When alternative payment systems are available, they are usually faster, cheaper Sep 4, 2002

Our payment service is a rather informal offering, something we started on behalf of platinum members who did not have other options for receiving small payments.



You should know that when there are complications (various have arisen), it can take even weeks for a transfer to be made. And payments are usually small enough that we may collect several requests before going to the bank to make them. So use the service only if you are not in a hurry.



On the plus side, the ProZ.com payment service is comparatively easy for clients to use. They can pay by various methods, and they don\'t have to register with us (unlike paypal). Also, for small amounts, it beats wire transfer fees.



As for safety and privacy, we have taken all necessary precautions. Credit cards are handled by a third party, one of the largest credit card clearing organizations in the US, and your wallet history is visible to you only.

we are using proz.com for very small payments Sep 5, 2002

Thank you for interesting comments.

We use proz.com to receive very small payments.

So far it is the only way we see to receive such amounts.

We do not have any problems to cash out wire transfer or Cheque we receive.

Cashing out a Cheque in our city usually takes about month of time (the bank sends it back to USA) and $30 fee. The process is reliable though. So it is reasonable to use it only for amounts staring with $200 and higher.

Using proz.com wallet would solve many problems with small payments because of the above.

We could collect those rare and small payments and then use a Cheque or wire transfer to receive the money.
