payment methods similar to paypal?

Profile picture of the author ruch1v by ruch1v Posted: 12/26/2009
hey guys, i'm looking for a payment method i can use sporadically, for example for the odd wso or limited offers within different niches. Paypal would be a pretty great option for this but I've had quite a few problems with them in the past so don't really want to go down that route


I'm basically looking for something that doesn't have a set up cost or on going fees, just something easy to use for the customers


any help would be really appreciated

thanks

    i used to use moneybookers about 18months ago when i used to import from China, the process was i'd have to transfer money from my bank account to moneybookers (took 2-3 days, its UK to UK so faster than any of the US guys transferring), then once it was in your account you could transfer it over.

    So as far as things like information products go where people are used to getting the download within minutes of paying, it wouldn't really work, but like it said, i was using it a year and a half ago so maybe things have changed?

    Paypal is really a good way for online payment but if you are really looking for other options then you can go for-

    moneybookrs
    google checkout
    Alertpay.

    Hi

    I am looking for a PayPal type system where it can be used
    as a Virtual Terminal... so I can take orders over the phone
    and put in credit card details of my client whilst on the phone
    and get paid...

    Can anyone offer help, please?

    Thanks

    Another recommendation for ProPay


    https://epay.propay.com/

    Can't believe Paypal hasn't bought them yet.

    Revolution Money Exchange is similar to paypal. I haven't used them in over a year but they are very similar from what I remember.

    Thanks for all your suggestions...

    I am looking for a virtual terminal I can use when a customer
    calls me on the phone and gives me his/her credit card details
    for processing there and then - i.e. whilst they are on the line
    I tap in the card details etc.

    PayPal offer this service, but I was keen to find others too but
    so far I haven't been successful...

    Again, thanks for your assistance on this...

    hey guys, I emailed moneybookers 9 days ago and finally got an answer today and they say they don't have a merchant account in that particular way, so that's out of the question I guess
