What are some alternatives to PayPal?

    I know there are some alternative companies that provide the same services as PayPal. I'd like your opinion on what you think are the best ones out there?

    Skrill, Google Wallet, Propay & Intuit are all alternatives to Paypal. I like Skrill better, since the costs to use it are pretty low.

    Skrill & 2co are good alternatives. Otherwise if you have sufficient volume you may apply for your own merchant account!

    Paypal is widely accepted payment processor so why need to go with other alternative IMO. Stick with it.

    DON.

    Largely this depends on what features and aspects of PayPal that you are looking for and how accepting PayPal is of your business. Alternatives are everywhere, the trick is to find the right alternative for you.

    Well , it depends on which country you live in . For me i dumped paypal long time ago and the best alternative to me is amazon payment . Paypal can close your account for no reasons and ask for lots of prove documentation which is nonsense for some people who deposit only 100$ a month .

    Stripe stripe.com is the best alternative to Paypal. And Paymate paymate.com is similar.

    I use square. It is simple. From what I am seeing these days, the interest they charge seems to be about average. Usually around 2 to 3 percent.

    Unfortunately, not many match Paypal for budding freelancers and small businesses. I have Skrill as an alternative because of poor Customer care response from Paypal and I think they were good, except for the fact that they were a bit expensive compared to Paypal- but Skrill was Prompt and attended emails in time.

    If you have reasonable number of transactions, .2co is a good idea. I understand they have a good support as well.

    I read positives about Stripe, but never had a chance to try.

    The alternatives are Alertpay and Moneybookers (that changed names). Quiz - Do you know which are these names? :)
