Registration of a Payeer wallet

At the second step, Payeer automatically generates a "Secret code" and "Account name," but you can change them to your own.

In the future, you will log in using the "Account name," so it's important not to lose this information.

Let's first look at how to top up fiat currencies.

How to use Payeer

How to deposit Payeer from a bank card?

To top up your wallet, go to the "Add" section.

Select the currency you want to top up.

Depending on the selected currency, different top-up methods will be available to you.

How to deposit Payeer through exchangers?

If you need more options to top up or withdraw money from Payeer, you can use exchangers.

To find safe exchangers with reasonable rates, I use the aggregator Bestchange.

How to use the aggregator?

  1. Choose what you will be giving: money from a bank card, payment system, or cryptocurrency.
  2. Choose what you want to receive: in our case, Payeer.
  3. You get a table of exchangers: choose by suitable rate and positive reviews.

Then you go to the exchanger's website.

  1. Specify the exchange amount.
  2. The wallet or card from which you will be sending money.
  3. The details where the funds should be credited.

They give you the details where you need to send the money.

You send it, and within 30 minutes the money is credited to Payeer.

This method can be used to deposit or withdraw money not only to banks but also to other payment systems, which would not be possible otherwise: PayPal, YooMoney, Webmoney.

How to deposit Payeer with cryptocurrencies?

It's quite simple.

  1. Choose the required cryptocurrency.
  2. Copy the address number.
  3. Send the money to the specified address.

How to withdraw money from Payeer?

The withdrawal works on a similar scheme.

  2. Chose an exchanger: based on positive reviews and the minimum withdrawal amount.

Accepting payments on your website through Payeer

Payeer can be connected to accept payments on your website.

Customers will be able to use bank cards or cryptocurrencies. After payment, the money is transferred to the seller's Payeer account, after which it can be withdrawn in the standard way.

There is a set of ready-made integrations for different CMS.

For accepting crypto payments, you can also use a solution from Binance.

I have a separate article about accepting credit card payments on a website.
