Feature and Account Maintenance Fee of Payoneer

A feature of Payoneer is the Make A Payment service.

Make A Payment to another recipient's Payoneer balance instantly and for free, or pay to your recipients' bank accounts individually or in a batch of up to 200 payments at once.

There is no fee for the Make A Payment service, so if your company has access to Payoneer, use it!

The account maintenance fee of Payoneer is 29.95 USD.

However, if there has been deposit or withdrawal activity within the past 12 months, the account maintenance fee will be waived.

There is also no fee if there is no balance in your account.

We recommend that you use your account in the following cases.

  • You use your account more than once a year
