This post is as much for me and other South Africans, as it is for anyone else. I have a Paypal account and would prefer to keep my international income separate from my local income.
Unfortunately, it seems that being able to open an account with at least a debit card, never mind a credit card is extremely difficult for anyone not living in Europe, including the UK and the USA as well as Canada.
I have therefore opened a Payoneer account. Their support sucks quite frankly, but at least there is a method whereby I can transfer money from Paypal to Payoneer. I will also be able, or so I am told, to use their debit card anywhere and that their overall costs are quite low.
I would appreciate any comments re pros and cons as well as other possible suggestions. I can probably even answer a few questions if need be.
