My Payoneer Card has Arrived

Yay! Finally I got my hands on the shipped Payoneer Card I've been requested. Well, it's been on my bed for the whole previouse week, actually. But what can I say, my last assignment took me out of town for some time. But now, I'm having the card well-kept in my wallet, for it's another step for me to start my internet income activities.

I signed up for Payoneer since I'm in need to validate my PayPal account. Yes, I registered myself for a PayPal account in order to have a good paying solution that can handle my online transactions. Why do I need one? Because the earnings, of course. It's been a while since I started to receive my payments you know.
And what does a Payoneer Card has to do with PayPal? Well, there's a story for that. And I'll share it with you

You see, you can have your PayPal account as easy as fillin' in the registration form. After the registration, you'll get your account (activated through email) and then voila.. an account is available to handle your payments. But what happens after you have the funds deposited on your PayPal account?

Here's the difference:
If you're still an unverified user, which means you haven't add any Credit Card or Debit Card details, you can not withdraw your fund to your local bank account. But still, you can use it to transfer the fund to others. But the story would be different if you're an verified user.. please conclude yourself the advantages. For me, I don't have the qualification for any Credit Card application, because being a freelance did produce some limitations at that department. But since PayPal also accept Debit Card info for the verification process, then I signed up for a Payoneer Card.

But the sign-up process itself, was quite tricky. Because Payoneer don't accept direct application, I have to sign myself on one of their affiliate merchant (or something like that). And from so many of their kind, I chose ReviewMe instead. This was done not without any thoughts. I chose a paid-review program since I intend to take a part in one of those money-making program.

The Payoneer Card application is provided on the ReviewMe registration form. On the section where I supposed to mention what Payment Method should I use. There was the check box for "Payoneer Debit Card" so I checked it, which then brought me to another registration form (belongs to Payoneer).. So I fill the required fields as instructed.

It didn't take a week, when I received the notification notice from Payoneer that my application had been approved. The only "lame" thing to faced was that they informed me, the shipping process might last for 30-days. Man, that was long waiting.

But since I was quite occupied back then, I never realize how fast time could fly. And now, here I am with my Payoneer Card. Activated, and ready to loaded!

I'm just one step away from getting my PayPal account verified.
