I applied for mine last year November (06/11/15) and it was delivered to my house here in Benue, Nigeria yesterday (10/02/16) even though I received a mail from them that it will be delivered between 24 Nov 2015 and 01 Dec 2015 .
So, it took three months for the Payoneer card to get to my Nigeria address from USA. Maybe because I used a Benue address and not Lagos address though…
