Payoneer, a cloud-based service, and is also an alternative to the PayPal service, enables you to send & receive money internationally. Money from your Payoneer account can be transferred directly into your local bank account.

The Payoneer card is an excellent solution for authors living in countries where their only option to collect their eBooks royalties is by a check, that Amazon will issue only if their books royalties reach a maximum number.

The Payoneer card gives you a US bank account details and Amazon pays you directly, more often with fewer fees & with no risks of a lost check in the mail.

How to Apply for a Payoneer Card?

You apply for a Payoneer MasterCard account online here, through a simple application process.

Once applying & receiving your card, you will need to activate it online, and you will be required to submit some paperwork such as a copy of your ID and a proof of where you expected the income to be paid from, for example, a link to your eBooks sales page on Amazon.

Payoneer Fees

The Payoneer members’ fee is a yearly charge of $29.95 (*the fee can be deducted from your account as soon as your first eBook royalties from Amazon arrive). There are of course additional fees when using your Payoneer card at the ATM and more per transaction to receive payment (‘funding source’).
