Payoneer Now Allows Withdrawal of Funds to Pakistani Bank Accounts

Paynoneer, the global payment processing system, has now opened its wire transfer services for banks in Pakistan, with which, anyone with a Payoneer account will be able to transfer funds from their Payoneer account to a local bank account in Pakistan.

This is essentially going to help Pakistani freelancers who face trouble in charging their foreign clients; especially when PayPal and other popular services don’t work in Pakistan.

Just in case if you don’t know, anyone with a Payoneer account can accept payments from anyone in the world.

Earlier Freelancers used to withdraw their funds through Payoneer ATMs, which was an expensive sport, since there’s notable transaction charge of PKR 750 attached with every transaction users do with Payoneer ATM withdrawals.

Now Payoneer users can simply add their Pakistani bank accounts and request for a withdrawal.

Payoneer

Currently the minimum limit for a bank withdrawal is set at US 200 dollars.

It must be noted that Payoneer currently doesn’t support Pakistani Rupee as a currency, which means your local bank in Pakistan will charge 3.5% currency exchange fee out of these funds as well.

It merits mentioning here that funds transfer from Payoneer into a bank account will be a usual wire transfer and may take 2-5 working days.

  • Sohail Mirza

    My first Payoneer Bank withdrawal is on its way.
    For larger withdrawals, banks will ask what is payoneer and they will never recognize it as a “Source of income”. I don’t know why freelancers are treated this way.

    • Akhter Wahab

      you can withdraw in PKR accounts but no tin USD accounts which is a state bank policy .. well every foreign remittance you have to sign a document in bank

      • Sohail Mirza

        Payoneer only allows it in PKR, what is that document which we have to sign? You sure there wont be any problem in making them understand about the legitimacy of this payment.

        • Farhan

          Why would there be problem? I’ve been receiving for past few months. As long as your bank account is active there won’t be any issue!

          • Sohail Mirza

            If we get more than the given “Source of Income” i heard they question then

            • nhi krty bhai..ap k konsay crore aany hai account mein..

            • Ali Raza

              Open usd currency account with your current account and then transfer your money in that usd account so you will not face any problem.

            I also want to work online Can you please guide me how to work and earn.

            • Muntazir Mehdi

              have u succeeded?

        • Mr-Shahroz Khan

          Yes its legal you just have to provide your company or service legal documents and policy terms conditions and there is no worries you can go smooth in any way as you wants.

          • Sabeen Khan

            Koi mujhe bata sakta hai kay agar main Payoneer par bank account mein withdraw karwaun funds, tu jiske naam par payoneer card hai usi ka bank account bhi daalna zaruri hai? Main aur meri dost aik saath kaam karte hain. Card uske naam par bana hua hai. Maine uska bank account daala hai. Likin mujhe apna bhi saath daalna hai. Payoneer wale verify karlenge ya woh reject kardenge mera bank account?

            • Mr-Shahroz Khan

              no they will not accept that :(

            • Waqas Amjad Sethi

              best is that you open up a joint account with your freinds and your name.

              I am assuming the revenue collected on Payoneer is for IT services. Have that amount remitted to your joint account will let you enjoy the tax credit too for exempt income.

              IF the payment only comes to your partner’s account, he will be able to get tax benefit but you won’t.

            • Pixel Picker

              hi
              don’t worry.
              wo accept kr lenge. mere bhi couzn ka account tha or card bhi us k nam pr tha lekin me ne unhen apna bank account dia to unhon ne verification mangi thi.
              unhon ne pocha tha k ye jo bank account ap ne add kia hae ye kis ka hae.
              neche bht se options then.
              jis me ye bhi ek option thi k kea ye apke employ ka hae to mene us pe clik kr dia.
              or ab me us bnk account se paisay withdraw krwata hn.
              don’t worry. just do it.

            • Steve Johnson

              If you open a joint account, the account will be able to accept online transactions and swift transfers made in the name of either of the account holder. Thus you will be able to use the joint account number and YOUR NAME in payoneer and it will work just fine. I know for sure that it works with Dubai Islamic Bank!

            • Ch Zia

              yes you can do it. no matter same name . mera khud ka add hai bank account alag name se.

    • Rehan Zahid

      just open an Foreign Currency account to save conversion charges :)

      • Sohail Mirza

        Payoneer only offers it in PKR, they do the conversion and 2% less to mid market rate.

      • KMQ

        Bhai khola tha Dollar account bhi, but kuch months chalane ke baad bank walon ne khud hi keh dia close kardo warna is main kafi lambi phateekain hogayi hain ab, buhat sare documents sign karne parainge and yeh and woh.

        So usko close kar ke phir PKR khol lia. waise Bank Al Habib ke conversion rates itne bude bhi nahi hain. Baki banks ke muqable tu mujhe behtar lage.

        • Sohail Mirza

          Payoneer conversion ker k bhejy ga in PKR, only PKR is supported as of now for Pakistan

          • KMQ

            Matlab transaction hogi hi PKR main? USD show hi nahi karega aapke bank statement main?

            • Sohail Mirza

              Yes, try adding a bank account into payoneer and it will be clear to you.

              • KMQ

                Boss maine use nahi kia Payoneer kabhi, Skrill use karta tha kisi zamane main woh bhi band hogaya PK main.

                • Junaid Rehman

                  I use skrill and transfer funds from payoneer to skrill and then withdraw to my bank

                  • KMQ

                    acha, aap kab se use kar rahe hain yeh? Maine kafi arsa pehle use karta tha aur 1-2 saal pehle Skrill walon ne Pakistan ki support khatam kardi thi, ab kia dobara shuro hogaye hai?

                    • Junaid Rehman

                      Mein tu kafi arsay say use kar raha hon. Skrill is good.

                    • KMQ

                      I know boss Skrill is really good, magar mere pas tu emails aai then support band hone ki. Chalo thanks for informing phir se check karonga main usko.

                      Han Skrill main ek mushkil yeh thi ke Skrill se aap USD withdraw karo tu woh pehle pound se dollar main convert karte hian aur phir send karte hain. So most of the times $25 ki fee lagti thi mujhe. Aur bank wale kehte they yeh hum nahi deduct karte yeh jo UK se aata hai dollar main covert hoke unki fees hai something

                    what was the last time you did that? what else is charged along with 3.95 eur? have you tried receiving in eur currency account in pakistan.

                    • Junaid Rehman

                      I use SCB and they auto convert euro to rupees

                    • Umair Sharif

                      Hi Junaid, I recently make a transaction using skrill and they deduct USD 23.16 as receive money fee, do you know what its about? have they ever charged this sort of amount to you?

                    • Junaid Rehman

                      Hi I withdraw $100 to $150 and they not deduct as much amount. Usually $3 to $5

                    • Steve Johnson

                      Your account is probably now a MERCHANT account! Skrill automatically convert an account to a MERCHANT account once you have crossed a certain transaction limit. Then the incoming/receiving charges of 2.5% to 3.5% come into effect! Thats why skrill is only good until a certain limit. After that the charges for incoming transactions become high and you have to switch to WIRE 2USD or WIRE 2PKR (assuming you are using upwork/odesk) or any similar online marketplace site.

          Same here…
          Ma na bhi $ account last month close karwa deya ha. Ab Standard Chartered open market sa around 4 to 5 rupees per dollar kam da raha ha.

          • KMQ

            Bhai try bank al habib inke rates are way better, abhi 2 din pehle hi 104.45 pe convert hue hain mere pas aur market rate 105.25 tha

            • ahsen

              Thanks Bro.

            • Carl Brandson

              So, the conversion rate they provide is around Rs.104 for $1 and what is the transaction fees associated!!!

              • KMQ

                no transaction fee, transaction fee is beard by the person who is sending the remittance. So no charges on Bank Al Habib’s End

                • Carl Brandson

                  You mean from Payonner to Bank there’s no charges at all! And How much do you got in terms of Rupees against $1 ???

                  • KMQ

                    No I meant when someone sends amount through their bank to Al Habib then there are no charges on Al Habib’s end, because the transactions charges would be paid by the one who sends the money.

                    Regarding Payoneeer charges, a lot of other users have commented on this thread which might be helpful for you.

                  • KMQ

                    No I was talking about normal remittance not sure about Payonner charges. I guess you can see other people comments here in this thread as alot of users have shared their experience.

          • Steve Johnson

            Best exchange rate is offered by Dubai Islamic Bank for incoming USD transfers. There rate 2-4 Rs lower than the market rate. Sometimes there rate is higher than the market rate. Only the following problems:
            1. You must get a rate from treasury before 4:00PM bank timings.
            2. Your branch manager has to manually approve the transfer/conversion. He gets an email for that and if he is on holidays or forgets that specific email, the transaction is not committed (but this is a problem with all banks)
            3. You will probably need to submit an invoice beforehand for seamless commit.
            4. 20 USD will be deducte by SCM NOSTRO when DIB receieves the SWIFT message from SCB. DIB does not have their own NOSTRO branch. SO they use the SCB Nostro and SCB Nostro charges them 20USD per transaction.

    • Faisal Iqbal

      Plz post here what exchange rate you get when you receive your amount. This service is not new, I have used it around a year ago, but the exchange rate was terrible. I got PKR 80 per dollar whereas the inter-bank rate was over 100 those days. They also have a pathetic customer support, when I reached them to investigate this issue, they simply replied back to me that they have no control over the intermediate banks. My bank, however, denied any extra charges or fee charged by them. Since then, I never tried this service again.

    • Because freelancers don’t pay taxes. If you incorporate your business, get an NTN on its name and pay taxes, banks will facilitate and government will recognise you as legitimate business.

        Hello dear i want some help about account…

    • Waqar

      Best of luck with the payment then man, I made a small withdrawl of about 280 USD a year from now and they made me wait for more than 2 months, I kept calling payoneer and they said the funds are already sent, I called the bank and they kept saying we don’t know!
      When it did come after I used some friends at HBL who checked, the Bank wala kept calling and making rude arguments on who sent the money and why, that IDIOT made it fucking miserable for me to freelance.
      In my opinion the card is best, yes it cuts alot especially when you need to make a transaction more than 20,000 Pkr but the bank transfer is just not worth it….!
      Please keep me posted when you hear from this.

      • Abid Ali

        That might be the case but not now.

        I have made successful withdrawal and it landed in my account in 3 days. Only 2% less rate than market.

        • Waqar

          Which bank service do you use? And does this money transfer add up to the tax setup?

          • Abid Ali

            I received exact Rs 20841.22 for $203 as Payoneer quoted. No fees or tax deduction. Money received as home remittance in HBL in 3 days.

            • Waqar

              I used hbl as well man, you have no idea what they made me go through :(
              A month late service…!

              • Abid Ali

                I don’t know, I have made another withdrawal. I’ll see if I it land in my account in 3 days or in a month.

            • Hamza Bin Amin

              Hey Abid. Does HBL deduct any money when you transfer money from Payoneer to their bank account?

              • Abid Ali

                No, you’ll receive full amount without any deduction.

                • Hamza Bin Amin

                  Are you still usin HBL?. I have a couple of questions, hope you can help me;
                  1. If you have used fiverr then can you tell me how much money they deduct in transferring amount to payoneer card?
                  2. Also do you have any experience in doing ATM withdrawals through HBL ATM?
                  3. For bank transfers, does UBL deduct any charges? Any idea?

        • Mareeyakhan

          Great, its my 3rd day and im also nervous anxiously waiting for the cash to arrive. its confusing how there is no sign of the money except in payoneer transactions to some where in newyork! wire transfer is confusing for me.

          • University Explorer

            Please share your experience when it is arrived

            • Mareeyakhan

              Sure, i transferred $244 to my bank from payoneer and after three days payoneer sent me an email saying that now my dollars have been to converted into PKR and it will be available in pakistani account within 3 working days. I am glad because payoneer only deducted 500 PKR. i donot know much about dollar exchange rates so i use google for dollar conversion. 500pkr is nothing as compared to what i was paying to three different financial institutions

              • University Explorer

                Please let us know the conversion rate of USD to PKR

                • Mareeyakhan

                  It has arrived and it is the same money as payoneer told me. payoneer only deducted $5 for the whole process. instead of 25563.88 i received 25,037.05.
                  Which is the best because previously i was paying $3 to Fiverr, $3 to payoneer and 1100pkr to standard chartered! So now you can do your judgement which one is a better option?

                  • Umer Khayyam Sheikh

                    Can you please tell me that in which bank you transferred the amount? I have my account in Standard Chartered and i’m not sure if they will charge me anything for this wire transfer or not. Appreciate your help. Thanks.

      • Fahad Hasan

        Things seem to have changed now. I withdrew $230, from my Payoneer account, on 21st June and received PKR 23076.14 in my Faysal Bank account today, i.e. 25th June.

        • Waqar

          Yar still like a 1000 Pkr ka difference… .2% bohot ziada lagta hai mujhay dont you think?

    • Mareeyakhan

      Hi, did you receive your payment? it is my third day and no sign of it.. i am a bit nervous i have never used wire transfer before

    • Hirra Daanial

      Compared to withdrawing from an atm which is more cost effective? e.g. If I withdraw $2000 an atm total deducts I believe $200-250 altogether. How much will the bank deduct on a total of $2000 withdrawn?

      • Hirra Daanial

        no from atm withdrawing $2000 deducts only $124 from the total amount I believe. I take out Rs. 20,000 and it shows $203.20 deducted. Rs. 1,245 deducted from each withdrawal x 10 withdrawals is Rs. 12,450

  • KMQ

    It must be noted that Payoneer currently doesn’t support Pakistani Rupee as a currency, which means your local bank in Pakistan will charge 3.5% currency exchange fee out of these funds as well.

    Yeh point samajh nahi aaya, 3.5% currency exchange fee kia?

    • Abid Ali

      Wait for some one to withdraw and you’ll see it. All withdrawals will go through by Tuesday at least.

      • KMQ

        woh tu theek hai magar is post main aisa likha hua hai ke jaise har bar $ recieve karne par 3% charges lagte hain. Halanke aisa kuch meray sath tu nahi. Is liye confirming…

        • Abid Ali

          Maine $203 transfer kiya. Mujhay exact Rs. 20,841.22 milay HBL me. Much better than ATM.

    • aamir7

      Dollars jab PKR account main ayain gay tu exchange fee katati hay 3.5 percent

        Aacha strange, mere pas account main jo remittance aati hai $ main us par tu aisi koi exchange fee deduct nahi hoti…

          • KMQ

            Agreed but, how did you came to that 3.5% mark?

            I just got a remittance 2 days back and the rate I got was 104.48 where as the market rate is around 105.25. My point is how you got to the calculation of 3.5%, I think that is misleading.

    • Abid Ali

      So, they gave good rates, better than ATM withdrawals. I just request withdrawal to my Bank.

      • Sohail Mirza

        Please respond here after 3 days how much you got in your bank account along with bank name.

        • Abid Ali

          I just got the exact amount in my HBL account. It took only 2 days for the funds to reach my account. Rs. 102.67/dollar.

          • Sohail Mirza

            does it show rate before final withdrawal request? or on request it displays the rate? I mean can we see rate before confirming withdrawal?

    • Mareeyakhan

      Payoneer does support PKR. I just received a confirmation email and that they are transferring PKR to my account

      • Zaid

    Yep, I added my bank account few days ago. You can withdraw minimum of $200. I think it will be better than ATM withdrawals which today costs $201.13 for Rs. 20K.

    • KMQ

      aare is main tu buhat nuksaan hai around 100 ka para ek dollar. Where as market rate is around 105.

    • Sheeraz Mughal

      201.13 dollar for Rs 20k …. ?? you mean one has to pay 201.13 dollar to withdraw 20k per ???? common $201= 20100 Rs …. pls check ur post.

      • Sohail Mirza

        Some recent withdrawals

        • KMQ

          Got you matlab withdrawal main aap PKR hi daloge, thanks for sharing. aur $2.15 Withdrawal fee is really really reasonable. I hope banks don’t deduct any money in between.

        • KMQ

          Han ek cheez Sohail bhai is main bhi dollar around 100 ka hi par raha hai, jo ke ek bhai ke mutabiq Payoneer ke ATM withdrawal par bhi around itne ka hi parta tha.

  • Help

    and what is swift code.
    thanks in advance

    • KMQ

      Bhai aapke pehle sawal ka tu mujhe pata nahi. Baki swift code ki definition neeche likhi hai jo Google bhai ne batai hai.

      A SWIFT code is an international bank code that identifies particular banks worldwide. It’s also known as a Bank Identifier Code (BIC). CommBank uses SWIFT codes to send money to overseas banks. A SWIFT code consists of 8 or 11 characters.

      Ab rahi baat ke aap apne bank ka swift code kaise maloom karainge tu woh aapko following link se pata chal jaega. But mera mashwara hoga ke aap apne bank ja kar ya call kar ke ek dafah confirm zarror kar lijye ga swift code.

  • Pakistanis are wasting their exchange they payoneer either thru atm it wire transfer. Atm withdrawal in pak rs. 750 + exchange difference of 5%. You get $ @ pkr 99 while open market is 105.
    Its waste unless you also spend payoneer $ in foreign purchase like server payment , domain etc

    • Abid Ali

      We get Rs. 101 on ATM withdrawals. Use your maths, yesterday they charged $201.15, $3.15 is Payoneer fees. So you withdrew $198. So 20,000/198= Rs.101.

  • I don’t know if this is relevant, but I have a question.
    When I need to buy some services from WordPress, or I have to pay someone through Fiverr, they don’t accept, because Pakistan is not in their list. Can Payoneer help me in this regard? Can I pay them through Payoneer? How?

    • MIS

      what services are you getting from fiverr? may be ur country fellow can provide to you on better price…

  • naveed

    A few clarifications for you guys. Payoneer is expensive, they Charge 30 USD annual maintenance fee and then 1.5 percent for every transaction you receive. When you withdraw from ATM they charge 2.75% Currency Conversion (they charge local banks have nothing to do with it) of mid-market currency, if you do a wire transfer they will charge 2% of the mid market currency rate now in pakistan if you withdraw money through standard chartered, Standard Chartered will charge 300 extra. Bank Alflah won’t charge that extra 300. let me sum it up with you for example if you received a 1000 dollars in a year if you withdraw it through ATM you will pay ( 30 Dollars Annual Fee, 15 Dollars Transaction Fee, 27.5 Dollars Currency Conversion Fee and ATM fee 300/Transaction) so you will end up paying around 84, for wire transfer you will pay (30 + 15 + 20 ) 65 USD – Of course if you are receiving more money than this cost gets lower – I use them because it gives you a US bank account number and your client can ACH like a local bank in USA :)

    • Abid Ali

      They charge 1% on Receiving payments from companies. Only 3% if you request payments from individuals. These rates are way better than any other platform.

      And Rs.20K limit is of Pakistan ATMs not of Payoneer. If Pakistani bank allow more than Rs.20K we could have saved a lot more in withdrawal fees.

      There is no ATM fee if you withdraw from Bank Alflah. Standard chartered and MCB charge fees. Though Payoneer charge $3.15 from every ATM withdrawal.

    • Mahfooz Ahmed

      how much are you charged for ACH?

      • Abid Ali

        1%

  • phyxan

    Contact me if anyone want to exchange payoneer credit with PKR. Thank !

    • Waqas

      how can I contact you

  • Aman Sarwar

    First of all Payoneer doesn’t support USD account in Pakistan. Currency goes straight into your PKR account. There is a 2% fee attached with every transaction through bank wire. I’m not sure about 3.5% currency conversion charges which is mostly compulsory in cross border money transactions. But Payoneer support write me back with more details and no currency conversion charges discussed. See Attached Image.

  • Shahzaib Rehman

    When the comment section is way more informative than the actual article :)

  • Umar Farooq

    I never had a Pakistani bank account and will never have in future! :P I use ATM always for Payoneer Withdrawals.

  • Adnan

    I tried this feature a year ago and I got very low dollar rate + conversion charges. I think ATM would be better.

  • Pinky

    Freelancer should use Transferwise now. Check them https://transferwise.com/u/569b9d
    I used them 2 time till now. They gave me exchange rate of 104.7. On Payment of 1000 dollor they only deducted approx. 9.90$ in total and money came straign to bank as “Home Remittence” in pak rupees. First transfer took one day. Next transfer was instant and in my account within few hours.
    If you have long term clients then get payment through this. Really easy and neat.

  • Adeel Ahmad

  • Zain Rafi

    PayPal is best. Cheap and Fast. I am using it for more then 2 years. I even get working capital of 3000Gbp

    • Abid Ali

      What you’re trying to say bro?

      We are talking about Payoneer and it withdrawal to banks in Pakistan. You’re commenting as if you’re withdrawing from PayPal to Pakistani banks.

      • Zain Rafi

        I am sorry. I think my comment was not appropriate here. Reading about the problem people face with Payooner. I was trying to say get PayPal if you can as it a lot better then any other solution

        • Sohail Mirza

          How can you withdraw PayPal to Pakistani Bank? You can’t I’m sure.

          • Zain Rafi

            Well in my particular case I have a buddy in Uk & Usa who do that for me. But there is a work around. Zoom by PayPal let you directly deposit money to Pakistan bank account in mins

            • Sohail Mirza

              And you can withdraw to Xoom from Paypal? So Paypal to Xoom and then Local Bank Possible?

  • DSO T.T.Singh

    Kya Bank of Punjab ka koi bi account add kia ja skta hy Payoneer mn?

        Thanks brother

  • Naveed

    Can I deposit money in payoneer card via my local bank as well ?

    • Sohail Mirza

      You can deposit by international credit card using a feature “Request a Payment”

      • Naveed

        oh I wanted to use that card on google play store.. agar credit card hota tu directly wohi use kr layta lol

  • Ozair Akhtar (Oxair Online)

    It’s really amazing to see that Payoneer now allows people in Pakistan to withdraw their funds from the Payoneer account directly to their banks. I would like to know are they giving the exact rates of $1 = Rs.107 other than the fees of 3.5%.

    • Abid Ali

      Kahan se milta hai Rs 107?

      Maine withdraw kiye hain $203. 4 Din tak pata chal jayega k kitnay miltay hain.

      • Ozair Akhtar (Oxair Online)

        Good Bro. I am saying current dollar rates are $1 = 104.53 Pakistani Rupee so is hisab se ana chahiye…

  • Masna Bin Umeed

    Actually this isnt any new feature
    I’ve been using it on freelancer.com for a couple of years.
    Its actually slower and costs more, so not recommended

  • DSO T.T.Singh

    Which bank offers lowest withdrawal fee with payoneer bank transfer?

  • Mahmed

    Read about Payoneer and its shareholders:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payoneer

  • Muhammad Moosa

    Never received Payoneer car,d registered for it months ago.. Guess they are real busy

  • Falcon

    Can I use transferwise with Payoneer card? For example, I pay from my Payoneer card for the transfer online to save fees and conversion charges?

  • Waqar

    Best of luck with the payment then man, I made a small withdrawl of about 280 USD a year from now and they made me wait for more than 2 months, I kept calling payoneer and they said the funds are already sent, I called the bank and they kept saying we don’t know!
    When it did come after I used some friends at HBL who checked, the Bank wala kept calling and making rude arguments on who sent the money and why, that IDIOT made it fucking miserable for me to freelance.
    In my opinion the card is best, yes it cuts alot especially when you need to make a transaction more than 20,000 Pkr but the bank transfer is just not worth it….!
    Please keep me posted when you hear from this.

    • Abid Ali

      What you’re trying to say is a year ago. Situation is different as of now. It is way better than ATM withdrawals. It barely takes 3 business days.

  • Fahad Hasan

    I want to inform all that HBL has started to mark Payoneer Money transfer as local funds transfer and therefore they are now deducting service charges. Their new criminal method work like this
    Your payoneer amount will arrive in HBL Foreign exchange karachi they will create a check and deposit it in your account now this transaction will be taken as LFFT intercity transfer (in case you are living outside karachi)
