    I was trying to place an order on internetbs but during checkout PayPal is no longer an option...which of the following is the best way to go: Skrill / Moneybookers, AlertPay or WebMoney?

    Never used any of those so any advice would be great.

    Having used Moneybookers for the past 3 years, I can vouch that it is the most ideal eWallet to have, especially with their pre paid mastercard with free POS transactions.

    I went ahead and used moneybookers. Payment process was painless and there was no need to create an account.

    Thanks for all the replies

    Depends on where you live. Moneybookers is not a great option for people outside UK.

    They are fast to limit your account on suspicious transactions.

    I live outside the UK and had no issues with them. You are right though in regards to them holding your account in case of any suspicions. This usually happens when your account is not verified.

    Its always better to apply for the physical address PIN verification + the usual Photo ID details right when you open the account so you don't face such issues later.

    In terms of support Moneybookers is way better than paypal. Less holding time and people are always helpful and try to speed up things from their end (such as document verification processing time and so on).

    Accounts are free at all three of them; anyway you can just integrate all three into your website?

    I know Moneybookers is the best out of the three of them, but different people prefer different services. Alertpay is convenient, but they've stopped processing credit cards recently, so people have had an issue loading with them. Webmoney isn't too popular in the United States, but a lot of Russian clients use it.
