What are the most popular payment methods to use?

    I've always used paypal but i can't now as my account is being verified for earning over my monthly limits so now i have to wait for two weeks until i can use it again.

    I can usually earn a lot on a monthly basis via Paypal but now i can't so i am wondering what is the most popular payment method for paying for services online apart from paypal? I've decided on Moneybookers but it doesn't seem that popular.

    Thanks

    I use Moneybookers for a year now. Some small server issues but the problems are solved very fast. Maybe they are not popular in the US but the world is bigger than that.

    You can opt for alertpay but I would still suggest you to have your Paypal account verified, to enjoy limitless transactions....forever! :)

    As far as overall, Paypal has a market share of somewhere near 30%. Using a standard merchant account is probably close to 60%, and the remaining 10% would be split between various 3rd party processors like 2checkout, moneybookers, etc...

    you can get verified in paypal by adding credit card if you are unable to get long time to get a credit card -get a virtual credit card from entropay.com

    and some another options include:
    ikobo
    rhumsikypay

    AlertPay and 2CO are good options according to me but still I will prefer to lift the PayPal limit and use it as PP is just best one.

    Or is it because you are scamming someone, got his money never did what you promised, and you spent the money and you can't refund him now?

    Why don't you spend your time in earning the money...

    There are too many PayPal complaints to work with them. Even if you pay more, it's for the best to do classic wire transfers.

    As an alternative to Paypal, I use Moneybookers. I haven't used any of the others though.

    This is an interesting question that every merchant is keen to understand.
    I reckon the most popular service oir method varies from sector to sector.
    So most online shoppers, shopping at an online store, like to buy with their credit or scheme debit card, if they can.
    Many buying at online auction sites like to use PayPal, and people online at gaming and adult entertainment sites are quite partial to services like MoneyBookers etc.

    As much as I hate to say it... Paypal remains the market leader for online payments. Any online merchant cannot afford to neglect having them as a checkout method for their customers.

    Paypal is #1. If you need other process, try alertpay or others.

    But for what purpose, you need?

    so that i can tell you best payment processes.

    Webmoney, epassporte, moneybookers and neteller.The last one is my favorite, decent withdrawal limit on the card, and you can create disposable virtual cc's that only work once.

    As far popularity is concerned the top three are:

    Paypal
    Moneybookers
    Alertpay

    I looked at using moneybookers instead of paypal, but i chose paypal because moneybookers has a monthly limit (I think about $3k) and if you want to go over that, you have to go thru all kinds of crazy identification procedures.
    my product sells for $2k, so moneybookers wasn't much help.
    when I looked for an affiliate program, I listed with paydotcom, which also uses paypal, and haven't had any problems.
    if you read the forums, you will find plenty of complaints about all of them
