Setting Up Payment Details

Bugcrowd supports the following online payment systems:

  • PayPal
  • Payoneer

It's important that you add at least one of these payment methods to your account. However, we recommend you signup for both Payoneer and PayPal as some programs on Bugcrowd will only payout researchers through one of these two providers.
