    Hi people,

    I must first of all appreciate everyone in this fourm. U guys are awesome with the kind of contents you share here.

    Pls, I need your help. Am a newbie in IM and I got creepy when I hear what paypal does to people i.e freeze pple's accts, and all sorts of dubious things.

    Coupled with the fact that I reside in a country where using paypal is HIGHLY ILLEGAL.

    So i want to ask...what kind of internet business model can I venture into that WILL NOT REQUIRE ME USING PAYPAL?

    Looking forward to your replies,pple

    Thanks...love U to the bones.

    You don't strictly need Paypal as long as you still have a credit card or Visa / Mastercard debit card for paying for stuff, and a bank account for receiving wire payments, or you can receive paper cheques and deposit them in your account. But Paypal does make life easier in some situations, especially for receiving smaller payouts that wouldn't justify a wire payment.

    Depends on what you want to do with your paypal account. If all you want to do is send payments then you could rather use your CC. If you want to sell services and recieve money then I suggest you go for alternatives such as Plimus, money bookers, etc. They are lots out there dont worry :)

    Google Adsense pays per check, some CPA also. When you find something good to you check the FAQ of the site and look how they pay.
    The most of the time they have other payment solution.

    PS : is moneybooker allowed in your country? If yes some site paying trouht that site

    Thanks...

    I actually intend to venture into site flipping. And you are know that Plimus and MB are not that popular with receiving payments on flippa.

    Any alternative ideas?

    My dear, I reside in Nigeria, a country blacklisted almost everything relating with IM. It's really painful.We can't access paypal,moneybooker hence I can't even do CPAs.

    There's no doubt that there are scammers (just like there are in the US and UK) BUT THERE ARE A WHOLE LOTS OF MORE GENUINE PEOPLE REALLY INTERESTED IN IM AND TO MAKE CLEAN MONEY

    I guess wire transfer is the best..
    Paypal screwed my 180USD for no reason
    And if some payment need you to pay via paypal, you can just pay via guest..
    Correct me if im wrong :)
