    I am looking for some advice with PayPal. Which accounts do ppl recommend and use or alternatively ppl seem to recommend google checkout and moneybrokers.

    I found this post that is very worrying indeed:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/31213-gift-paypal.html

    Is it ok to just use the standard PayPal account or do you get hit with high charges to withdraw?

    I looked into this a long time ago and PayPal used to have an account you had to pay for otherwise there were unreasonable charges to withdraw this seems to have changed.

    IMHO the PayPal site is total BS and cant get much info out of it at all. I would really appreciate some advice on this and dont seem to be able to find any useful PayPal guides online.

    Apologies for the noob questions but dont want to get screwed on any of my transactions.

    Hope this posts replies will also help some other ppl

    :D

    EDIT: I found this which is 100x more useful than the site:

    Have to be careful with Ppay, they could freeze accounts and demand faxing of particulars to match rregistration records, so for small amount its not too bad but where bigger sums are involved better to use real identity or somebody you know of course with their permission

    Cheers for the advice guys.

    Am I reading it right - if you want over £500 (or $ cant remember) you need the premium account?

    Does it charge a monthly fee the PP site is so BS I cant work out if they charge - is it just a higher % for say a few thousand per month?

    Apologies I have only used PP to buy stuff previously.

    :rolleyes:
