Advise Needed On Making A Decision As To Withdrawing Fund With Upwork & Payoneer by wane01(m): 8:08am On Apr 04
Hi guys this is somewhat payooner related, but i hope to get some advise.

I tried linking a dorm account owned by someone else to my payoneer account, and i’ve been prompted to provide bank account statement as a means of verification for the added account.

So i wanted to fund Payoneer with my earning on Upwork, then withdraw the money from payoneer to a dorm account before exchanging with a BDC ... they direct bank exchange is too poor + the $30 wire transfer is another rip off ( i’ve already been charged almost $150 as 20% fee by upwork )

I still havent transferred the money yet, but i’m scared of my payoneer account getting frozen due to the verification which i have ignored. I plan getting my own dorm account with GTB next week, so i can use that.

Would you suggest i ignore the pending verification and still transfer the funds? ( would the payoneer account be flagged for this?)

Or would you suggest i get the pending dorm account approved by payoneer first before going further? ( i can reach the account owner for needed documents)

Or would you suggest i just forget about it all and safely withdraw to my local account? ( bearing the low exchange rate.. )

Any advise would be appreciated.
Just in case something goes wrong, who has successfully contacted payoneer support recently?

Note: This is my first attempt at using Payoneer, my local GTB account has been approved by them.
Note: Fund is still safe in my Upwork account ( still deciding on next move to take)

@wane01 Have you done identity verification on payoneer? ( uploading id card and verifying your address by uploading utility bill?) if you have done that you shouldn't have any problem, once you get the funds in your payoneer account just sell the funds here on nairaland, if you haven't done any verification, it is best you wait, payoneer support is terrible. in the past, i have had my money stuck there for more than a month. I won't advice you withdraw the money directly from upwork to your local bank account, the rates are just too bad, unless the money you are withdrawing isn't much or you really need the money now.

I did identity verification using my international passport. I havent been prompted to verify address neither have i seen the place to do it.\

Yea, bank rates are just sad. I had to convert about over $1200 recently at bank rates and i still get upset when i remember it.

can you or have you created a us bank account in global payment service? If you haven't, try to see if you can create a usa bank account, if you can, add the account details to your upwork and use the created us bank account to receive your upwork funds. I would have said you should just link your payoneer account directly to your upwork acc from your upwork payment settings ( you can still do that) but doing it that way, you won't be able to sell the funds until you received funds through global payment service atleast once.

Don't try to add an account with a different name to your Payoneer. Payoneer could ban you permanently if you violate their terms of service

Ha, but i have already initiated the process.

They asked for bank statement as verification. Is there a way i can cancel it or do i just ignore and till my own dorm account is ready?

Is there a way to cancel a pending bank account?

I have already added payoneer to my upwork account, but i havent transferred anything.

I think i saw the global payment service option in Payoneer, i dont know how it works though.
Can we talk on a call or something?

Maybe telegram?
