Western Union As A Payment Method


#1

Is there any chance of Western Union being implement as a payment alternative? The demand is clearly there and as Paksiatni seller we don’t have access to Paypal. Payoneer, on the other hand, is pretty damn bad.

Is there any way this could happen? This would really help sellers in which Paypal isn’t available.

Been using Payoneer for 18 months, had one issue with a payment not coming through.
Contacted support and they asked me to wait 5 days “to be sure”. After that, they sorted it out within 48 hours.

Aside from that, I have not had any issues and the $50 sign-up bonus they gave me initially has covered the $3 per withdrawal fee for me up until last month. All in all, has been great - I guess people like me don’t go to SiteJabber to rant about how good the experience has been…


#3

Yeah, but then there are people like me that can’t be bothered to leave a review even after hating them with every fiber of my being.
Worst support ever!


#4

Having Western Union as a method for receiving funds would definately be very welcome! I’m happy with Payoneer, but being able to pick up the money cash at Western Union would be great!


#5

Exactly my point! The whole thing would be a lot faster, safer and stress-free for everyone involved.


#6

And for people living in a more cash-based economy this would make things a lot easier!


#7

Western Union would be a great alternative but I love Payoneer. I’ve been using it for 2 years. Is there any specific reason that caused you hate it that much? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#8

Yeah, it’s been Five Days and I still haven’t gotten a response from support. This is not the first time this has happened.
Simply sending fund through western union would be soooooooo much easier. How has Fiverr not done this yet is beyond me.

In my experience, Payoneer’s support is excellent and they refrain from those nasty tendencies to freeze other people’s money and earn interest on it without giving any valid explanations besides, “because we can.”

(Don’t get me wrong - never happened to me as I’ve never used them but dozens of my friends suffered from very shady practices on the side of PayPal).

I’ve had nothing but pleasant experiences with Payoneer in the past 4 years I’ve been using them. Prompt Customer Support, always available Live Chat, excellent, friendly guys that quickly provide solutions, hell - they’ve even let me go into the - $45 balance when I was initially signing up in order to get the Card shipped expressly with DHL (with the only proof they’ve asked for being the screenshot of my Fiverr Earnings).

I’ve had nothing but extremely good experiences both with the Company and the CS and I must say I love them with “every fiber of my being”.

Oh - and not to forget. They do pay their promised referral commissions. On time, every time.

They’re 5/5 in my book!
