Current issues...

I'm with Payoneer and I've been very happy with their service so far.

The only thing I'm stuck with is using my UK payoneer account with my UK amazon affiliates account.

The UK affiliates account requires the account/bank details in a certain format, which payoneer doesn't seem to provide. (An IBAN, for one.)  Searched all over the web for this, with no luck. Lots of people giving up, not much else.

I can provide more details if this is something they can look into.

ETA: the other thing I can't find out is what the charges per transaction are like, if I apply for one of their debit cards and use it here in Australia for small purchases.

Also yWriter, free novel-writing software for Windows PCs. (Mac version in progress).
SalesScanner, free KDP/Google Play/Kobo/Smashwords report analyser & aggregator.

Send me the UK issue and I'll pass it on. In theory, Amazon UK should be able to pay you in pounds, into payoneer.

From memory, the IBAN was tricky to find, but its usually a head office. But lets ask and see what comes back.

There should not be a fee for using the card. Just the conversion from A$ into US$.

But ask that question too, and I'll send both on.
Genres: Space Opera/Fantasy/Cyberpunk, with elements of LitRPG and GameLit. Also Spiritual and Games.

I have not had a good experience with Payoneer. Setup was not smooth, and after using the service for a year the service prevented me from paying one of my regular service providers in Europe. I've gone back to PayPal - not willingly, but because it's my only option.
