When it comes to withdrawing money earned form Blogging or Affiliate marketing, then PayPal and Payoneer are most used payment processors to send money globally with ease. All companies are using these payment processing systems to send funds or payments to their publishers/employees globally.
Here in this post, we are gonna review the Payoneer services for India and how it helps thousands of affiliate marketers, bloggers, freelancers, digital entrepreneurs to receive cross-border payments easily.
Payoneer only helps in withdrawing funds in local currency but also offers you, individual; business virtual bank account for most of the countries like U.S.A, Australia, Europe, U.K, etc. so you can tell your, clients, to send you money locally in your virtual bank account and that money deposited automatically gets transfer to your Indian bank account in local currency.
Payoneer Global Bank Transfer India
Indian bloggers and freelancers use Paypal as it is most command and widely spread. Earlier in 2011 Payoneer master card was also being used in India to withdraw freelancing payments but RBI (Reserve bank of India) stopped Payoneer from continuing its services in India and later on in 2013 Payoneer again resumed its services by allowing Global Bank transfer (GBT) legally in India with better innovative Idea.
Now coming to the point, Indian publishers, Bloggers, Affiliate marketers, Freelancers earn online and to withdraw payments they use Paypal as Wire transfer is costly, and checks need a lot of time to reach.
However many companies have also enabled Direct Bank transfer service for Indian users which is an easy and better than all the payment processing systems.
Getting Paid through PayPal
PayPal is the most accepted way to get your hard earned money into your bank account. As per the RBI guidelines, Indian users can not shop online with Paypal balance, they can only withdraw it. Here are some of the Pros and Cons of Paypal for Indian Publishers.
Pros of Paypal for Indian Users:
- Easy to manage without any limitations
- Users can shop online using their credit card with Paypal

- Paypal takes 3-5 working days to get funds transfers in the bank account

However, if you are working with a company or CPA Network which does not have Payoneer or PayPal as their payment options and only pays via Wire or ACH direct deposit in the U.S or other countries, then you may use Payoneer bank account details and get paid to your local bank account via them.
I am also a blogger and Affiliate marker, since two years I was using Paypal and I am still using it as without PayPal blogging is incomplete But I have opted Payoneer in some companies over Paypal as they are fast and rates are reasonable.
Money always matters.. and who don’t want to get more money😜😜
Try Payoneer for Withdrawing Funds as it deposits the money in the same day, so you receive till evening or next business day.

Have you tried transferring funds to local bank account in india ? I am curious to know if it really takes same or next business day. Paypal takes long time. If its NEFT and deposits within same or next business day, it would be great. Please let us know.
Hello Abhish, I am using Payoneer personally and my other friends bloggers are also using it, i have received my funds on next business days in bank account via neft , AND Paypal takes 3-5 Working days.
Also forex conversation rates of Payoneer are much better then Paypal, You will receive more funds with payoneer as compared to Paypal.
Give it a Try!
Thanks ALi for the review, Payoneer seems to be much better option for Freelancers now.
hey i’m from Pakistan, , when it comes to freelancing the freelancing sites require either payoneer master card or paypal to transfer money. There’s never an option for global bank transfer atleast i have not seen it. If you can tell me any website(mainly free lancing sites) that transfer your earned money directly to payoneer (Global transfer service account) please let me know,
Hello hassan, Salamwalikum… and thanks for stopping by..
Payoneer Works with GBT in India as payoneer master card is Blocked in India by RBI. for the sits which shows to withdraw funds using payoneer Prepaid card, You need to click on the link and then SIGN IN instead of creating account new account. When you sign in using your Payoneer GBT Details, the new finding source will automatically created. I know payoneer GBT works in India very well, not sure about PAK, you need to confirm it with Payoneer support.
Freelancing Sites like: ODESK.com, ELANCE.com FREELANCER.com, etc allows payoneer GBT and prepaid MasterCard for withdraw of Funds.

You may change the bank account by contacting Payoneer
