 What if the service is not open for me?

There are two possibilities – you either need to gain eligibility or there is a limitation for your particular account.  Let’s look at both scenarios:


  • Many Payoneer users receive payments in several currencies (USD, EUR, GBP, JPY, etc.). Your account may only be open to make payments from one of these currencies. To see whether the Make a Payment service is open for you, log in to Payoneer, and select a card or currency balance from the drop-down menu at the top of the page (just below the navigation menu). If you are eligible, you will see Pay in the menu.
  • Are you currently receiving payments from Payoneer partners or via the Global Payment Service? Often times, we open our “premium” services only to customers that have been receiving payments from trusted partners or via our most popular services. The best way to gain eligibility is to simply get started receiving payments.
  • Have you filled out the questionnaire and provided a copy of your photo ID? Sometimes we need just a bit more information about you before we can open the service, so if you haven’t already, be sure to provide this information.
