    Hi there.
    I'm trying to start off as an article writer and was wondering what would be the best payment method to use.
    As far as I know, looks like the majority of you guys seems to be using paypal as a payment method.
    As my earnings would be fairly low (I'd be happy to average a 30USD/day) I was wondering if Paypal does charge taxes (I live outside the US) and commission on top of my earnings.
    Thanks.

    No matter what you think what the best payment processor is, You are still forced to use what your clients are willing to use which is mostly paypal then comes moneybookers (Skrill).

    From like 1000 received payments per month you can get < 5 which are not paypal.

    there is no real alternative for PayPal, most of the clients, websites prefer to pay with PayPal, however after PayPal I will certainly vote for MoneyBookers

    Yeah, MB will never make you feel unsafe keeping the money in there, and withdrawing is as simple as the pay pal process

    True, PayPal is the biggest. But a thing I always questioned, how do you prevent recalls when you sell digital goods?

    In the passed I used paypal for YT views, but I received so many recalls that it didn't became profitable! If anyone got a work around for that?
