We’ve implemented a new integration with Payoneer which allows you to pay team members or to request money from clients.
We use Payoneer internally to pay a large number of our contractors for a few reasons:
Each employee needs to first activate their account with Payoneer. They can do that by going to settings and then Payoneer settings and then activate the Payoneer integration.
Employers can also go to “Send Payment” and then they can request their contractor to activate their Payoneer account. Once the contractor’s payoneer account is set up and activated the employer can send payments at any time with this “Send Payment” link.
This is a great option if you are located in a country where you can not easily bill clients. For example let’s say you are located in India and have a client in the US. Time Doctor allows you to prove work done by providing screenshots of the work for that client. You provide a login for your client using the client feature (activate this under settings then clients in the menu). Your client can log in and see screenshots of work done. You can even white label this login so that they log into YOUR website to see the screenshots. So they don’t need to know it’s Time Doctor that you are using. For example, let’s say you provide a web development service in India: xyzwebdevelopment.com is your website. You can set it up so that your clients log into your website at xyzwebdevelopment.com and your clients will see screenshots of the work done for yourself or any contractors working in your company.
Then when it comes time to charge your client you go to “Payments” in the Time Doctor menu then “Request Payment from client”. Your client will get an email with a link to pay you for the work done, using Payoneer.
This is true globalization! Previously it was difficult for contractors around the world to charge their clients in the US or Australia or wherever their clients are located. Now contractors can provide proof of work done and charge their clients using Time Doctor and the Payoneer integration.
