How to get a Payoneer card


After I posted my review of Payoneer’s Virtual US Bank Account offering many of you asked me how you can obtain a Payoneer prepaid debit card. As I’ve mentioned in that review, you cannot obtain a debit card directly from Payoneer, instead you have to get it from one of Payoneer’s payment solutions partners.

Payoneer has partnered with many online businesses to offer them the possibility to make mass payouts easier, faster and more convenient for them and those who will receive them. If you are not already making money from one of Payoneer’s many partners, you will have to start by signing up with one of them.

Here is a list of all Payoneer partners that I could easily identify. No doubt there are probably more partners available, so this list is by no means complete. I will add more Payoneer partners to the list as I come across them. If you’re one of Payoneer’s payment solutions partner and you would like your site posted on the list give me a shout at alan at alansmoneyblog.com

Payoneer partners

Which ones should you choose? Well that obviously depends on how you prefer to make money online. For example if you’re an online merchant the 2CheckOut would be the logical choice. If you run a blog or website and would like to sell advertising space then Text Link Ads would in that case be the logical choice.

Google some of these websites out and find out if they’re right for you.

Now once you’ve decided which Payoneer partner to go with, proceed to the next step which is figuring out how to order a Payoneer card from one of these partner websites. As always it varies from partner to partner so don’t be shy and ask the website’s customer support crew for assistance.

As an example, getting a Payoneer card through Text Link Ads is one of the easiest methods that comes to my mind at the moment. All that you have to do is click on “Edit Account” in your members section and then look for  “*Would you prefer to be paid via check, payoneer or paypal?”.  Select “Payoneer” from that list and then click the “Update Account” button.

You should  then be redirected to a pre-application page where you will be given information on the advantages of using the Payoneer option. The next step is to click the button “Apply” at the end of the page so that you are redirected to the application form on the Payoneer website.

The next step is to fill in the form with your info and send the form.

Shortly after the application process is complete, an email will be sent to the address you provided informing you that your order has been received. Once the application is approved, you will receive a confirmation email and the card will be mailed within 2 business days.

Once you have card in your hands simply follow the activation instructions in the welcome letter and you’re all set!

Update (Dec 26,08): Thanks goes out to Gregory B for pointing out that you don’t have to have a different payoneer card for each payoneer parter.

You can receive payments from several partners into one Payoneer card. To achieve this you would have to go through the complete registration for one partner, to obtain the physical card.

Once you receive your card from this partner, you will have to go through a very short registration process for each additional partner, as follows: on the Payment Method page, instead of pressing the button to sign up for a card, press the link (usually placed above the button) that says “I already have a card”

And with that we’ve reached the end of this post. Thanks for your attention and for visiting my blog.

Review – President’s Choice Financial no fee bank account for Canadians

Greetings everyone. Today’s post is mainly geared towards my fellow Canucks (slang for Canadians). I am going to do a brief review of President’s Choice Financial no fee checking account. As far as I know this is the only completely free checking account offered by a Canadian financial institution, but feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. When I come to think of it, it is really sad that PC Financial is the only bank offering this level of service. The major Canadian banks don’t even come close to providing the same “bang for the buck.” Simply put, everything with this checking account is free. This makes complete sense to me, as why should I be paying them to keep MY money when in fact the use that money to make a whole lot more money than they ever will offer me in the form of interest – this applies to all banks which operate on the fractional reserve banking principle.

Before I talk about the benefits offered by this bank, let me give you a bit of a background so you know who you’ll be potentially banking with.

President’s Choice Financial is a financial institution that offers banking services through a joint venture between Loblaw Companies (a supermarket chain) and CIBC (a major Canadian bank). There are a number of distinct organisations under the President’s Choice Financial umbrella.

Most standard bank products are provided by CIBC (a major Canadian bank). MasterCard services are provided by President’s Choice Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of Loblaw Companies. Insurance is provided by PC Financial Insurance Agency Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Loblaw Companies.

PC Financial has no branches; rather, customer interactions are carried out over the Internet, the telephone, at ABM’s or at sales “pavilions” located in Loblaw-affiliated stores.

President’s Choice Financial was rated as the best mid-size bank by J.D. Power.

PC Financial, through CIBC, is a member of the Canadian Bankers Association (CBA) and registered member with the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC), a federal agency insuring deposits at all of Canada’s chartered banks. It is also an Interac member for its debit card.

Ok, now that you understand a bit more about President’s Choice Financial (from here on called PC Financial) I can start to discuss what it has to offer.

1: You pay no monthly service fee

2: You pay no transaction fees

3: Free checks (try to find a bank that will give you free checks without paying a monthly fee and come and talk to me then) When you run out of checks you just give them a call and they’ll mail you some more.

4: Free debits/deposits at President’s Choice Financial bank machines and CIBC bank machines across the country.

5: You can link your no fee checking account to their “Interest Plus” account and ear 4.25% on your money (I will review PC Financial’s Interest Plus account in another post)

6: Simple and easy to use online banking platform.

You should know that unlike your typical “big bank,” PC Financial has no branches. But it has “pavilions” where you can go and sign up in person.

For the nitty-gritty you’re going to have to check out PC Financial’s FAQ section over here. I simply do not have the time, space, or inclination to go over every possible question you may have.

Ok, that does it for this review. My next review will include another President’s Choice Financial product – their “Interest Plus” savings account. So stay tuned to this blog for more info.
