via payment request.
