Introduction

Payoneer is an excellent payment company which emerged to help workers' who are finding it difficult to receive their pay from other payment systems through the internet. This company does good and great work.

Payoneer is a payment service company that allows people to receive payment from friends and online marketers irrespective of location. The company offers mass payment and works in over 100 countries all over the globe. It works in Pakistan, India, China, Columbia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Congo, Zambia, Ghana, United Kingdom, Turkey, Jamaica, just to mention but a few.

The issue is that notwithstanding that the master cards have been received by a lot of online or internet marketers, the issue is how to link the Payoneer card with PayPal which is the most widely and secure payment service.

In this piece, I will teach you how to link your Payoneer account or card with your PayPal so that you can make a transfer from PayPal to Payoneer and withdraw your money without any much stress.

There are two ways to which you can link and verify your Payoneer account with PayPal and they are:

  • By adding your Payoneer card to PayPal; and
  • By adding Bank account number and the routing number given to you by Payoneer to Paypal.

Linking by Adding Payoneer Master Card to PayPal

Please adhere to the instruction.

To complete this process, you must make sure that you have not less than $2 in your Payoneer account or card as few amount of money will be deducted for verification of your ownership of the account. To complete this process, the steps are:

  • Login to your U.S PayPal account
  • Drag the pointer to the right-hand side of your homepage and hover it on “profile” or on Confirm your account as it may appear.

  • Click on “add/edit credit card”

  • When you click on that, you will be taken to fill your information on the Payoneer card you want to link with the PayPal account.
  • Make sure the name you fill in the form is the same as the one on your Payoneer card as well as the one you answered when signing up for PayPal. An error may occur if they do not match. If they are different, you can signup for another PayPal account using the name on your Payoneer card. Ensure to choose your country as the United States before you succeed in linking your Payoneer Master or debit card with your PayPal account. The reason is because the card is issued by United State Company irrespective of the fact that you will be able to withdraw it from your local bank ATM.
  • In the part bearing “select a card” you are to select master card because the Payoneer debit card is master and not a visa or verve card.
  • At the front of you Payoneer prepaid master card, you will see the expiry date of the card, make sure you input the month and year correctly.
  • Add your Payoneer card verification number. The number is last three digits number located at the back of the card. The digits come after the main card number written on the back of the card. Each Payoneer card has unique card verification number.
  • You can choose the billing address you have on the file already or add a new one. PayPal does not pay much attention to this part because that on my Payoneer is not the same with the one I have on my PayPal account. They focus more on your email address and the account name, others are not all that important.
  • The last is to click on “add card”.
  • If it becomes successful, PayPal will deduct about $1.95 from your Payoneer account and send four digits code to your email. The money will be refunded to you within 24 hours. Payoneer will email to you on the deduction and the code sent to you by PayPal. You are to login to your PayPal account and enter the code as a confirmation and with this, your account becomes linked and verified.

Possible Error that may come up

You may see this error when you click on “add card”: “The bank that issued your card didn't approve this transaction. Please contact the card issuer.s customer service department if you have any questions. Or you can add a different card now to continue.”

Solution to the Error

If you follow the step-by-step guide above, what may be the reason for the error is when your Payoneer account is not active. Payoneer at times put it in that status for security reasons. Take note of that.

To resolve the error or problem, log into your Payoneer account and check if the account is active or not, and activate it if it is not.

Adding bank account number and routing number given to you by Payoneer

This is another way of verifying and linking your Payoneer account with PayPal. I used this method to verify and linked my own Payoneer account. This works even when you do not have any money inside your Payoneer Master card. To verify and Link you Payoneer account with PayPal using this method, this is what you are to do:

  • Login to your U.S PayPal account
  • Drag the pointer to the right hand of your homepage or dashboard and hover it on “profile” or on Confirm your account as it may appear.
  • Choose “Add/Edit Bank Account”
  • Add the account number and routing number given to you by Payoneer.
  • Submit the information and PayPal will automatically generate the bank that Payoneer is in Affiliation with. Most at times, it is usually Bank of America.
  • Small cents will be sent to your Payoneer account by PayPal
  • You are expected to log in to your PayPal and enter the cents in the correct spaces provided to you by PayPal
  • Once you are able to do this correctly, your Payoneer account becomes linked and verified with PayPal.

After this, you can now be able to transfer the money paid into your PayPal to the bank which you added.
Though some other online marketers' may have other payment systems but that of linking Payoneer with PayPal is more reliable. If you have any question, feel free to make your comment in the section provided.

What you need to do is to follow the step by step guide and you will get it right. Goodluck as you try it.

      Kriz, sorry for the bitter experience you are having with Payoneer-Paypal linking. Many things have changed between these two companies for a long time now. Only those who have their Payoneer account linked with Paypal before these changes are still benefiting. Sorry once again for the experience.

      More explanations on your question Heba. Since PayPal allows Egyptians to receive payments into their PayPal accounts, no need for applying for Payoneer account. What you need to do is choose your country as Egypt and link any of your local account numbers or card numbers with it.

      PayPal quotes on their website: "To receive payments with PayPal, choose a Visa card issued in Egypt or a bank account in the U.S. to link to your PayPal account".

      You can add money to your Payoneer account if you are running any online business. Just as you are reading this article, when Hubpages pays into my Paypal account, I transfer the money to my Payoneer card/account and then be able to withdraw because Paypal does not allow withdrawal in Nigeria. Thanks.

      Thanks Mr. Uzochukwu for this well written and vital article. Pls Sir, i prefer to go through the first option on your post, because I feel it will be simpler and faster to verify/link my Paypal account with the Payoneer card since I can withdraw money anywhere, but i dont know how to do that. How can I add money into a Payoneer card? is it to link it with a Nigerian bank account? or...?

      Awaiting your prompt response Sir,

      thank you

      I have read and heard from somewhere that Paypal won't support Payoneer anymore. But that can be old news. I am looking for ways to get my funds from US paypal account to my account in other countries. Can someone confirm that it's Paypal and Payoneer can still be linked? Thanks very much!

      @ Conform, you can get your Payoneer card within one month of its application. Whether you can link it with your First bank Master card is what I do not know.

      Base on my understanding, without PayPal US you cannot link the card.

      There was a time when you couldn't add a payoneer card to paypal. The thing is, paypal wanted to see how you use your account first. This applies to some countries I guess. First you need to have $2 or more on your card. Second, it's better if you have and is receiving funds to your paypal account. At least this will tell paypal how you are using your account. facebook allows you to add you card based on if they feel you are qualified. They may wanna see your activities to be able to make a decision. On the 18 of Feb, 2016 I was able to link mine. I contacted them and explain that I needed my card linked, they review my paypal activities and allow me to link my card after. So it's possible to link you card to paypal. I'm from Jamaica. Email me dwicol@gmail.com and i'll show you proof. I'll take a screen shot and send it back to you. Many people saying it can't be done, so let's prove that wrong.

      Uche, I am so sorry for replying to your question late.

      Let me start by reacting to the error message "Sorry, we can't link this card. Please try linking a different card to your account."

      Payoneer is a United States card which allows you to use it in other countries. So if you want to link any Payoneer card with PayPal, the PayPal must be PayPal United states.

      You may use proxy while opening of the PayPal US.

      You can choose either Nigeria or US address. I think PayPal is aware of Payoneer operation.

      The ideas I presented here is what I know and have not found other means of getting your money transferred.

      @ edwin-john, all I meant here by U.S Paypal account is by opening paypal account (at www.paypal.com) choosing United States as your country before linking with your payoneer account. I explained everything well. You can use your countries phone number and any address of your choice, what is more important here is valid email address. When you apply for the payoneer card and link it to your U.S PayPal account, you become verified automatically. It is as simple as I explained.
