    Hi everyone. I have been working on an account and I'm willing to sell shoutouts. Posts are in English and most of my followers are from USA-UK and the rest come from Europe and India.

    But the problem is PayPal left my country. Which means I can't use paypal to send and receive any money using my bank account. They just stopped working in my country because of the regulations.

    Now, the question is, what's the easiest way for people to pay me?

    Have you thought about bitcon payments? It's easy to send/receive. All you need is to register for bitcon wallet and anyone with a credit card will be able to send you payments.

    Not sure if 2Checkout would allow that service but it is worth looking at as they can take PP for you as well as credit cards.

    You must have a registered business to use 2 Checkout (I currently use them for my Hosting Company and it was very hard to get accepted).

    I have several accounts with them and they are a solid alternative to those that have PP issues and if you send them decent volume their rates are very strong.

    I've never had a problem getting accepted by them at any time as they are pretty straight forward in what they require but perhaps it is because you use them for a hosting company.

    Thaks for your answers. Do people need a bitcoin wallet/account to send money, or can they just pay with their credit cards and still have no relation to bitcoin?

    Also, PayPal is pretty much known and used by everyone. No one minds using paypal to make a payment, would bitocin cause anyone to, flinch, maybe?

    Nope. Thanks for the help though.

    Try Xoom.

    Clients have paid me via that system.

    Quick and easy.

    Remarkably drama-free. Paypal can get quite nasty sometimes.

    Well, bitcon payments could scare customers, that's a fact, since they're not protected like they are when using PayPal. But if you got good reputation, that won't be a problem

    The OP could also try indiacoin.com, where people can purchase BTC directly from a debit or credit card, and send to the wallet address of their choice. In which case, the buyers don't have to themselves directly deal with bitcoin, they just get their card verified with indiacoin, buy the amount needed to make the purchase, and send to your bitcoin wallet. Then seller sends them the product or service they ordered, transaction completed.

    Skrill, payza, payoneer are good options. You want to use one or two that your customers may already have

    Unfortunately if you can't use PayPal you should... Consider some kind of workaround since PP has no real alternative.
    Yes there are lots of payment providers way more useful for you as a service but buyers rarely use them. PayPal is very popular & safe for the buyer. Bitcoin is great for you as a seller but not for the buyer since they cannot reverse the tx after it is completed or file a claim if you scam them. This is the case with most other providers.
    I'd suggest you go w/a fake PP account or you are in big trouble since most real people have no clue about those bitcoin ditcoin etc but most of them use PayPal or have a card which they can attach right after they register PayPal in case they don't have an account.
    People here mansion lot of names but keep in mind some of them are tech savvy and up to trends. Real people want something they used to, like PayPal.

    I have two payment options in my store - PP and Bitcoin. it is account shop, so is meant for tech savvy, still less than 10% of purchases involved Bitcoin, all others - PayPal.

    Go with Bicoins - you can get Bitcoins credit card and take out your cash from ATM and bitcoins is known in all world. Paxum, Webmoney, Payza, perfectmoney - there are ton of solutions but they are not big and used usually in some parts of the world and in others not known at all and Bitcoins are global.
