What if my Payoneer card is lost or stolen?

If you’ve misplaced your Payoneer card or worse, it’s been stolen, it’s only natural that you’ll want to cancel it right away. Otherwise, there’s the risk of fraud on your account, which could leave you out of pocket.

If your card has been lost or stolen, it’s important to act fast. Payoneer advises that you should call them immediately on 1-(646)-386-2434³ so that they can block your card before any fraudulent transactions can take place.

You can also report your card lost or stolen via the Payoneer app. This could be the quickest and easiest way to do it, plus you can order new cards through the app should you need to.

Are there fees to cancel a Payoneer card?

Payoneer doesn’t charge any fees to cancel cards.

However, there is an annual card fee of $29.95⁴ (approx. £26.50) for active Payoneer Mastercards. It may be the case that you can’t get a full or even partial refund for this fee if you cancel your card part-way through the year. You’ll need to check with Payoneer.

If you haven’t activated or used the card though, the annual fee won’t be charged⁵.
