    Default Payoneer vs. Paypal

    Since I have already experienced the frustrations of being a subject of Paypal "nightmare" limitations, I do not wish to repeat the same mistake over again. Just imagine what I have been through, I can't withdraw my money during my most desperate times. I've cursed both Paypal and my stupidity.

    Piece of advice...

    Do not ever be contented with one service. Diversify. I am considering now having a Payoneer and alertpay accounts, since I am affiliated with some sites that accept these websites as an alternative to Paypal. If you have experience with them, please share it here for the others to review and consider.

    You should double-check the integrity of those sites that claim to use AlertPay as one of their payment processors. Note, AlertPay became Payza in May 2012. It's a bit suspect if these sites have not updated their content for over a year.

    Thank you for that information. I didn't know that AlertPay was now Payza. I often wonder about the integrity of other companies, like Paypal, that try to capitalize on people's distrust of the service. I don't know who I would trust at this point.

    That's really valuable information. It would seem that every self respecting website would update their content. Especially if this is something involved with money.

    Default PayPal Alternatives

    I think that it definitely pays for a person to do their research. I generally go online and Google something like 'Reviews' for a particular company or service. You can also Google something like 'Consumer reviews' for a specific company too, and you'll usually get some pretty good search results, but I've done it enough times now and have completely changed my mind about a company if I've read too many bad reviews for it, so I think researching some sites like this is well worth a person's time and probably ends up saving a lot of time, along with any future frustrations, as well.

    I agree! I learned this the hard way years ago. When it comes to the web, nothing is guaranteed. Sites close down and sites go under as do businesses. There are so many tech issues that can pop up and your money could be gone in an instant. I like having multiple bank accounts for this reason as well.

    My experience with Payoneer thus far has been good. I don't know about alertpay however. I must go ahead and check them out right now. Payoneer may be good, but they only partner with some companies so that you can get your pay. If they're not a partner, you most likely have to send your money to paypal then withdraw it to payoneer.

    I agree with you. There are endless possibilities. That is why as soon as I earn my money, I withdraw it to Paypal (the intermediary) and then to my bank account. As a matter of fact, I don't even leave my money in the bank too long. It's best I use it before I die. LOL.

    To be honest with you, I am more likely to trust PayPal than Payza. I've never tried it and don't think I will. PayPal has its troubles, but at least I don't have to subject myself to ridiculous fees . As a matter of fact, I pay no fees on PayPal. I just collect my pay and send it to my bank account.

    I have used Payoneer in the past and it was quite good. One thing I really liked was they actually give you a card, and you can use it at ATMs to withdraw money! I think you could even use it in some stores, but because I'm Australian it was a little complicated and didn't work. But it was really good to be able to withdraw money anywhere, instead of having to wait for it to clear into your bank account like you have to with Paypal.
