Until now, One Hour Translation paid the $1 fee for each payment made to a translator on the standard payment dates, so the translator did not need to pay that fee.
Paying $20 per translator for each payment is obviously not economically viable.
Currently translators have the following alternatives:
- Use Paypal – Translators who would like to continue getting paid via Paypal will need to pay at least part of this new fee. We are trying to see how we can minimize that.
- Use One Hour Translation's Prepaid Debit MasterCard – We managed to get a special promotion from Payoneer for our translators – The activation fee for new prepaid debit MasterCard is waived.
- Use Payoneer direct bank wire transfer – available to holders of the One Hour Translation Prepaid Debit MasterCard.
Thanks to the current promotion getting the prepaid One Hour Translation debit MasterCard is totally free of charge. We therefore highly recommend all translators order it, even if you are not planning to use it right now.
For those of you who don't not know, the One Hour Translation Prepaid Debit MasterCard® card, powered by Payoneer has several advantages. You get paid directly to your card, which can be used in any store and any ATM that accepts MasterCard to withdraw cash in your local currency. It can also be used for online payments of course.
