Does anyone know which is best for getting paid into a gbp bank account, payoneer or paypal? I can't seem to track down exactly how much they take on top of market exchange rates  and a lot of the fees for payoneer seem to relate to a credit card that I am not interested in.
I just want to know which is cheaper for getting my ss payments.

Even I am thinking the same, I have never signed up with payoneer but it seems to be very popular option.
Is it worth opting? Anyone using payoneer here?

I compared Payoneer and Paypal fees (maily exchange rate) and they are similar. Payoneer might be slightly better (not much really), but is seems to be more hassle to deal with.

Shutterstock would do a huge step if they could send money via wire transfer. We don't need any more middlemen!

I believe there is some fixed amount of bank charges taken in every transaction irrespective of the amount you are receiving.
Paypal offers mass payment option for companies which is very good. For me Paypal is working good, dunno if I should try payoneer or not.

A fixed amount of bank charges per transaction would be OK (when transfering higher transfers), but the real problem with Payoneer is that they also charge the exchange rate similar to Paypal.

Finally, no more Agency-Skrill (-5.50euro on every withdraw to Payoneer)-Payoneer, for Shutterstock at least.

I swapped from Skrill to Payoneer when Skrill killed card for my country (Serbia). Now i have $ and euro Payoneer cards with no need for cash withdraw, i just use the cards.
never until now made withdrawal, but i think it is around 2-4 euro no matter how much you take (ATM).

For me it is great and i highly recommend it.

Skrill is the best option anyway. I dont understand why so many people stick with PayPal anyway.

Could you explain why ?

Skrill will be my last choice always, pathetic service with too many charges.
Payoneer is good for those countries who do not have paypal in operation.

I think currently I will stick with paypal

Biggest difference between Paypal and Payoneer for me:
a) Prepayed Mastercard connected to Payoneer account - If I remember Paypal have something similar but for US citizens only
    You could use your card on any ATM but If you are using Mastercard for buying products, services and paying bills you can minimize withdrawal fees.
b) Virtual US bank account so US clients could pay directly to your US bank account number which is also important to me because microstock is just a part of my photo/video business.

This is not marketing, just my IT expirience:
Payoneer has very good API which could be integrated easy and fast with almost any internet platform.
That is probably the main reason why SS tested it only one month.
Contributors with IT background who will accept Payoneer will have a little sense how integration works during registration of a new payment method.
Payoneer module is simply embedded into SS software and when you select Payoneer as an option you got Payoneer interface inside SS configuration page which will create link to your existing Payoneer account. Easy, simple and secure from my point of view. There is possibility to create new account directly even if you don't have one but I prefer to create and configure Payoneer account first and then link to an existing account from SS configuration page.

Payoneer charges $1 for bank transfers, Paypal doesn't ... and Paypal has a debit card ... Payoneer Doesn't
Edit:I wasn't aware that they had a card ... still, they charge a buck for transfers ... :(

Thanks for that. Seems like the slice they take for exchange rates is pretty similar so no point me switching.

Exactly the point. For me, they might even charge $25 for a bank transfer, but get rid of exchange rates.
The main fee is hidden in the exchange rate., which as you said, is similar to Paypal's.

It is still unclear for me but what I see on their page is that you have to pay an annual fee for that card, $29.95 (~$2.5/month) .
Europeans need a card in for FT (if FT accepts Payoneer) and another in $ for the rest, that would be $5/month just for the card.
There are more fees for ATM withdraw........and "up to 3.5% currency conversion".

Here are all fees for those interested https://www.payoneer.com/fees/
and a screenshot for the card.
I know PP has many hidden fees but this doesn't seam cheap to me either. Did I miss something?

I believe the big issue, which doesn't effect most of us, is the people in countries where PP doesn't operate. Nice that SS can adjust and add this option for those people. I won't change, I'm happy, but some were getting big exchange fees and expenses, just to get their hard earned money. Some had no way to get paid except checks or other slow costly methods.

The PP API works fine on my websites also the code for instant purchases for goods also works just fine, it's free. I don't mind paying a small fee which is the same as Credit Card processing, to get people to order on my website. I get paid, they get the goods, we're all happy.

Exactly opposite. Payoneer has it and If I remember well Paypal has a debit card for US Citizens only, so it doesn't exists for major number of contributors.

Yes, I edited it. You could have read that on the screen.
I have a paypal MasterCard ... Jump the pond. bahahahaha. Seriously though, don't jump the pond. It's a mess over here. I actually don't even use the PayPal debit card as I just withdraw Paypal funds the same time I withdraw other funds ... They haven't been charging me anything, and Payoneer's is a buck. Which isn't much really, except for when you need $50, and only have $50 :/
