Using your mobile phone, Tablet or Computer visit www.payoneer.com on your browser.
Click on “Sign Up”. It will open to the next page where you will be required to fill in your personal details
Remember to fill in your details correctly because any mistake here maybe costly later. Ensure to type in a working email address in the space set apart for it. This is where Payoneer will send you a “confirmation” mail later.
You will be required to click on that confirmation mail sent to your inbox before your account can be fully active and ready to receive payments or just any kind of money online.
You will be required to choose your transaction currency while setting up your account. A lot of people whose country’s currency is not available on the platform use the US Dollar as their transaction currency on Payoneer.
You can choose the same US Dollar or any other currency that you are more comfortable with. Personally I prefer using the American Dollar since it is very popular and easy to carry out transactions with.
After signing up successfully, apply for Payoneer Mastercard.
It is a debit card from Payoneer that you can use to withdraw money from any ATM in the world. You can as well use it for other financial transactions you may have need of, just like your local bank credit and debit cards.
The Payoneer Mastercard is free for all of their customers, regardless of your country.
In the card’s application form, you will be required to enter your physical address where the card will be shipped to.
If you do not already know your ZIP/Postal Code, you can visit your country’s postal service website and figure that out because you will be required to enter it on the application form.
For Nigerians, you can find your State, Local Government Area, Town and Street postal code on NIPOST official website.
Enter the code in the application form alongside other necessary details that are required of you and submit.
After your submission you will have to wait for a maximum of 30 days for the Card to arrive at your doorstep.
If you didn’t receive the Card within this 30 day period, feel free to contact their Customer Care Service and lay your complaints, you will either be sent another Card or whatever delayed the first will be rectified.
Link up your local bank account directly with Payoneer.
This will enable you receive money directly in your local bank account from Payoneer.
After this last step, feel free to give out out your account information to family and friends within and outside the country to send money to you through it because you can now receive money through Payoneer in Nigeria.
If you work online and need to receive payments or carry out any financial transaction, your new Payoneer account can do that perfectly.
For every financial transaction you make on the platform, you will be charged a few tokens just like Paypal and your local banks do.
However, these transaction charges are very small and not so much to be considered a problem.
Overall, you will find Payoneer worth using to receive money online not only in Nigeria but in any part of the world.
If you followed this guide step by step then “Congratulations!” you can now receive money through Payoneer in Nigeria or your own country.
