    Paypal doesn't support your country? Use this AMAZING alternative !!!

    ok ok , i'm super excited that i found a secure , reliable and fast payment method. Mods , you can take out all of your gadgets and sweep the thread for referral ID's , there aren't any .

    I've been searching so long for a payment method as an international user. Paypal support around 40+ countries in the whole world and call themselves THE payment method. I went through countless websites , but they were either fake (greezap.com) , aren't trusted (ikobo.com) or too strict and expensive (2checkout.com and other Credit Card processors).

    So , what's that payment method i'm talking about? It's Moneybookers !. Ofcourse i knew about them before , but they had a TIRESOME credit card varification process which consists of sending copies of your CC , id and other stuff. Who would want to do that? NO ONE (except for those who have no choice). Now moneybookers changed it's verification process and used another easy , yet effective , way. I'll get to it soon.

    So how does this work?

    Sign up :
    Typical sign-up process , fast and not complicated. ANYONE from ANY COUNTRY can sign-up with money bookers.

    Funding account :
    There are two ways ; you can fund your account with wire transfer (which might be expensive. Depends on your bank) , or by Credit Card.

    You could fund your moneybookers account with Visa , Mastercard or a few others (can't recall them). Money bookers , after verifying tht you're the owner of the credit card , takes only 2.50% from the amount you specify to fund your account.

    Verification Process :
    Moneybookers now simplified the Credit Card verification process. After you add a CC (Credit Card) to your profile , Moneybookers will debt an amount between 1.00 and 2.99 (or so) from your CC. Then you should check your CC statement (it's probably online if your bank isn't retarded) for the EXACT amount they've debt and enter it in their site. That's it !!! your CC is now verified and you could start using that CC with moneybookers anytime !! (the amount they've debt will go into your account , too)

    Withdrawing Money :
    Mneybookers can send checks to a few countries , but who need checks when you could withdraw the money to your bank account any where in the world for only $2.22? It's amazing !!!

    Recieving the payment via wire isn't instant though. Takes around 3-5 business days , but who cares?

    Extra security :
    For those who doubt the honesty of the seller they're buying from ; moneybookers offers a built-in escrow service for only 1% of the amount to be sent ( but minimum of EUR 2). Now tell me this isn't cheap !


    Why don't you just visit their FAQ and learn more about moneybookers? It's an unbelieveable service for an international user like me .

    Paypal users might not be interested. So they can just hit the "back" button and find another thread


    note to Egor : i TOLD YOU i'm going to find a reliable payment system. So don't suggest moving to australia anymore

    That actually looks pretty cool. Have you made many transactions yet?
    Right now, I use Ikobo, but the fees are just "so so". Is this one a little better?

    Yea this one is MUCH better.

    I've funded my account with around $15 with my master card and withdrawn them again to my bank account to test the service. 3 business days later they were in my bank account .

    ikobo charges too much. IKobo also charge you $.99 monthly and $2 each time you withdraw. This one doesn't.

    well , some people do . Besides , it doesn't support MasterCard any more.

    I prefer moneybookers because it's faster and cheaper.

    I don't think so. It's mainly a P2P (Person To Person) Solution.

    Congrats
    You could use Cashu long time ago
    http://www.cashu.com
    It's only supported in Middle East!! much flexable than any other system
    lol My friends use it, but for me I don't have any payment system

    I use cashu , too. It provided me with the MasterCard i'm using currently. An unbeatable service , but it's limited to arab countries only.

    I'm going to use moneybookers.com for international payments only.

    I have to say too that Moneybookers is good for paying people who cannot accept paypal. It can be a pain if you have any support issues, but very slick service. ikobo what a crock of s!@t ... I ran fast from them they suck from my experience.

    Moneybookers sure looks cool. Just recently I've recieved my first payment from a sponsor to it. I am yet to do my first withdrawal of money. Guess what, I live in Croatia!

    If withdrawal passes fine, then three cheers for moneybookers. I can understand how you feel mPeror. Finally, us in not so lucky by paypal countries get to have part of that paypal-like luxury.
