A. What is Payoneer?
Payoneer is a payment platform that we use in order to pay our drivers (mainly for destinations outside of Europe that have high banking fees).
B. Why do we use Payoneer?
Payoneer actually works as a local bank in the country where the driver is located. So for this reason, the driver payment is considered as a bank to bank transaction inside that same country and not as an international transaction.
We use this in order to avoid the high banking fees that some countries charge for international bank transactions.
C. In which cities do we currently use Payoneer for the driver payments?
Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa
Tel Aviv, Israel
London and Edinburgh, United Kingdom
