So one method of getting paid online is by linking your bank account to the company, allowing them to deposit the money directly into your bank account.

The second method, which is more popular, is using a financial service that will manage and secure the payments between you and all companies online. Again the 2 websites we will discuss here are and (these two services will help you get paid online). 

So let’s talk about 6 things to consider when choosing between PayPal and Payoneer.

1. Collecting payments on your website

If you want to buy a course from AidTheStudent academy, you will have to pay inside the website. While completing your purchase, you will see that you can pay with PayPal, so PayPal allows you to get paid directly inside your website. 

Note: Payoneer doesn’t have an option to get payments within a website like PayPal does.

2. Accepting payments from companies

If you go into Udemy, a company that allows you to create, buy and sell online courses, you will see that it can activate both PayPal or Payoneer to accept payments. If this feature interests you, then you won’t be missing out no matter which service you end up choosing.

3. Create a virtual bank account

If you didn’t know, Google Adsense is simply a service from Google that allows you to monetize your website with Ads and make money online. Read how to make money with Google AdSense here

If you go inside “Payments” on my Google Adsense dashboard, you will see that when managing your payments methods, it allows you to connect a bank account created by using Payoneer.

Payoneer allows you to create virtual bank accounts outside your country, you can then withdraw the money in them to the bank account in your country easily.

With PayPal, you can connect your bank account directly to get paind on the internet, but you can’t create new virtual bank accounts.

4. Create a Mastercard

Using PayPal or Payoneer, you can create Mastercards and withdraw money anywhere, worldwide.

5. Availability

Payoneer is available almost worldwide while PayPal is only available in a list of countries. So if you happen to live in a country where PayPal isn’t available, you might have no choice but to go with Payoneer if you want to get paid on the internet.

6. Policies

Payoneer has more strict policies, like not allowing the transfer of money for giveaways, while PayPal is less strict and does in fact allow transferring money for giveaways.
