Can I verify my address with a utility bill receipt?

I live with my family and my utility bills are under the name of the family member who owns the house. Additionally, my bank statements do not include my address. Could I use a receipt of a utility bill payment to confirm my address?

    Hi @arman3 !

    Unfortunately, receipts are not accepted as proof of residence. Acceptable forms of proof of residency are:

    • A copy of your recent utility bill
    • Bank statements
    • A rental agreement for your current accommodation.

    If you need assistance with any personal case, please contact our Customer Support Center

    I can't choose National ID category for my postal ID verification submission. Is it acceptable if I chose the passport option?

    Hello,
    Been trying to verify my address for Payoneer but I have been unsuccessful four times. Apparently, Payoneer does not accept PO boxes for verification. The electricity and water bills we use at home are registered under my dad's name since we live together. I really need this account to be verified. Are there any other documents that I can submit for address verification?
    Note: All the documents (Bank statement, water, and electricity bill) all carry the PO box address since that is what we use here. Kindly assist or advise on what to do.

    Hi @sparks254 ! You can find above the acceptable proof of residence documents.

    Please note that the address on you documents needs to match with the addres you provided for registration and it can't be a public address.

    If you live with a relative who shares your last name, you can send the invoice on their name, if it is on your mother's name, we ask you for an additional birth certificate to support it. For more specific alternatives please contact the Customer Support Center

    Hello,
    I would like to ask how can I provide proof of my address if the house is owned by my husband and all the official documents that we have are refereeing to his name, not mine. I have official documents to prove our marriage but they are in Arabic. Please advise.
  • Kiara_Payoneer
    Kiara_Payoneer Administrator, Moderator, VIP Member Posts: 598 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Hi @hanoun ! Please read the answers above for alternative documents.

    If the invoices are on the name of your partner, we can accept it with a marriage certificate and the invoice. We have Arabic speakers in our team so that's not an issue.

    Hello, I live in Brazil and I need to use the payoneer service, for some sites, the problem is that they ask for a house document in my name, but I don't have it because I still live with my parents, how would I be able to proceed, the value is extremely low less than 12 dollars.

    I am a Lao citizen who is working in Thailand and has a work permit book. At first, I submitted my passport and Thailand address. It said my passport and address were from a different country. Then, I change my address to Laos. Now, the system reminds me to submit the document to verify my address. Is it an address document from my country, Laos or an address document from the country where I am staying now, Thailand? It seems to be difficult to get a document from my country. My company take full responsibility for accommodation and utility bill. Therefore, my name would not appear on these kinds of documents. Off course, I have the product payment bill. Please give me some advice. Thank you so much.

    Hi @Saksith,

    We understand that you're having difficulties understanding what our "proof of residence" requirement is. I'll be happy to explain you shortly.

    Basically, you need to provide proof that the address you provided when you registered your Payoneer account is real and yours. This means that you need to provide proof of the address registered on your Payoneer account.

    If you scroll through this page, you'll finde the typo of documents we can accept for this purpose!

    I hope this helped and if you're still not sure how to proceed I'd recommend you contact our Customer Support Center to consult how exactly in your case you could verify you address.

    Please know that our house and utility bills are under their name. The bank account I have do not give statements or bank documents too so I'm in a bit of a dilemma. Thank you in advance for your help.

    I started working because my mom resigned so I need this account to receive payments from the clients I work for.

    Hi,
    I have a question regarding Payoneer account address verification. My house is on rent so I don't provide the utility bill because on utility bill there is not my name as the owner of the house. So second option is bank statement but I don't have my bank statement because it is not common in Pakistan. And last option is rental agreement can I upload it's picture I have the rental agreement but it was in Urdu language so can I provide This and verify my address?

    To verify my home address I provided recent payment receipts for Internet service, receipt has my name, address, amount paid etc, but it is in Turkmen language. Payoneer rejected it. Now I submitted my car registration card, it has my name and my permanent address, I hope Payoneer will accept it? I am not sure what to do if Payoneer rejects it. Any advise?

My brother in law is the one on the contract of the rent and I don't have any proof of address besides my national ID card.
