I'm getting tired of Paypal...

PP is just getting to be too much of a hassle lately. I live outside the USA and trying to do anything like linking a bank involves hours spent waiting on hold, etc. So I'm looking at other solutions... Anyone here use Stripe? If so, how do you like it? Any pros/cons?

Also, if anyone has a PP alternative feel free to post about it. Let's get a discussion going.

Thanks!

      Payoneer is only a 3rd payment service...you can't integrate it on your website!

      I have the same problem with OP... and have met the problem when I add the bank account from payoneer into Paypal...

      and I choose to use Stripe... it's a Hongkong business account but I got another problem, the HK bank rejected the transaction from Stripe...

      sad...

  • I am using Paypal all the while and I did not face any problem using it. It is in fact very user friendly and I suggest you contact their support to solve any technical problem that you have.

    PP is hampering a lot. You should try another method. Payoneer or Skrill would be a nice choice to start.

    I'm a freelancer and using Payoneer for years because PP didn't work in my country, so this is the best alternative for me

    Yeah. Stripe is good although they will side with the buyers mostly all the time.

    Recently Paypal started a dropshipping program (not for everyone). They wont hold that much of your money anymore but as I said, Stripe is your best bet.

    You can use Payoneer or TransferWise as a Paypal alternative.

    Sorry about the difficulty faced in verifying your PayPal account, Sushiman1111! But I believe you had a cogent reason for using PayPal as some people out there use it not because it's a reputable and trusted payment processor alone but because most companies in the US pay via PayPal.

    If the problem you're currently having with your PayPal account is about linking your bank account, then I can help you out but only on providing answers to the following questions genuinely:


    1. Is your PayPal account US based or not?

    2. Have you previously verified your PayPal account with a VCC and a real phone number?

    3. Are you having an IP conflict issue with PayPal

    Let's go from there first and other things will follow depending on your response. Thanks for asking!

    Paypal is the only payment online transaction that I used since 2015, but I must agree with the fact there has been a lot of complication lately.

    What is your business? Do you run a ecom store? If so then go for stripe atlas. It's easy to do account there.

    I don't see any conflict in my PayPal. You can give it a try Skrill or Payoneer.

    Stripe charges straightforward low fees for online credit card payments. But it's not right for all businesses.
    Are you owner of any business?
    Both are same at some points. It's just that PP is easy in using. and if you find any hassle, move to stripe. Its safe.

    Paypal can be really tiring but they are universal and plays an important role in the eCom business It's the easiest way to receive payments, maybe u just have to abide by their rules.

  • There are no alternatives to paypal or stripe.. every alternative has more cons than PP or stripe itself.

    Truth is, if you really want to really be a big player in the internet sales and business arena, you are going to need PayPal to succeed.

    The best thing is patience and provide all they ask for and then have a secondary payment method.

    If you really can't get this through then there are lots of businesses online you won't be able to partake in.

    Hii Sushiman1111, you make some good points. But I have lived overseas and I can tell you PayPal came in handy. I needed to transfer money from Malaysia to a private party/friend in Indonesia. A credit card was not an option. Western Union is not free or convenient, but paypal is.

    I live outside USA too but I had no problems with PP. I mean, I guess everyone (from every part of the world) will waste some time linking your bank account or send proof of identity when you reach to certain amount. I don't think it's that much though...

    I also work with Payoneer and I am happy with it too. Payoneer is also available in countries where PP isn't, so it's really handy for transactions in these countries.

    Try Paxum first if PP isn't working for you, The fees is 1$ across the board.
    Payoneer is also pretty good. We've been using them in our Self service platform, And it's been a lot more comfortable in comparison to pay pal

    payoneer is preferable and more flexible
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11468814].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author SharonMaven
    In general, 3% fee for every deposit on pay pal is rather high, especially when you make big deposits. Paxum, for instance, takes 1$ fee across the board and most networks use them. Payoneer, also, extremely minimal fees. Most paying services has better fees them Pay Pal.

    And if your an online marketer that get paid by through pay pal disputes are much more easy to win for the buyer, meaning who ever bought the traffic, and since there is nothing physical that proves he bought traffic he would win. It's quite a loop hole for the online industry and could be a gateway for fraudulent activity

    Stripe is awesome ... number 1 as far as I'm concerned. If you ever consider accepting bitcoin, I recommend looking into BTCpayServer https://github.com/btcpayserver/btcpayserver - No merchant fees + super low transaction fees + instant payment and best of all, you never have to worry about charge back. Good luck man and get rid of Paypal, they're thieves!

    Not sure about your customers and how tehy are likely to pay for your services, but maybe try to use cryptos like bitcoin, ethereum?

    For example, I had paypal long time ago, but it was headache.
    So I completely stoped using pp and started to use cryptos instead and I am really happy that I made such decission.

    Try getting your own merchant account. Go to google and type in Merchant Account [YOUR COUNTRY].


    Just be careful, a lot of wolves in that business.
