Most freelance websites and affiliate sites offer Kenyans the ability to own their own Payoneer card if and when their online earnings reaches the required payment limit.

A payoneer card is a US issued mastercard that is internationally accepted and can be used on ATMs globally. However you should know that ATM withdrawal fees with a payoneer card can be high so you should use it mostly for just making withdrawals for your monthly earnings.

I said you can withdraw from your Paypal account if you have a Payoneer card and virtual US bank account. Payoneer are now offering members the ability to have a sort of virtual US bank account and it works in such a way that you won't need to travel to the USA just to open a bank account and yet be able to withdraw funds to it from your Paypal account.

Paypal doesn't allow direct withdrawals to Kenyan banks
According to Paypal Kenya, you can send and receive money online using Paypal but for now you can't withdraw to a local bank in Kenya except to a US bank account and that has been a burden for many. However if you have a Payoneer US bank account, you can then withdraw frm Paypal and then be able to use your Payoneer mastercard to withdraw locally from Mastercard branded ATMs in the local currency in Kenya.

How to get a Virtual bank account from Payoneer
- You need to apply first after having a long standing relationship with the company
- If approved, you will be able to do online banking with your account and receive funds as if it were a real bank account
- Approval is not automatic so not everybody may be approved.

However, if you have been earning a good amount of money online with a Payoneer card, your chances of getting a US bank account through them are good.


Once the funds hav been withdrawn from Paypal to your Payoneer virtual bank account, you can then withdraw it with your Payoneer card at acceptable ATMs.

If you have a US or UK mastercard attached to a US or Uk bank, you can always withdraw Paypal from it.

I have a Paypal MasterCard and a payoneer MasterCard. I prefer the Paypal as it tends to be be faster, cheaper and more convenient. Funds can be withdrawn two minutes after withdrawing them from your Paypal account. If you would like to get a Paypal MasterCard, feel free to contact me. I can help.

I applied for a Payoneer Card late last year. It took 3 weeks 2 arrive n they quickly assigned me a virtual account. And then the headache began. Getting the card verified requires a lot of personal information, including a screenshot of your Paypal account, with your balance on display. There is also the annual $29 fee. For someone who is starting out trying to earn an income online and in desperate need of every shilling, I warn all who wish to apply to Payoneer to exercise a lot of patience.
Githinji, Id like more information about the Paypal Mastercard. Please drop me a line at raychelin at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

Hi,

Am happy to hear that. PayPal may lose it's market share to Payoneer, which is less discriminatory and more diverse. I like that.
