How To Receive Affiliates Earnings Via Payoneer [India]

I’m into (US) Affiliates from last year Black Friday and earned thousands of dollars till date. Since I’m from India and pays through only cheques; there’s no direct deposit or wire transfer facility available for Indian affiliates like Google Adsense.

So, if you’re from India or from a country where the Amazon Direct Deposit is not available and then this how-to guide is for you which will explain how you can get your Amazon U.S. affiliate Payment through direct deposit within 24 hrs.

Issues with Amazon

One thing I didn’t like of Amazon is that you can’t track your cheques (I don’t know Why they do so) as these are sent through Normal United States Postage and it’ll take around two weeks to reach Metro cities in India and can take up to a month if you’re from other cities or rural area. Many times my cheques returned back to Amazon, Seattle without even any notification. And if you’re cheque once returned, you’ve to report it from affiliate account and ask for re-issue. It’ll again take 1-2 month to get and encash it. Once you get the cheque you’ve to again wait for another 10-15 days or more depending on your bank to encash it. So, basically I was totally fed up from this Amazon affiliate payment method and I started looking for an alternative to this.

One day I posted the issue on Twitter and @Payoneer hit me back, Hey you can use Payoneer to receive your Amazon U.S. affiliates earnings, it’s fast, low-fee and secure. And after some research on Payoneer, I created the account on immediately and it took around a week to get my account approved. But these days you can get your account approved within 24 hrs.

How to Receive Amazon U.S. Affiliate Payment Via Payoneer?

Yesterday, I got my affiliate earnings through Payoneer and I’m pretty impressed by their service. Amazon usually dispatch the cheques or do direct deposit (Only for US, UK Affiliates) on 28 of every month and you’ll be surprised to know on 28 September itself I got my earnings in my Payoneer Account and on 29 I got my earnings in local currency directly in my Indian bank account. And the best part is, I didn’t have to pay so much fee for this transaction.

Now, if you’re from India or from other countries where the Amazon Direct Deposit is not available like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal etc. then you must be thinking how can I get rid of this Amazon cheque method and opt for Payoneer to receive my affiliate earnings. Don’t worry, I’ll explain you each and everything from changing your payment method to receive funds but this article may no longer so grab a coffee and relax.

What is Payoneer?

Payoneer is Global Payment service which allows you to get your earnings from US & European companies directly in your bank account in your local currency at minimal cost. You’ll be provided with a US bank account number and routing number that you need to give your affiliate company to receive funds. It’s like you have an account in US & Europe. Payoneer supports all big companies from US & Europe like Amazon, Google, 99Designs, Elance, oDesk, Getty Images and much more. Click here to check the list of Payoneer supported companies. Still, have any kind of doubt about Payoneer? Watch this video:

What about the fee & Exchange rates In Payoneer?

This is the question we ask when we hear about any new payment service and here are the answers when it comes to leader Payoneer.

  • Receiving Payments: Receiving both US & Euro Payments in Pioneer is completely free.
  • Withdraw funds: The main thing is withdrawing funds and exchange rates. Transferring funds to your bank account are again free in Payoneer means you’ll get the exact amount of dollars or euros that company has sent you. Now, you must be thinking how is Payoneer earning then? 😉 Read the next paragraph.
  • Exchange Rates: Payoneer provides the best exchange rates if you compare to other Global financial services like Paypal and others because Payoneer conversion rates based on the official mid-market rate at the time of transfer. Mid-Market here refers to the middle point between the currency’s official “buy” and “sell” rate and is considered to be one of the best rates available. You can use the tools like XE to estimate mid-market rate.
    In addition to the mid-market rate, Payoneer applies a currency conversion charge of 2% and that’s the only Payoneer fee for receiving funds to your Payoneer account to transferring and withdrawing funds in your local bank.

Note: Payoneer doesn’t show exchange rates in your dashboard if you want to check the exchange rate for your transaction go to this Mastercard page and it’ll show you the exchange rate after selecting the date of the transaction. The rates shown on this will be in ‘USD per 1 INR’, if you want to check out exact mid-market exchange rate you got, check XE mid-market.

Payoneer Purpose Code

Recently I’ve received a couple of queries from readers asking for Payoneer Purpose code. Purpose Code is nothing, it just describes the nature of Foreign Exchange Transaction that helps RBI to identify and classify the Forex transactions. So, you need to select the purpose code which accurately describes your business transactions. Here are all the purpose codes from RBI along with Purpose description to give you an idea of which purpose code is suitable for your Business Transactions.

In the case of affiliate, the purpose code would be Advertising, trade fair services (P1007) that include services related to SEOs, SEMs, Social Media, Web Designing and even Internet Marketing. So, if you fall into this category then just select this purpose code and click update.

Every social or online account of my blogs are signed-in in work profile while my personal account and social channels I manage from my personal account.
