oDesk Payoneer Global banking transfer

Hi Everybody,

Odesk has payoneer card as withdrawal method. However, payoneer has another method associated with their system, that is Global banking transfer. I wanted to switch to GBT(Global banking transfer). At that time, I found that oDesk specifically didn't allow the GBT to its users. Payoneer told me that every partner except odesk can have GBT, but since oDesk doesn't want GBT, so they can't provide it to me.

oDesk support team told me that it is beyond them since it is decision of their management to not allow GBT. Why oDesk has issues with GBT.

I can think of only one reason - they don't want to forego 2% extra exchange rate they earn through Local Fund transfer method. Why don't they simply charge commission as 12% instead of 10% then?
