Special Announcement: Payoneer is now free for designers

Payoneer, a leading payment platform for freelancers, has permanently removed the $3 load fee for DesignCrowd payouts received via Payoneer, regardless of payment size.

Effective immediately, DesignCrowd designers who choose to be paid through Payoneer will no longer pay the usual $3 fee each time DesignCrowd processes a payment.

We offer three payment methods (PayPal, Skrill and Payoneer) on our platform. Designers can use up to two different payment methods combinations to receive payments. Juggling two payout accounts gets complicated and now you can switch both payment methods to Payoneer and save more money on fees.

Special offer: $25 Sign Up Bonus from Payoneer.

If you’re still not convinced, Payoneer is offering a limited- time bonus to sweeten the deal further. Any designer that switch to Payoneer by October 6, 2017 and receives at least $100 in payments from DesignCrowd by December 6, 2017 will receive a US$25 bonus. More on this shortly!
