    I also got another question - If I withdraw $50 from freelance site like odesk or GAF and my moneybookers account is INR account, then, how much will I get in my moneybookers INR account?

    I know I can wait and see once my withdrawal method is active, but I am just curious.

    MB is really a very good payment processing option. It has very low fixed transaction fees and very good customer support also. It is really one of the best options.

    I don't like MoneyBookers, but we still keep it at lacehost/leapswitch for clients who don't have PayPal. I find MoneyBookers fees higher than PayPal.
    Higher receiving fees
    Higher sending fees
    Refund fees - that is the worst part
    And fees exceed payments , if the payment is $0.3 or so . PayPal wont charge fees for such a payment. But Moneybookers leaves you with - 0.15 (negative) balance if someone sends you such an amount. Also, if we try to refund such a small payment, we get charged for that refund.

    after paypal stole my money I went with moneybookers who honestly was no better then paypal. well they didn't steal my money like paypal but there was always a delay with getting my $ and so many problems with every little thing. MerchantInc is a very good and super cheep paypal alternative. It's what I am using now

    yeah right, it's pretty obvious you are promoting or working for MerchantInc ( hint: look at your posts history http://forums.digitalpoint.com/search.php?searchid=8580025 ).

    No need to write false accusation about moneybookers or paypal.

    MerchantInc is not paypal alternative, MerchantInc is direct merchant account issuer for Wells Fargo Bank. MerchantInc is not paypal alternative, MerchantInc is direct merchant account issuer for Wells Fargo Bank. MerchantInc has no control about merchant funds. Wells Fargo does.
