    Default Payza Any Good For Under 18?

    I'm under 18 years old and currently bring in around $2k/month from online methods. Well, PP decided to freeze my account with over $10k (it was dumb to have that much, I know..) I've been looking at either Payza or Bitcoins, is Payza any good? I know I can use Bitcoins under 18, and they look somewhat promising.

    Depends if you want to do it by the book or not?

    Just like Paypal, Payza state that you must be 18 years or older to use an account. However, I have held an account with them while being younger. As I said, depends if you want to do it by the book.

    Although bitcoin is growing in popularity, you need to be very careful because of someone scams you, you're screwed. Paypal isn't a good service and also screws you, but at least in some cases it can be resolved (payza are much better at this), but with Bitcoins, you're completely on your own so I would not recommend.


    EDIT: I forgot to mention.. Bitcoin exchange value can also change in its extremes very quickly. Whereas if you are paid cash, you know exactly what you're getting.

    Basically what I am saying is to use Payza, just be witty about it. If you add a bank card and the card is clearly registered to a 17 year old then you are immediately treading on thin ice.

    Would I have the same limits on Payza that I do on Paypal if I didn't register a credit card/bank account?

    Sorry, I'm a bit strapped for time at the moment.

    Take a look at this link - [url]https://helpdesk.payza.com/index.php?/Base/Search/Index[/url]

    I just searched limits in their knowledge base. You should be able to find what you're looking for

    I think you can be under 18, the problm lies with validating the account you'll need a credit card, and since you have to be over 18 to have a credit card, but you can borrow your mom's credit card...

    I have used Payza even when they were still called "Alertpay", and what I don't like about them is their slow dispute settlement, you will wait for weeks or months after you filed for a dispute, and the scammer will have already withdrawn all the money in his Paypal acount by that time. My account is not verified though, and I just sell my funds in exchange for cash. They are also slow in processing funds exchange from Alertpay to Egopay even if they are the same company.

    You won't have too many options being under 18. POSSIBLY Google Wallet. I would honestly go for Bitcoins. They will be in demand soon and there is a strong chance for us all to make a good deal of money off of them.

    Being a minor puts you at a great disadvantage when it comes to accepting online payments. Most actual banks allow teenagers to have a checking account, but online payment processors are different. You might have to have someone who is over 18 help.

    Firstly I would love to know how on earth you are turning 2 grand a month and secondly yes Payza is a much better alternative to Paypal.

    You still need to be 18 years old, just like with Paypal. Also, Payza has less countries they make transactions with, be sure to check. In the future try splinting your income between a few different payment processors (if possible) to avoid a similar situation. It's not wise to keep big money in just one online wallet.
