oDesk is pleased to announce a new way for providers to receive their earnings: the oDesk Debit MasterCard, powered by Payoneer, is now available for pre-order.

oDesk Debit MasterCard, powered by Payoneer

The oDesk Debit MasterCard is a prepaid debit MasterCard. A provider’s earnings are loaded directly onto the card, which can then be used to withdraw cash at any MasterCard ATM worldwide as well as make purchases anywhere MasterCard is accepted, in stores or online. We believe it will be the best way to receive funds for most non-US providers, with low fees, the best exchange rates in the world, fast transfer and the convenience of a MasterCard.

We will be shipping cards around the second week of May, and will waive the activation fee for providers who pre-order their cards before then. To pre-order your card, providers should log into oDesk and go to the new My Money tab.

The oDesk Debit MasterCard is available for providers in all oDesk countries, and will replace iKobo for providers in Ukraine.

For more information on the oDesk Debit MasterCard, visit the oDesk Guide to Payoneer or discuss the new card here.

    I am not ablet to withdraw cash from my Odesk Payoneer card. I tried several ATMs in Nashik (India), but I couldn’t get any cash from any of the ATMs. One ATM showed my balance as Rs. 28.60 instead of $28.60 after presseing “withdraw money” button. I tried to seek help from payoneer but they can’t help and just keeps on saying that “it should work worldwide”. Pl help if anyone has withdrawn money from India.
