All,

I have just posted a web survey asking what people think about the various payment services (PayPal, Moneybookers, etc.).

Please take a moment to let us know what you think about these services. Do they work well for you? Is one better than the other? What do you like or dislike about either of them?

Thanks - your feedback is important to us, and a great help in our future planning.

Best regards,

Never mind then.

Cookies Jul 1, 2008

My cookies are turned on (I automatically log into sites like this one and others) but after taking the time to enter my answers, I get the message "Cookies must be turned on to complete this survey".

I guess your cookies are not sweet enough for my computer's taste.

I like them... Jul 1, 2008

because they speed up payments. Just think how it was 20 years ago through banks. although I have a Moneybookers account and I am able to use it, I've been using my Paypal account due to its user-friendly interface. It's a great tool not only for translators!

What do you think of cookies? Jul 1, 2008

I have cookies enabled for this site, but my survey response was rejected for not accepting cookies. Could it be that the corresponding cookies are not from Proz, but from a funky third party (like PayPal)?

Survey bugs fixed Jul 1, 2008

All,

Sorry about the initial confusion on the survey - a setting to require cookies was originally turned on. This has been turned off, and all questions have been set to "optional". In addition, the survey has be modified to be open to all users.

Please let me know if there are any other issues.

Regards,

Andre

PayPal - like it or dislike it but still need it Jul 2, 2008

No cookies problems with me

Well, my biggest reason for dislike it is their currency conversion. Normally, today US$ 1 is equal to IDR 9200-9300. PayPal thinks it's "enough" to pay us IDR 8.900 for US$ 1.

Very much annoying, but still got no other better option for online payment service.
