Setting Up Payment Details

Bugcrowd supports the following online payment systems:

  • PayPal
  • Payoneer

Currently, Bugcrowd has two methods for payment, Payoneer and PayPal. Sign up with the payment method that is most convenient for you, or sign up for both and set one as your primary preferred method for receiving money.

Best Practice: Sign up for Both

We recommend you signup for both Payoneer and PayPal as some programs on Bugcrowd will only payout researchers through one of these two providers.

Once both forms of payment have been approved, an option to specify your preferrred method of payment will appear. Click on the drop-down arrow.
