I would like to know if any of you have experience in sending money or being paid using this site? Is Mercado Pago very similar to PayPal? Can you use their system even if I am in the UK? I have been reading their website but I am a bit confused.... they always mention Mercado Libre (a site who they are linked to).... can you only use Mercado Pago if you buy something from Mercado Libre? I want to send money to a Mexican colleague, but not sure if possible and if it is a serious site.

Any experience will be welcome.

Mercado Pago is totally reliable but only for payng articles acquired. Not to send money.
Use PayPal.
