Payment Methods



US Bank Transfer



You can receive USD to any bank account in the US that accepts ACH payments. We will need your name or company name, full address, bank account number, routing number (ABA or ACH), and account type (checking or savings). Account numbers are between 4–7 digits long.  Routing numbers are 9 digits long. Find your routing number.

UK Bank Transfer



You can receive GBP to any bank account in the UK that accepts Faster Payments. We will need your name or company name, 6-digit sort code and 8-digit bank account number.

EU Bank Transfer



We can send to any SEPA country. We can also send EUR to countries outside of the SEPA zone, but this will incur International wire transfer costs. We will need to know your name or company name, and bank account number. In Europe, this is a code called an IBAN, and is between 14 and 34 digits long. Use this IBAN checker to make sure the IBAN you have is in the right format.

International Wire Transfer



We can send payments to many countries around the world. We will need to know your name or company name, bank account number and SWIFT or BIC code. 

Payoneer



Payoneer works all over the world in 200+ countries. It is free to get set up and has the benefit of being suitable for countries outside of the US and Europe. You can even get MasterCard payments, so any payouts get loaded onto your Payoneer MasterCard.

PayPal



PayPal is a well known and trusted payment platform. It is expensive to use (they charge between 1.9% to 6%) as they have hidden transaction fees. It is free to sign up and you just need an e-mail address.

[OutVoice](http://help.twine.net/en/articles/6118011-receiving-payment-with-outvoice) Recommended for micro-projects

Twine has teamed up with OutVoice for micro-payments!

This way we ensure our community can participate in task-based micro-projects without getting hit with costly transaction fees associated with other pay-out methods.

There will be a 3% transaction fee applied to any pay-outs issued via OutVoice.
