    PAYPAL SUCKS​


    Think PayPal sucks? Tired of PayPal?s idiosyncrasies? Mad at PayPal for freezing your account without any justifiable reason and therefore putting a halt to your online business? Don?t worry, you?re not alone. There are tons of people who despise PayPal for one reason or another. Are you looking for an alternative to PayPal for your business? You are? Good, because I have eleven alternatives for you to consider.

    By the way, if you?re a disgruntled PayPal user you may be interested in visiting this site full of PayPal hating goodness:

    Code:
    http://www.paypalsucks.com
    Vent out your anger my friend. That?s right, let it all out!

    Ok now, let?s get on with the show and focus on some PayPal alternatives:

    1) Google Checkout - http://checkout.google.com/sell

    Not contempt with dominating the search engine market, Google decided to play the merchant account provider game too. Why not? I mean, we all know that Google will one day rule the world.

    When you use Google Checkout to process your sales, you?ll be charged 2% + $0.20 per transaction. If you advertise with Google AdWords, you will also be eligible for free credit card processing for some or all of your Google Checkout sales. Also there are no monthly, setup or gateway fees.

    2) Digital River - http://www.digitalriver.com

    Digital River, based in Eden Prairie, Minn, provides custom e-commerce solutions starting with your basic shopping cart going all the way to advanced solutions such as multi-currency merchant accounts. Best selling point: Digital River does not hold sellers? money and will take the hit if a product needs to be returned. Also Digital River has no up-front cost and won?t charge until the first sale. Afterwards, its fee is based on performance, beginning at 2.9% plus a $1.00 transaction fee.

    3) 2Checkout.com - http://www.2checkout.com

    Established in 1999 and headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, 2CO provides turnkey e-commerce solutions. 2Checkout.com is a very popular processor of credit card and check payment that has separated itself from the typical merchant account provider crowd with their no-hassle sing-up process. You can have a merchant account setup with 2checkout in just a few minutes - no background or credit check will be done!

    2Checkout asks for a one time only set up fee of $49.00. After that, you only pay for sales. If you sell nothing, you pay nothing. 2CO collects a 5.5% commission on each transaction plus a $0.45 charge per sale. There are no leases, no monthly fees, no application fees, no gateway fees, no additional card company or third party charges and no statement fees.

    4) AlertPay - http://www.alertpay.com

    Montreal-based AlertPay is the up-and-coming challenger vying to take over PayPal?s position of top dog on the payment processor scene. AlertPay came about as an attempt to meet the needs of ?less mainstream? merchants which weren?t being catered to properly by PayPal. AlertPay founder Firoz Patel says his company ?saw this particularly with multi-level marketing,? and that ?some clients simply need more time and attention when it comes to payments.?

    The introductory rate for AlertPay is 2.5% per transaction. But if your company is ?off the beaten path? and requires more service, be prepared to pay 3.9%.

    5) Bidpay: http://www.BidPay.com

    This service is available only for those who buy and sell at online auctions. Buyers use their credit or debit card to make their purchases from you and BidPay sends you a Western Union Money Order or the payment is directly deposited into your checking account if you live in the U.S.

    6) CCNow: http://www.CCNow.com

    A shopping cart solution that also allows you to take all major credit cards without a merchant account. They pay you your earnings twice a month and while your money is sitting on account it earns 1.5% APR.

    7) Ikobo: http://www.IKobo.com

    With merchant fees at $2.99 plus .29 per transaction, and no extra fees for international transactions. You can sell to buyers in 170 countries. Payments are deposited to your bank account or to your Ikobo Visa debit card.

    8) ClickBank: http://www.ClickBank.com

    ClickBank is good for selling digital products and comes with a built-in affiliate program. You?ll have to pay a one time fee of $50.00, then it?s only $1.00 plus 7.5% of each transaction. Allows you to take payments from all credit card types and even PayPal payments.

    9) ProPay: http://www.ProPay.com

    Accept payments by credit card via the web or even by phone. Funds are deposited into your ProPay account. You can get a ProPay MasterCard to access your funds or transfer your earnings to your bank account. They have four types of accounts to choose from: Basic, Premium, Premium Plus, Platinum, with annual pricing from $34.95 all the way up to $299.95, depending on the features and type of account you need.

    10) Money Bookers: http://www.moneybookers.com

    Money Bookers offers a merchant feature that allows you to create order buttons for your website and be paid by credit card. Fees range from 2% all the way up to 8%, depending on how payments are made. No setup or monthly fees. You can accept payments from over 30 countries. Money can be transferred instantly to your bank account.

    11) Payoneer

    Payoneer markets, manages and services prepaid MasterCard cards. Payoneer works together with the First Bank of Delaware to issue and process cards. However, Payoneer also has a new offering they call a ?US Virtual Account.? Essentially this allows Payoneer prepaid MasterCard holders that live outside the US to receive direct Automated Clearing House (ACH) deposits/payments without the necessity of actually having a US bank account.

    Not bad. But, Just a quick note: Bidpay bellied up for the 2nd and I am guessing last time last December. A shame too cause I definitely HATE paypal and they sent money right to my bank. Anyone have anything good to say about alertpay? I do google checkout but beware. JERKs ( like one on HERE) can buy your digital or emailed products, take them and then claim they didn't authorize the charge and get their money back plus keep your sh*t and google won't help you as they have the same policy as PP that you have to provide tracking and proof you shipped. so those of you who need to do e-products, be careful!

    I would be very careful with google checkout one merchant I did business with a couple of months ago just had all of their google checkout transactions reversed. Google sent the money back to my CC even though I never disputed the transaction and the merchant lost the money in their account. I repaid the merchant, because I am an honest guy, but I am going to guess the merchant probably lost a lot of money.

    2*c*h*e*c*k*o*u*t. They will reverse charges for digital product downloads simply because 'the customer requested a refund' or for whatever reason without notifying you first. You will find out after wards. Also, if you ship to the usa or to any country overseas they require you to provide a tracking number, which can get quite expensive if you are shipping to a foreign country. Also, if you take longer than 4 days to ship they charge you 25 cents to re-verify (not sure of the terminology they use) the credit card.

    Another company not on the list is C*C*B*i*L*L. You "may" have to pay a one time $750 fee then $250 annually to process visa credit cards with them. They say you pay this if your site is high risk or whatever that means.

    I mainly use Moneybookers for my online transactions.

    The problem is that many in the US do not use it, though I found it to be moderately popular in the EU.

    It is good because I do not have any headaches because of chargebacks, as they are not allowed there. And the whole site inspires me more credibility than PP does, which froze my account because I put in the wrong verification number (they messed it up).

    But the problem is the usage. I lost many sales because I refused to use Paypal.

    For alertpay pray that you never have to open a dispute. I got scammed and opened a dispute over 2 months ago. I have yet to hear anything about it and after calling all they tell me is to wait..

    I definately back Alertpay 100%, since my paypal was limited. Would love to see more people using it.

    There support team isnt some guy named Raj pretending his name is Tim, so thats a big plus.

    Thanks and good luck,
