    Could I sell freelance services and get paid via WU or MG? People can send the money from right online with a cc...shouldn't be a problem right?

    If I have 10 transactions a day through either or maybe half and half, it wouldn't cause problems would it?

    Just trying to find out all my payment options here, thanks.

    Dude.. Check out xoom dot com - They can do transactions from paypal to WU. On whomever your working at, just tell him that payment can be done on xoom. Just read xoom's faq to know more.

    So xoom takes paypal? Just want to make sure of it before I sign up. I could have people pay me through xoom with paypal and pick the money up somewhere immediately?

    Just want to make sure I've got it right. I'm looking around. Xoom available for US people?

    Note, I have been scammed through the use of WU. I had done some work for the owner of guarana blast. I had done custom php coding to allow their site to take payment. The owner said I will send you out $350 via WU. I called got the supposed transaction ID, then called the store to find out if it was there and it wasnt. It wasn't even in the system because they never sent it. I called and asked where it was and I always got the answer "Oh its on its way..."

    My $0.02 DONT USE WU... Get inline with paypal at least that way you are guaranteed to be paid.

    Well, I wouldn't be able to get scammed for sure, but paypal has a hold on my account right now. They flagged me for a dispute that I really can't fight. Did some work for someone, and they only paid me partially. Instead of them sending the rest of my funds, they file a claim to get the money back. And now, they won't respond to me. But, my paypal is still limited and I need to still accept money.

    Xoom takes paypal. I go pickup at WU. They're right across the street from me so that's ultra convenient. I will be confirming payment before anything commences, so I'm not so worried about that. What bothers me is that there's no send to US option.

    Does xoom let you send money to people in the US?

    Damn, well there goes that alternative! What can I do? I still need to take paypal and have access to the money instantly, or near instant. Anyone know anything that could help....? Oh yea, paypal said they ain't lifting the limit right now. Said it will be up to 30 days and I gotta pay bills/eat, so gotta get that money!
