I believe non-US based payment systems do not report if you are not US. They may report to other countries, but most governments are not as obsessive about trying to minutely track your every financial footstep as is the US.
you have to consider the bank account. Many online payment methods such as moonebookers, paypal, you have to withdraw your money to your personal bank account. At least I'm doing that as I feel safety. But for example in Bulgaria, my bank wanted to provide prove for the money if they are more than 15000 EUR. My point is to check your bank if they are reporting somewhere your funds.
Hope that helps a bit
But for example with moneybookers u can use a debit card to get ur money and i think the same is possible with Neteller, or am i wrong?
Yes you could use debit card, but it has limit. Also debit card is good to buy some small things, but if you are making couple of 1000s and want to buy a car for example, I'm sure you can't do it. ( you probably can, but have to increase the limits, which will take some time). It is better if those money are at your bank account and you could withdraw them and buy the car almost immediately . Also I will not keep such money into my online wallet, for security reasons. Maybe I'm suspicious, but that what I'm doing and it works for me.
Im in the US and wondering if there is a way to get receive money without it being reported. I bet there isn't tho. Damn uncle sam!
Yes, offshore company is a good option. I'm sorry that you has bad experience with the'm sure you could make deeper research about offshore companies and to find what is suitable for you. To be honest many US companies such as broker firms are using them successfully, but you have to find the right one. Try now with those methods and if they do not work for you, go back with the offshore companies, but this time make deeper research before do anything.
As someone doing business in Europe (and Europe based), I can safely say that Paypal does not report any earnings let alone giving out reports. That is you keep Paypal transactions within Paypal (and do not withdraw any funds to your bank or company registered Credit/Debit card).For moneybookers, it is 'plausible' because they are based in the UK and FSA registered, meaning that at some point it is possible to report on your earnings. However if you are not residing/doing business in the UK, then it should be ok.Regardless of whether your paypal is registered to a business (which requires verification such as sending your company registration docs/etc) or to an individual, your best/safest option is to spend whatever money you get into paypal on other online purchases.As an individual, with Moneybookers, your privacy is quite safe and only in the event of a legal lawsuit/investigation by your local authorities which requires a court order, MB does not share the data (as long as you are verified with MB and your account is in good standing).Try to apply for the MB debit card (similar yo Payoneer), which makes it easier for you to get online payments, while using your debit card for local or online purchases.No idea about Neteller or others because Paypal/Moneybookers do just fine.Hope this helps.
True that. Try moneybookers or Liberty reserve. They are pretty good. Also they cannot be reversed.
i guess paypal is a good source, but i am not sure if its available in all Asian countries or not. Check their site for details, you can send directly into your bank account as well.
For us residents a good info source is perhaps http://www.sovereignman.com/
