We all are familiar with PayPal! Aren’t we? Well, PayPal is a great way of making payments online. You can not only make payments for shopping and stuff but you can also receive your incomes online using PayPal. Well, for some or the other reason some of you may not find PayPal great. If that’s the case then I would like to mention to you some of the top alternatives to PayPal.
Moneybookers is a London, UK based internet payments service. It has about 3.6 million users worldwide. You can receive your earnings on payments from others absolutely free. But, while sending you’ll be charged 1% on the total amount being sent. Buyers and sellers are offered good protection.
PayPay? Sounds like PayPal doesn’t it? Well, it’s in no way affiliated with PayPal. PayPay allows users send and receive money using their PayPay accounts. You also can send/ receive money by sending an email, SMS, etc. Personal as well as Business accounts can be created freely. Charges are pretty much the same as PayPal.
AlertPay is the rising leader in secure online payment solutions that was founded to facilitate safe instant payments between individuals and online businesses. It currently has over three million users. It suits for less mainstream merchants. AlertPay charges an introductory rate of 2.5% per transaction for Pro account and for Starter it’s FREE. If you need more services then the rate is high; around 4%.
Xoom is a good online payment service but the problem is that it’s little expensive, the rates are higher than services mentioned above. But, in Xoom you don’t need to signup to transfer money. Isn’t that cool?
Considering the above services, I would Money Brookers and PayPal are great if you are looking for an alternative to PayPal.
