If you’re not in the US, sending and receiving affiliates & advertising income can be a headache, especially if the only option is to get payment via check. Some issues like undelivered mail delay the payment process significantly. I’m sure you are aware of the problems associated with that.
PayPal is the first pick of many freelancers, digital marketers, bloggers, etc. But recently, Payoneer has appeared as an excellent alternative to PayPal.
Payoneer is a reliable service used by many leading marketing services. So far, I’ve received about $300 without any hassles. I’m using Payoneer to receive commissions also from Fiverr, Involve Asia & Awin affiliate programs.
I have written about Payoneer here. It’s a free online service that will let you receive payment from foreign countries.
This tutorial will show you how to configure your ShareASale on account to receive payment using the Payoneer service.
(Feel free to comment below if you have any questions.)
Get your USA bank routing number from Payoneer
Unlike PayPal, Payoneer gives unique ways to get payment from foreign marketplaces.
When you create a free Payoneer account, you’ll receive a USA bank routing number & EU bank routing number.
To get the a/c number, signup for Payoneer and submit your proof of identity. Then, wait for an email confirmation to get your account approved.
Once Payoneer, verifies your ID and approves your account, you can send or receive payments abroad.
Sign in to your account and select the Global Payments option to see the bank account number.
Now, choose the Bank location where the affiliate program can send payment without charging transfer fees.
In this case, I have used my USA payment service information & companies can send payment to my USA bank routing number (powered by Payoneer).
From there, Payoneer moves the money to my linked bank account in the Philippines within 24 hours. That’s it! Very simple process.
The service doesn’t have an option to transfer money manually, but it allows users to create payment requests. You can also see the transaction history with Payoneer on your dashboard..
Here is what you need to do:
- Create a free account on Payoneer
- Log in to your Payoneer dashboard and select “US Payment Service.”
- Jot down the bank name, account number, IBAN, BIC, Account Type, Routing number, etc. You need this fill out at the ShareASale payment page to start receiving your Affiliate commission.
- Now, open the payment settings page on ShareASale.
Update Payment information at ShareASale
Once you’ve logged in to your ShareASale.com account, navigate to the Payments > Payment Settings tab.
Update your payment and tax information. Under the “Advanced” window, select Payoneer option and enter your details.
If the Payoneer service is not available, it means ShareASale does not support payments in your specific country due to the availability of Direct Deposit ACH.
Refer to the below screenshot & fill out the bank details which you have received from Payoneer:
Some affiliate firms charge users 10 to 12 USD for transferring money to their bank account.
Payoneer charges only $3 for receiving the money.
That’s it! Once the bank deposits money to your bank a/c, all you have to do is wait for the “Money Transferred” message from Payoneer.
For many countries, including USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, & many others, ShareASale offers a direct bank deposit option. See the list of countries here.
For other countries like the Philippines, Pakistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, where direct bank deposit is unavailable, Payoneer works as an excellent way to receive payment without any issue. Claim your Payoneer Account for Free
