Having encountered some challenges with Sri Lankan banks when depositing CJ.com checks, I’ve opted to streamline my earnings by opening a Payoneer account for direct bank transfers. I’d like to share my initial experience using Payoneer in Sri Lanka, especially for those new to the platform and freelancing in the country.
Due to complications with Sri Lankan banks, such as Sampath Bank rejecting my last two checks and BOC imposing a 30% service fee on the total amount, I sought a more efficient solution.
I initiated the process by opening my Payoneer account on March 8, 2017, and received approval within a day. The registration involved a straightforward confirmation (ID) step to ensure eligibility for receiving payments from Payoneer to Sri Lanka. As per their requirements, I submitted a scanned copy of my government-issued driving license as the final step.
To facilitate seamless transactions, I furnished CJ.com with the US bank account details provided in the “Global Payment Service” section of my Payoneer account, akin to possessing a bank account in the USA. This shift to Payoneer has proven to be a more reliable and convenient method for managing my freelance earnings in Sri Lanka.
On 20th March CJ.com has made the direct deposit to my Payoneer Account (First Century Bank in the US).
Within one day the amount was reflected in my Payoneer Account.
Payoneer charges for receiving a payment is: 1 % (Load Fee)
Then I requested a payment of 134US$ (withdraw) from Payoneer to Sampath Bank.
Within few minutes the amount was reflected in my Sampath Bank Account ( Sampath Vishwa Online ) as follows.
Surprisingly today (23rd March) I got another email from Payoneer that mentioning I have received another 25$ as a bonus from them.
