Getting Cash Back
A stupid newbie question.Hi, I'm relatively new to Payoneer and have what's probably a dumb question. On the Payoneer web site, getting cash back when making purchases is suggested as a way to save on fees. I'd like to do this instead of withdrawing funds from an ATM, but when I try to use my Payoneer card at stores, I don't seem to be able to use it as a debit card.
If it's relevant, I live in Canada. When making a purchase, one has to tell the cashier whether it's debit or credit so the cashier can enter the same into the computer. Then you swipe your card.
I've tried using my card at several large chain stores, and have only been able to use it as a credit card. Doing that allows me to make the purchase, but it doesn't allow me to get cash back because the transaction goes through immediately after I swipe my card. When I have the cashier identify the card as a debit card, the machine always tells me the transaction has failed as soon as I swipe my card. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? How do you get your cash back?
