      Dear RWC,
      Finally what I have been looking forward to has come through. I have been using a very punitive payment method for lack of another option. The Debit MasterCard will save me a lot of hard earned monies incurred in the past as transfer fees.

      Kudos RWC! We are growing!

      Is it possible to transfer money from Paypal to Payoneer directly?

      • June 21st, 2011 at 8:43 am

        No, that is impossible. Thank you

      How does this system works? Is it similar to paypal? Will this not create a problem on our accounts? How does it differ with paypal?

      • June 21st, 2011 at 8:43 am

        PayPal and Wire Transfer remain as the standard payment processing options. The payments are going to be handled as usual, we are just adding another payment processing alternative – Payoneer. More details on Payoneer payment processing here:
        Thank you

    • June 20th, 2011 at 7:21 pm

      I hope this option will be available soon and also with an option of linking to an already available Mastercard.

      This is some really good news. Can you tie the Payoneer to a Visa debit card. Kindly let us know.

      • June 21st, 2011 at 8:49 am

        Payoneer will only work with a card issued by them: only a Payoneer powered MasterCard will be a suitable option to work with, using this payment option.

      That’s great! Are you considering moneybookers any time soon?

      • June 21st, 2011 at 8:47 am

        The RWC is working to bring as many payment processing options as possible. Our staff is working on Moneybookers, but at this point there is no specific information – we can’t guarantee that this payment processing option is going to be implemented! Thank you.

      • June 22nd, 2011 at 5:52 am

        Hello Tanya,
        Thank you too, we are happy that you are going to find the following payment method to be useful! Thanks again!

    • June 22nd, 2011 at 8:00 am

      What a reprieve!!! I am eagerly waiting for the introduction of payoneer, which is the most efficient method of payment. Money at my hands in seconds! This is marvelous. Thanks Alex and not forgetting the entire RWC team. Bravo.

    • June 22nd, 2011 at 8:11 am

      Hi guys!

      I’m happy to see you all excited about Payoneer. I am Talia, Payoneer’s director of community.

      As Alex has already said, the Payoneer card is a MasterCard (not a Visa). You cannot currently withdraw from PayPal to Payoneer, unfortunately.

      If you have any questions, we are available to answer them on our forums, Facebook, and Twitter, so just let us know.

      Welcome aboard!

      • June 22nd, 2011 at 9:11 am

        Thanks a lot, Talia:) I’m sure, that all of our users will appreciate your support, so as the RWC staff! :)

      June 22nd, 2011 at 9:02 am

      Thank you. At last Payoneer is here. I already have a Payoneer mastercard and it will come in handy. No more payment waits. this is great news RWC. Axex, do I need to renew my card if I have not used it for a while? How?

      • June 22nd, 2011 at 9:14 am

        If it’s not expired, then you should be fine! :) You can also check out the Payoneer forums, blog and contact their support for more details, as stated by Talia from Payoneer, here:)

      This will surely drive me to more productivity. i must confess i was reluctant to write for RWC because of the payment options. but now, viola! Great work RWC.

        You should definitely try it out! :)

    • Joseph Wamwere

      It is a great move, however, am looking forward the day you will introduce MONEYBOOKERS.

      • June 29th, 2011 at 6:10 am

        As stated earlier – the Billing Dpt. is considering this payment method. But there is no guarantee that it will be implemented. Thank you!

      I have used several cards since 2007 including GKard, ikobo and Payoneer. However of all this debit cards, Payoneer debit mastercard stands out from the crowd. It’s the safest, fastest, cheapest and most reliable mass payment method available globally.

      Thanks Guys.


      • July 6th, 2011 at 5:26 am

        No problem:) Our pleasure:)

      at last,..i must say that of late the wire transfer payment mode has deteriorated so much that i receive my payment so late by about 11 days, which is just 4 days to the next payment period, funny..i wonder if its just me.
      But what i am surprised here is that Alex actually says that this payment option is not yet confirmed…in that case should you not just focus on making the wire transfer payment method much faster (like it used to be) instead of exciting people about another payment option that you are not sure if you want to implement…why is everyone excited here..well i will be excited when it comes to pass

      • July 8th, 2011 at 5:53 am

        Actually, the deal with the Payoneer is secured. We just need time to implement it – so basically it is in place, and is going to be available for sure. We are not sure about Moneybookers – this payment option is still under investigation from the Billing Dpt. Thanks

        Hey, thanks a lot for your feedback!

    • July 9th, 2011 at 7:53 am

      I have heard people talk about debit cards/master cards and I have never used any of them. I want to apply for my first salary yet I have neither chosen a payment method nor submitted my bank details. My question is, after submitting my bank details and choosing wire transfer or pay pal as my payment method, will the money be transferred directly into my bank account or I will have to apply for debit card to receive my payment?

      • July 11th, 2011 at 5:49 am

        Dear Simon, those peculiarities depend on the payment method. You can find out more about each one of them at your local bank, you can also contact the Billing Dpt. at our site (through LIve Chat with the support team or by sending a suggestion message). Additionally you can find more details at, thank you! Have a great day!

      Have worked with payoneer and their services are excellent! Am glad you are introducing this mode of payment and I think I can now work with your company. Am registering just now.

      • July 11th, 2011 at 5:50 am

        Hi Phyllis,
        We are glad to hear that! Have a great day! :)

      the question now how soon is soon.

      • July 14th, 2011 at 2:28 pm

        Well, there are a lot of things, which we should consider when setting up a new payment method: so the process is quite lengthy. But is should not take more than a couple of weeks! Thanks :)

      Payoneer is definitely a step in the right direction. Just by providing an extra payment alternative is a means to better employee service through flexibility. Speed moneybookers too. This will allow writers to choose the payment option that suits their needs.However, payoneer is the best alternative and i hope it works in every country. Kudos admin. for dedicated efforts at making staff happy. A smile staff is a guarantee to quality work.

      • July 18th, 2011 at 6:40 am

      July 19th, 2011 at 4:31 am

      I thought this was to ease all writer’s payment processing, not some writer’s payment processing. I already have another payoneer card with a different Payoneer-partner; seems I have to wait to link RWC to that card, :(

      • July 19th, 2011 at 5:26 am

        Well, first of all, if you noticed, there were changes, which affected all of the writers: we’ve changed the payment processing guide and added a FAQ section, specifically for payments. So we are pretty sure, that this affects ALL of the writers (given that we’ve also changed the payment options page and added a bit of functionality). As for an existing Payoneer card – of course, you have to wait in order to connect RWC to an existing card! It’s not like you’re giving your name to a stranger, it’s like you’re giving all of your personal data to a stranger. That’s why the verification is a serious procedure, which might take time. We thought, this should be understandable right from the start. Thank you for your feedback!

      First give credit where it is is due.The other details will follow later. I also have a payoneer card from another payoneer partner and am willing to wait for further directives. Once again “2 Thumbs Up”

      July 19th, 2011 at 7:26 am

      Let me put my earlier comment into context. I was commenting in reference only to payoneer, thus I chose this thread rather than the more recent thread concerning the whole spectrum of changes to payment processes. To clarify, my concern is about the eligibility criteria. More specifically, it seems someone like phyllis, who in an earlier comment indicated being lured to signing up by prospects of Payoneer, may, after all, have to wait for at least 3-months to access payoneer as a payment option within RWC. For all those who have been previously using payoneer, such seems an unnecessary impediment since one furnishes ones details for each card one has, details that are required for card activation on receipt.

      • July 19th, 2011 at 8:32 am

        Hello, Miriti!
        Well, there’s nothing we can do about it – as you know, online security is a real issue nowadays, and now – more than ever. So it’s understandable while it takes time to verify a certain account (you have to remember that there are tons of people applying for a Payoneer card every day), so you have to be patient! Thank you for your understanding!

      September 7th, 2011 at 11:15 am

      I hope that you can also include MONEYBOOKERS as a payment method sometime. It would make it so much better for some of us.

      • September 14th, 2011 at 5:32 am

        Hello, Lucy! Yes, sure – as stated earlier, we can’t promise anything, but our Billing Dpt. is working on the issue.

      September 15th, 2011 at 3:49 pm

      This is much better as it will save me the $20 deduction each time I request early payment seeing as attaining the minimum $400 for automatic payment for wire transfer has been elusive to me so far. To the gutter with wire transfers
