How much time they take to send commission? Tell me about you, cuz you are a Pakistani, Are you receiving your commission on 20th of the month through payoneer?

When your commission reaches $50 or above they issue your payments to Payoneer. From Payoneer you can withdraw to your local bank account. Sometimes it takes few hours and sometimes it takes 2 to 3 days to reach your local bank account.
