Slovakia - withdrawal method


I am new at ODESK, and I would like to ask for some advice regarding the best withdrawal method for me - I am from Slovakia. I was thinking about Paypal withdrawal method, because their fee is just 1 dollar per withdrawal, but I heard that they also charge some additional fees and their exchange rate is bad, so I am confused now. The other option for me is new withdrawal method introduced by ODESK which charges 1.99 dollar per withdrawal, but I do not know whether there are some additional fees too, or its just that 1.99 fee.

Thank you all in advance for your answers,

i'm from Romania, and i have

i'm from Romania, and i have a mastercard debit card issued by payoneer.
im charged $2 per withdrawal from odesk to the bank, and i have to wait about week (6 days on odesk for the payment to clear) and then some 2 days for the money to get on the card.
if i want the money directly on the card on the spot (after the 6 days), i get charged another $2.5
there is a monhtly admin fee charged to the bank (up to $3) but no fee if there is no money on the card. if you use elance, too, even etter as you can use the same card on both sites.
paypal seems cheaper, you need a visa card for it.

i hope this helps

As mentioned above, Payoneer

I'd be more than happy to answer any questions about Payoner, so feel free to ask Smile
