Payoneer
Chose Payoneer
Payoneer has outperformed them all, with speedier payments, a larger network, and international business accounts. We first tried a few different payment service providers before settling on this one, like PayPal, Payeer, and Skrill. But after all these years, Payoneer …
Chose Payoneer
I chose Payoneer over the competition because of the low transaction fees and the ease of receiving money from customers anywhere in the world, and then being able to withdraw it without using intermediaries, directly to my bank account and into my local currency.
Chose Payoneer
Through Payoneer's payment solution, it is easy to send funds to numerous countries across the globe. Payoneer will help pay people from more than 85 countries around the world. One of the things I love about Payoneer is the simplicity that they offer.
Chose Payoneer
PayPal is accepted by country but I can only send out funds, no receiving. With Payoneer you can send and receive funds, it also has a free credit card that can be delivered to your door step.
Skrill
Chose Skrill
Skrill has advantages over the others, such as quicker payments, superior customer service, and lower payment transfer fees. Before using this one, we tested PayPal, Payoneer, and TransferWise, among other payment service providers. However, after around three years of use, …

Payoneer
Payoneer is well suited for freelancers whether or not they work on marketplaces. as it makes it easier to receive payments from clients abroad. More over it also takes a lot of hassle out of getting paid from international clients as well as sending cross border payments. It has some what limited implementation in e commerce type business especially where you need to automate the payment process

Skrill is my preferred way of doing money transactions abroad typically when I need a safe secured and efficient way of sending money overseas and the amount is low. Most other portals tend to charge a transfer fee for lower amounts but Skrill does not charge a transaction fee when I use the ACH Transfer even for lower amounts. For personal use, I have used the debit card to fuel transactions and it allows you the same facility as the debit card. If I need to complete the transaction within a day and want the money to be available in the receiving account overseas the same day, I prefer another portal that has the option of express service that Skrill does not offer.

We ended up using Tipalti which seems to have solved our specific needs better, though it is more expensive.

Support Rating
Payoneer
The support is really awful. They send you generic answers, and actually don't really understand what is going on. For example, when our re-verification was stuck, support agents told me that the account is active and you can send a payment. I did that, my card was charged, but the payment was declined, because the account was not active

Before Payoneer, I used Paxum, a Canadian product, that was or is similar but more expensive. Also used Payza(later Ecopayz), and European alternative, they have their ups and downs, they aren't even listed in the Search above, basically they are both payment gateways that allow using several payment methods, and any payment gateway, the problem is they don't have any bank accounts associated with them, therefore they are more limited in that regard. Both use a card as the main withdrawal method, and both support international currencies, but there as I mentioned there isn't any bank account associated with them, nor there is a way to connect them to Stripe.
