Who can I request payments from?

You can send payment requests to other businesses worldwide. For example, a freelancer can request payments for web development services from a client who is building a web site.

Request a Payment does not support payments from consumers (individuals who are not professionals or businesses) paying in your online store and is not meant to be used as a payment gateway (checkout) for your ecommerce store.

After sending a payment request, how do I receive my payment?

Once you fill out the details of your payment request, we’ll send an email to your client on your behalf, with details on how to pay (you will receive a copy for your records). Your client chooses their preferred method of payment and sends the funds directly to your Payoneer account.

You can withdraw the funds to your bank account or access them with your Payoneer Prepaid Mastercard®.

* If you are based in India, payments received to your Payoneer account are automatically withdrawn to your local bank account within 24 hours.
