    I get this whenever I try to verify a card ->

    Due to temporary difficulties we cannot process MasterCard/Visa transactions at this time. Please try again later, or use an American Express card.

    It's been like this for days now. I googled it and it seems this problem has been on going since October 2011.

    Anyone know anything? Read this here http://blog.alertpay.com/

    Doesn't look good for alertpay one bit..

    Yep it's been some time now .

    I also cannot add funds using my mastercard to my account.

    I also googled that they also had this problem before and resolved it ,but it took some time .

    So i think we just need to wait.

    I remember this started back in October or November, doubt after this long they are going to be able to get it fixed.

    They have also stopped doing ACH transfers to your bank account. Going down hill fast.

    My situation is no big problem, I was creating an account (two of them) just to have them verified because It may be handy... but if I was a vendor I'd dump them A.S.A.P

    Oh and agreed about PayPal... pure scam, they freeze accounts everyday just to hold money to gain interest. There is no mediator for disputes... horse shit organisation.
    But PayPal always work... pity

    Yeah I don't no how they can still be "resolving" the issue after months. Annoying to say the least. Oh well. Tons of other good processors out there.
