Top 5 PayPal Alternatives in 2014
Payoneer: Payoneer is an American company which was founded back in 2005. The service lets companies pay their affiliates or employees with extreme ease. If you are a company, then you can partner with Payoneer to send payments at low rates. Or if you are a publisher, affiliate or a freelancer, then you can get a free MasterCard® for receiving your payments from several networks including oDesk, Elance, Infolinks, Amzaon, AdFly and many others. You can request money from any US company and the money will be loaded directly to your card once it is received in your account.
When you signup at Payoneer, they provide you a virtual US bank account maintained by US Payment Service. The bank account is created in Bank of America which is one of the largest banks in United States. Meantime, a MasterCard® is shipped to you. When you will receive money in your virtual bank account, the money will be loaded to your MasterCard® and you can withdraw it at any MasterCard® supported ATM across the globe.
If you are a US residence, then you can withdraw your AdSense earnings with Payoneer. Just link your Payoneer account with your AdSense account and the money will be loaded to your Payoneer card once it is transferred to your account. The charges for money transfer are just 1% for the transferred amount.
The debit card provided by Payoneer can be used at millions of online stores for purchasing goods. Thus it eliminates the need of a PayPal account for purchasing of goods and services online. Beside all these benefits, you will find a brilliant customer support at Payoneer.
Payza: Payza, once it was AlertPay, is yet another cool service almost similar to PayPal. Its money transfer mechanism is similar to that of PayPal but the goodness of Payza is, it is much cheaper than PayPal as well as operates across the globe.
When you sign up at Payza and complete their requirements to create a verified account, then you can request a Visa® prepaid card which can be used to shop online or for withdrawing money from your account. Recently, Payza was going through an upgrade process due to which many Payza customers faced delays in their transactions. But now, everything is fine and Payza is back with its brilliant services.
Skrill: Skrill, which was known as MoneyBookers previously, is yet another great alternative to PayPal but I found the support from Skrill a little poorer. At Skrill, the mechanism of transactions is similar to that of PayPal. If PayPal isn’t available in your country or if you have been annoyed by PayPal too much, then Skrill can help you in sending and receiving money at fair prices.
Western Union: Western Union Quick Cash is yet another alternative to PayPal which can be used for sending and receiving money across the globe. The badness of WU is, you need to go to any WU agent for sending or receiving the money. In addition, prices at WU are a little high as compared to other money transfer services, still WU can solve your issues if you haven’t got any solution for online transactions beside PayPal, Payoneer, Payza and Skrill.
In most Asian countries, Google AdSense pays the earnings of its publishers through Western Union. It reveals that WU is serving across the globe and will serve you too if PayPal is reluctant to operate in your area.
Google Wallet: Google Wallet is yet another secure way for paying online with a credit or debit card. At many unauthentic online stores, it isn’t wise to use a debit or credit card for making purchases and Google Wallet allows you to pay securely by linking your debit or credit card to its secure service. Your credit or debit card information will never leak out when you will use Google Wallet for online shopping at supported stores.
This was the list of top 5 PayPal alternatives for sending and receiving money as well as for making online purchases. I hope you will find these services useful and helping.
