PayPal Alternatives Please

34 replies
Hello,


I wish to start a consulting business and I will like have paypal alternatives that is well known and convenient for use to receive payment in my country as we can't receive payment from paypal at the moment.

I am aware of 2checkout but it seems like I will have to pay at the end of the day before I can fully have an account with them. Though I will like to use them but the charges is something I cant handle right now or may be I am missing something. Is possible to have a 2checkout account without paying? How if I may ask.

What other options do I have.

I just want something that is as simplified as paypal but an alternative for receiving payment which I can withdraw to my local card here in Nigeria


Thanks.

      I think it would be best that you use the search tab as there 1000s of threads on Pay Pal alternatives...

      I am happy with PAYPAL . . . have been for about 9 years.

      When you are looking for an alternative to PAYPAL I suggest that your new found online payment processor can match the leader of the pack,

      Many alternatives are here today, and gone tomorrow.

      I don't imagine that's what you really want.

    Hi, I personally recommended Payoneer due to its lower fee and trustworthiness .

    But keep paypal still the most widely used online payment system, just keep one.

    You can checkout Skrill or Stripe. But Stripe will work best for you as they are getting better than PayPal...

    +1 on Stripe. I just started using it, and I'm digging it a lot more than PayPal.

    If you have access to it in your country, give it a shot.

    Okay, I am inside Stripe now. How do I use it. Assuming someone wants to send me money, what would he go about it? and after paying me, how will I withdraw the funds physically?

    Thanks

    I have been using 2checkout for the past year and once my account was approved, I was able to recieve Paypal and Credit card payments immediately without having a Paypal account.

    Their service has been good, withdrawals are made once a week and on time and support has been responsive.

    I do have a Skrill and Payza account as backup for clients without Paypal but 2checkout is now my go to gateway.

      Did you pay any fees to get 2checkout set up?

      Hello, thanks for the reply. I have created the account at 2checkout but the whole interface lacks simplicity like paypal.


      can you help me navigate? If My clients wants to pay me, where and where to I touch to activate it?

            Do a search on Youtube and you'll probably see lots of videos that will walk you through the process. Having said that, Stripe has a very simple interface and you can be up and going within five minutes.

              Thanks. I was able to set up a link for the client and payment will be made. Now I can proceed without worries.

    I am just about to start using Stripe for the first time and I am surprised that Stripe doesn't enable you to set up a Plan for doing a one time payment. I have Paypal accounts so I think I will use Paypal for the one time payment and Stripe for the monthly and yearly payment option. How does Paypal compare in price to other payment processors?

    UPDATE: I figured out how to do one time payments with Stripe and DAP.

    Yes, Payoneer is a perfect Paypal alternative. I've used it for years along side paypal. I had clients who uses Payoneer and/or paypal so I got to use both aswell.

    I use Easy digital downloads with their 2checkout integration on my website. Not sure other ways, it's best to contact their support for further assistance

    The Paypal is one of the largest Online money transfer site. Beside the paypal there are some more site by which one can transfer, withdraw & Receive money. Firstly I choose the Paypal, secondly I choose the SKRILL. I found the skrill is in second position ion my view. I have been using these two site for a long time. Thanks

    Try using Skrill. They've updated their transaction delivery process recently and from now on you'll able to get your money transferred on your local account within a 3 days, where previously it took almost 7 days to deliver the money.

      I just found out that Stripe won't work with banks in the country of Georgia (not the state). Since everyone is suggesting payment processors they like, I'm going to be needing an online payment processor that will work with banks outside of the US. Any suggestions?

        2checkout should do. They wire funds to your bank
