The Best PayPal Alternatives - Why PayPal?
Published By srk4you on 2011-11-18 314 Views
We all know that PayPal is the e-payment giant with support to more than 200 countries. However, not all PayPal services are available in all countries. Some cannot withdraw funds and some cannot receive any payments. Some countries are not even allowed to have a PayPal account ( Why is PayPal not available in all countries ) .
Now most of the websites solely have PayPal as the payment option. It is really difficult (and discouraging as well) to see this. Below are Top 3 PayPal alternatives I have used. They have top-class security features, credit card fraud prevention and maintain SSL connection in their payment gateways. This leaves no space for fraud and manipulation.
Top 3 PayPal alternatives:
1. AlertPay: AlertPay is the top PayPal alternative and a competitor as well. AlertPay supports accounts in more than 190 countries with localized banking transfers in about 50 countries. Plus, AlertPay has their own MasterCard powered debit card that can be linked to our AlertPay account and used anywhere in the world.
More services offered by AlertPay:
Localized Bank Transfers
Secured Credit Card Payments
Secured Credit/Debit Card Withdrawls
AlertPay Prepaid MasterCard
AlertPay recently commenced a full-fledged local service in Bangladesh. This means that AlertPay, the leading PayPal alternative is now available for local transactions for Bangladesh. This is a good news as PayPal is not available for accounts in Bangladesh. AlertPay is really going for the way!
With this step, AlertPay has also introduced limited numbers of AlertPay prepaid Visa cards for account holders in Bangladesh. The Visa Prepaid Debit Card is used in conjunction with the AlertPay e-wallet.
2. Payoneer: Payoneer is a company that primarily deals with prepaid MasterCard debit cards. Web based companies apply to become a Payoneer partner and they pay their affiliates in a MasterCard available all over thre world. Some popular companies that pay via a Payoneer card are: oDesk, Freelancer, iStockPhoto, Dreamstime, Fast Spring, Infolinks, MediaShakers.

3. Moneybookers (Skrill): Moneybookers is now Skrill. With its main office in the UK, Moneybookers is very strict in terms of security and fraud. Accounts will need to be physically verified as well, meaning that Moneybookers will mail a PIN to your physical address and you need to insert it in your Moneybookers account. Supports foreign currency exchange in more than 40 currencies and 210 countries.
