This is how it goes (at least in my case): Envato sends US Dollars > Skrill converts it to Serbian Dinars > bank converts it to Euros; Result – s** loads of money ‘disappears’.

To be more precise, set Skrill to US Dollar as default and use Dollar/Euro (devizni tekuci racun) account. That way no money gets lost on the account of conversion. Only fee I pay is Skrill’s, bank doesn’t take anything :)

Skrill: when they mark your account as merchant then they’ll apply much more higher fee
Yep! After they consider your account as a “business account”, they apply ~4.0% fee for non-European customers!

So, it’s not so sweet as they tell you when you open your account….

Thanks for considering Payoneer.

For anyone looking to withdraw funds from Envato services to their bank account, our Global Bank Transfer Service is an excellent solution.

We support transfers to more than 200 countries, in over 50 currencies. We are fully localized in over 80 countries, which means that we’ll actually send your funds from a local bank in your country, in your local currency. The cost per transfer is only $2.99 per local currency transfer, and $15 per USD SWIFT.

Envato pays you in USD, and we convert funds to your local currency, so there is only 1 conversion. We use rates of up to 3% above the official mid-market rate, and only 2% for 6 major currencies (EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD, PHP, and RON).

You can read a bit more about it, and also see what the sign up process looks like, here: http://blog.payoneer.com/lower-fees-for-payoneers-global-bank-transfer-gbt-service/

I’m also using PayPal since 2010 and never had issues with them.

I also wanted to open a bank account in dollars and then transfer the Envato earnings directly to that bank account, but I heard that the fee in this case is 50$, so I think this is the choice when you earn a high amount monthly ….for me PayPal remains the best option.

After seeing this thread I decided to check my skrill account to see if i faced such stuff. It turns out I did!
I received money yesterday and I found out that skrill took $5 for them. I checked all my records and this wasn’t the case before. This year I had about 15 people transferring money for me. Only the last one saw this unusual fee stated!
Also I checked my withdrawals to the bank $60 were missing!

Unfortunately paypal isn’t an option for me. I also know that paypal has also trust issues!
