Payoneer Fees & Timing

Timing

Transfers from Upwork to Payoneer typically take two days to clear. Payoneer has an instant loading option available, for an additional fee of $2.50. You can set this option in your Payoneer account settings.

Payoneer availability, features and fees vary by country and Payoneer may place additional restrictions on your account (especially in certain countries), so check with them for current information. If you recently applied for a card, it can take up to 25 business days to receive the Payoneer Debit MasterCard. You can contact Payoneer to expedite the process with an added fee.


Fees

In addition to a small per-transfer fee Upwork charges, there will be additional costs on Payoneer's side.

  • Potential Payoneer charges include activation, monthly maintenance, and ATM usage. To view pricing information and other terms for your Payoneer card, please visit your Payoneer account.
  • Payoneer may set minimum and maximum transfer amounts. Please see Payoneer for details.

Restrictions

  • You must use your own registered and verified Payoneer account.
  • Payoneer isn't available as a payment method to freelancers in the U.S. and India.

      We will email you as soon as we can.

      Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

      This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

      For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

      We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.

      If all of our agents are busy when you attempt to chat, please hold, and one of our agents will be with you shortly.
