When I first started working online, I didn’t know much about a lot of things. Like anything in life, this has been a process. One of the things I was unaware of was the different payment options that were there. I was excited when I received my first payment for transcription work.
Gosh, I had finally proven that you can work online in Kenya and make some real money. However, all I knew back then was the bank wire transfer. Luckily, three months later, I discovered Payoneer Card, and oh boy, don’t I just love it.
Now, in many of these freelancing sites, when you have done work for a client and get paid, you will access your money mainly through three ways: Paypal, Skrill and Payoneer Card. Simply go to the Withdrawal tab on Elance, Upwork or People Per Hour and choose one of the three options. However, the minimum for Payoneer card is $20.
Why Get A Payoneer Card?
Once you get your Payoneer Card, all you need is to go to a local ATM – Barclays Bank, Standard Chartered, Stanbic Bank, or any PesaPoint ATM and withdraw your money. There is a one time charge of $30 which will be deducted from your earnings. The withdrawal charge from the ATM is $3.15 currently, declined withdrawal charges are $1.
I find it so convenient and when a client pays me, I can choose to wait about two days for the money or I can have my money after two hours for an additional charge of $2.50. You can use the card to buy stuff online too. Awesome! And should you go on holiday (Seychelles perhaps), you will still be able to withdraw your money through any MASTERCARD.
I also love the fact that I got to choose my own PIN. Rest assured there can be no unauthorized use of your card.
How Do I Apply For My Payoneer Card?
Another great reason to apply for the card is because they will pay you $25! What for, you ask? For simply applying through this link. They understand the power of word of mouth and this is their gift to you. Once your payments reach $100 (it may be a one time payment or cumulatively) you and I will each receive $25.
Please note you will have to wait approximately for about a month to receive your card. For me however, the card came a bit earlier than a month. You will need to activate your card and as I have mentioned, enter a pin which you will have chosen.
You can check your balance, view transactions and view your payments history online. Remember, your email address is your username. And ensure you have a secure password! So, what next?
Apply for the Payoneer card and enjoy your money!
