What Payoneer does well

Sign up process - Fairly straightforward although completing the US tax form can be time consuming.

Payment options -  Bank account transfers, debit card, credit cards and Payoneer balances.

Where Payoneer could improve

Transfer speed - Up to 3 business days upon payment.

Phone transfers - Transfers can not be completed over the phone.

USA tax compliance form assistance - Completing the form as a non-US resident can be confusing. It would be of great help to provide more assistance for non-nationals to complete these forms.

The Result

Winner ribbon iconWinner

 Payoneer

This is not much of a contest with Payoneer easily taking out all categories against Stripe.  With both not offering services for individuals, the gap in business services is quite dramatically in favour of Payoneer.  The only other category that was marginally close was Ease of Use making Payoneer the clear overall winner.
