    This site has been getting a lot of attention lately and is coming highly recommended. Lots of good press too. https://www.wepay.com They are also big on philanthropy. I've been following what people are saying and they really seem to love it. They don't just do donations. You can sell things on their site or on your own website. You can actually collect money for lots of things, just like PayPal. They also give you a debit card.

    Faces the same problem and will disappear just as quick as it appeared.

    https://www.wepay.com/about/fees

    Who in their right mind would use this, when the fees are worse than Paypal?

    As much as I hate Paypal, and I get the psychological jollies from bashing it, it's not going anywhere, and mostly for good reason. If a company could compete, they would have. Moneybookers does a pretty good job, and they've got the market share to prove it. Others, fly by night, and they cater to a "we hate Paypal" demographic that, like OWS, can't articulate why they're unhappy and what solutions they want.

    Paypal, like it or not, has operating costs. Remember that Romanian scammer who took your money? Yeah, Paypal may have had to compensate you for it.

    Like I said, I'm far from a Paypal fan, in fact sometimes I downright loathe dealing with them. However, I try and look at this analytically, and I'm trying to bring some sense to the anti-Paypal BS out there.

    Was this the company started by that young kid, 20 years old or something? I remember reading about a younger guy using his inheritance money to start up an online payment processor but I can't seem to place the name...

    Unfortunately , I have very bad experience with 2co. bcoz I have used them for 1 year with no dispute from any of my clients then one day 2co send me am email that they want to close my account, they sent me the remaining money to my payoneer card and closed my account. I asked for reason, they informed they have right to close any account as they want .

    I have a chat with them that is below:

    chrisc: Hi there
    chrisc: Unfortunately we can't accept payments from PayPal
    chrisc: Or international payments

    If some one can not accept paypal you cant say them as a good alternative to paypal. There are plenty of paypal users and you have to take payments from them. Just some one accepts some cards is not the full answer to paypal.

    2CO did the same thing to me and then referred me to some credit card processor. I found out that I wasn't doing enough business with 2CO that's why they closed mine and a bunch of other peoples accounts. I asked for a refund on the set up fee with them and they told me to take a hike.

    Once upon a time, there was a web browser called Internet Explorer, which had over 95% market share on the browser scene. MS basically ignored complaints over its design flaws and susceptibility to malware, smugly wondering 'hey, where are they going to go?' UNTIL, some consumers put their foot down and started supporting Firefox. Within months, IE's share dropped 25%, which was enough for it to finally try to get serious about improving and dealing with spyware and viruses better.

    We might all live happier ever after if we supported decent PP alternatives when they came along, instead of quibbling over correctable flaws. Competition HAS arrived, and it's on us to help it out.
