Withdraw to Bank - FAQ

LynnPayoneer Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 109 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

One of the most convenient features Payoneer offers is our Bank Transfer service. With just a few clicks, you can easily withdraw your funds directly to your local bank! Have a question about making a withdrawal from your Payoneer account? Here are the most popular questions and answers related to making bank withdrawals -

1. Why is my bank transfer delayed?
The loading time for your funds to reach your bank can range from as early as within a few hours to up to 5 business days. The timeframe completely depends on your local bank and processor or intermediary banks involved in the transfer. Once the funds are sent out from Payoneer's system, Payoneer does not control the overall speed of the transfer. There are a couple of simple reasons a bank transfer can arrive later than normal such as bank holidays, weekends and incorrect bank details. (Read more about possible causes for bank transfer delays here.. )

If more than 5 business days (Monday - Friday) have passed and your transfer has not reached your bank yet, the first step is to download a Transfer Confirmation.

Use the Transfer Confirmation to review your bank account information and check your bank details are correct. You can provide this Transfer Confirmation directly to your local bank to allow them to trace the funds. If this still doesn't help, no need to worry! Contact Customer Support for further assistance.

2. What are the minimum and maximum amounts I can withdraw?
A common question is what are the minimum and maximum amounts you can withdraw to your local bank. This depends on a couple of different factors such as your specific bank and the currency of your bank account.
You can easily check the minimum and maximum amounts your able to withdraw to your local bank under the "Amount to Withdraw" field on the withdrawal screen.

3. What are my withdrawal fees?
The fees applied to your withdrawal depend on the type of withdrawal. The relevant fees are displayed to you on the "Withdrawal Summary" page shown before you confirm the withdrawal. You can also view any relevant fees for your account under the "Help" menu - select "Pricing & Fees".

Corresponding Bank Fees - Please note, if the withdrawal requires sending a USD wire transfer, other banks involved in the transfer sometimes charge correspondent fees. Additionally, your bank may charge landing fees for the transfer. In this case, Payoneer does not have control over the additional fees as they are deducted by other banks.

4. How do I add a bank account or delete an old one?
If you need to update your bank details, you can manage your bank accounts in Payoneer under the "Settings" menu - select "Bank Accounts". If adding a new bank account, please note it must be approved before a withdrawal can be made to it. This can take a few hours or up to 3 business days. You'll receive an email as soon as it's been approved!
Note: If you have funding sources linked to a bank account you may need to contact support for assistance with moving your funding sources from the old bank account to the new one.

For any specific questions related to your account, please feel free to reach out to Customer Support for assistance.

    any help will be highly appreciated

    Hi, @wasel

    We are unfortunately unable to perform bank transfers to Afghanistan at the moment. Currently you can apply for an account and access your funds either by using a Payoneer card, either by withdrawing your earnings to a USD or EUR bank account in a different country. We do hope that the situation will change soon.

    Hi @shaunymb and @klpville

    In order to make a transfer from your Payoneer account to your bank account:

    1. Log in to your Online Payoneer Account -- under the “Withdraw” tab, select "To Bank Account"
    2. If this is your first attempt to withdraw funds, please click on the “Add new” button and proceed to the account registration - follow the instructions on the page
    3. If you already have a withdrawal account approved by Payoneer - select the requested card/currency balance that you want to withdraw from.
    4. Select the bank account you want to withdraw funds to, enter the requested “Amount,” “Withdrawal Description,” and then click "Review"
      Note: You could input the amount that you would like to withdraw from your currency balance, or the settled amount that you wish to receive in the target bank account currency.
    5. Review the details of your withdrawal and make sure everything is correct, then mark the checkbox I approve this transaction and click "Withdraw".

    We recommend that you contact our customer care team regarding your personal withdrawal methods.

    3. Click Add bank account
    4. Fill out the form with the details

    Hola. Soy Rafa. Alguien sabe si hay una forma de cambiar divisas directamente en Payoneer (USD a MXN) para que no me cobren en mi banco los 30 dólares más IVA en México? O cualquier forma de evitar pagar esta tarifa. De antemano, muchas gracias.

    Hola @rafaespi ! En este momento, la opción de convertir fondos a tu moneda local no está disponible. Estamos trabajando para habilitar más opciones en el futuro.

    Ten en cuenta que aún puedes retirar tus fondos en moneda local a través de tu tarjeta prepaga Payoneer o haciendo una transferencia a tu cuenta bancaria local.

    Nos disculpamos por los inconvenientes y si tenes mas preguntas mandanos una solicitud a nuestro Centro de Soporte al Cliente

    Okay, so I had to set up a Payoneer account because I perform gig tasks on Clickworker but from what I am reading if I'm not withdrawing $300 USD, which is the minimum (I assume), I cannot access my funds? I can't receive a Payoneer card because I haven't collected $100 in payments through the platform, so what is the purpose of using the platform? At this point Payoneer is holding funds I earned performing gigs, regardless of what amount it is. Like is there a way I can transfer it somewhere else so that I may access my funds? I really would appreciate some assistance, because the Contact Us button isn't getting me anywhere!

    Hi @DaniC38! I understand that you have some questions regarding the minimum limit to withdraw your funds.

    While the exact amount may vary, the minimum limit is usually way less than 300$. It's best to check with our support team for the exact numbers. Additionally, they will be able to advise you on other available options to access your earnings (such us changing your method of payment). Please try using this link to contact us.

    I hope this information helps!

    Can I Withdraw Money to a Bank Account I Don’t Own?
    No. The bank account must be owned by you or in your name. If you add a bank account that is not in your name, you may be asked to provide additional if additional documentation is provided then different name account can be approved?....but at the same time...this question was posted

    now here payoneer support says no chance any different name can be i am confused can it be added or not?
