    2.99% for merchant transactions and 3% + 5$ for any p2p transactions between those 170 countries supported by ikobo. For p2p tranasactions below 60$ the fee is only 3$.

    You're probably right. It may be so at ikobo as well, but as long as these frauds don't affect users, I don't consider this a problem. Frauds are something that happen anyway, it's a matter of being able to deal with them.

    I don't think ikobo or other new payment processors have the same rate of fraudulent acts like paypal. Paypal is the number one in the list of the most hacked payment services ever. Really. :)

    Actually when I point my fist is normally slightly clenched and since I point with my right hand my other 3 fingers are actually pointing to a spot to my right hand side.

    But its good to see you learned someting from your parents. :p

    Ok guys, enough finger pointing, you wouldn't want to use that finger by mistake during all of this, right?
    It's true what's been said about paypal, they do make more money than ikobo and are more popular, but it's also true that people aren't aware of the fact that there are other, perhaps even better, alternatives out there. Pretty much like the windows vs. Linux dispute. :D

    Exactly, which is why this thread started indicating all the alternatives out there. There is some really good information here. I think as soon as I've got a bit of free time I'll collect all the data on each PSP and display them on my site. It's quite difficult to obtain up to date information on all the sources as they keep updating their plans.

    It is understandable considering their fees. But I don't think this is a factor to take into consideration. iKobo has a wider coverage so ... this could compensate. ;)

    It may be so, but this will happen in time. So far it's pretty much a paypal monopoly out there, although smaller companies such as ikobo are coming strong from behind. Just hope they’re in this for the long run, enough to prove they're worthy to be viable alternatives.

    From what I read about ikobo, they are a small company with a legitimate business and they did manage to conquer a pretty good share on the market. Also some people don't like their slow customer support service but they like this payment service because it has very low fees.

    Well, I suppose that as with everything we have to take the good along with the bad. With ikobo their weak point is indeed their customer support, but lately they seem to improving in that. Just hope they'll keep it up with the improvements.

    I already use ikobo and I like their livechat system except when I am trying to talk to them and I realize that they have other time zone and there is night over there and everybody is asleep. :)

    Yeah, I think this may be one of the reasons people complain about customer support. If you look carefully at the bottom of the LiveHelp page anyone can see that there some chat hours mentioned there as well as the local time for ikobo. If the local time is out of the chat hours... well, you know what I mean. Maybe some people don't notice that and think that they aren't answering them for some reason or another.

    I haven't seen mention of Worldpay here. They are very good, a tad arrogant but an excellent solution. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.

    I have applied for it because for my business PayPal and the like have an image problem.

    PS Nice to be here, I look forward to getting acquainted.
