Tarjeta Payoneer by Frederico Picone

In case you didn’t know, you have the ability to set up and use a Payoneer account for withdrawals on our marketplaces. Also, Payoneer has recently added more countries where you can pay direct to your local bank. Here’s some info on how it works and how you can use it get at your cash!

What is Payoneer?

Payoneer at its core is a online payment system. It allows you another way to get your hard earned cash from our marketplaces into your hands. In addition, Payoneer can be used as an international payment distribution solution that can pay directly to an Envato Prepaid MasterCard®.

Here are some features of the Envato Prepaid MasterCard®:

  • Use your card anywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted worldwide or online.
  • Get cash at ATM 's worldwide.
  • Online access to your card account allows you to easily check your balance and transaction history.

In addition to the Prepaid MasterCard® cards, Payoneer is now offering Local Bank Transfers.

The Payoneer Local Bank Transfer Service allows you to receive payments directly to your local bank accounts in your local currencies at a very competitive fee.

Envato has setup a Local Bank Transfer with Payoneer to reach to over 200 countries currently. These countries are now listed on the Local Bank Transfer drop down list on the Envato registration page.

The following PDF contains the full list of countries we currently serve through Payoneer as well as the transaction fees for each country:

How to set up a Payoneer account?

Visit your Marketplace withdrawal page, scroll down and select Envato Prepaid MasterCard® (Payoneer) and you'll be presented with link to signup with Payoneer.

Important Please ensure you follow this link via your withdrawal page when signing up as this links Payoneer to your Marketplace account.

Account holders can sign up for a Payoneer prepaid debit MasterCard OR Local Bank Transfers.

Already have a Payoneer Account?

If you already have a Payoneer account following the same process via the withdrawal page link and you can then link the accounts together (top right of the Payoneer/Envato landing page).

Benefits of Local Bank Transfers Service

There are several benefits for setting up a Local Bank Transfer:

  • Faster than wire transfers and checks
  • Funds are loaded directly to your local bank account in your local currency
  • Cheaper than wires
  • No maintenance fees

Minimum Transfer Amounts

The minimum transfer amount is $50. Any smaller payments will be aggregated and once the total reaches the threshold of $50, the funds will be transferred to your bank account.


Beat the Upload Blues by Using FTP

Posted: 08 Sep 2011 02:55 AM PDT

Uploading huge files via a web form can be an exercise in frustration. Uploading to our marketplaces is no exception. So almost a year ago we added the ability to upload via FTP.

Have you given it a go? In this video from the Envato Wiki, VideoHive reviewer Brian Foote shows you how to do it. Prefer written instructions? Read on!

How To Do It

We recommend you use the free FileZilla ftp client, although any FTP client should work just fine.

Use your FTP client to connect to the ftp.marketplace.envato.com, and use your regular marketplace username and password to log in.

From there, start uploading your files. You can queue up several big files to upload, and go away and do something else while it's happening.

The screenshot below shows how to do this with FileZilla:

Once your files have finished uploading, go to the upload page on the marketplace. Your files will appear in the "Files" section of the page, and you can use them to submit your item as per usual.

That's all there is to it!

If you have any problems, contact support and let them know the operating system and FTP client you're using, and what went wrong.


Marketplace “Browse Categories” Pages Have Had a Facelift

Posted: 07 Sep 2011 10:35 PM PDT

Recently on the marketplace forums, our newest community ambassador Carmen announced the latest eye candy to hit our marketplaces: a much-improved Browse Categories page. It’s easier to visually scan, and easier to navigate, and now has an item count. To my eye it looks reminiscent of OS X’s Finder’s column view.

Take it to a test drive on your favorite marketplace by navigating to More / View All Categories on the top menu.

Feedback on the forums has been overwhelmingly positive. What do you think?
