Hi Nissim_Payoneer,

I have a simple question about payoneer’s bank transfer service. For example If I have 1000 US$ in Envato account, and I want to transfer it to my bank account in Latvia in Euros.

If I understood correctly, there will be 2 different types of charges.

1. Payoneer fees for bank transfer. How much it will be to transfer $1000 ? Will the bank also charge fees to receive the money? How much it will be?

2. You said payoneer uses official master card exchange rates + 2% conversion charge for Euros. According to Master card exchange, 1000 USD = 773.335 EUR . So how much will be the conversion charge on it?

Thanks.

Hi Nissim_Payoneer,

For Latvia, we support local transfers.

You can choose to get paid via local bank transfer, in either EUR or LVL . Funds will be sent to you from a local bank in your country, so you should not be charged any international transfer fees by your bank.

The cost per payment is $2.99, and then we convert the funds. We use the official market mid-rate at the time of transfer, which is generally the best rate available. We then apply a conversion charge of 2% (if you choose Euro) and up to 3% (if you choose LVL ). When you sign up for the service, it asks you which currency you’d like to get paid in.

So to be clear, there are 2 charges for getting paid in EUR /LVL:

1) $2.99 for the payment 2) 2% for the conversion (for EUR ); or 3% for the conversion (for LVL )

Edit: A great tool is http://www.xe.com/, as they use the mid-market rates: http://www.xe.com/faq/rates_buyorsellrates.php

Nissim_Payoneer,

Thanks for such a wonderful support.

1. About the payment charges, $2.99, is it constant? Or will it increase if i transfer more than $1000?

2. About the conversation fees, if I transfer $2000 to LVL , would it be $60 (ie. 2000 * 0.03) ?

Thanks.

Happy to help :)

Indeed, the payment fee is constant. It’s $2.99 for local transfers to Latvia, regardless of the payment amount.

You’re correct in the calculation of the conversion charge; it would be up to 3% of the payment amount for converting to LVL (it may be slightly less, but will never exceed 3%). EUR would be only 2%, however we find that it is beneficial for some members to be able to transfer to their local currency directly.

I’ve been using Paypal for almost seven years now, and I’ve never had a problem with it(thousands of dollars have been sent and received so I’m by no means a casual spender).
