Cari colleghi,
Un mio cliente mi chiede se voglio provare a usare Moneybookers per i pagamenti. Dice di averlo usato con altri traduttori e di aver avuto un'esperienza positiva. Qualcuno usa questo sistema?
Grazie
Laura

Sì, l'ho usato io recentemente... Jul 23, 2003

ma in Gran Bretagna, quindi non posso dirti se le modalità di ricevimento dei soldi siano le stesse. Comunque, ha funzionato alla perfezione. Quando il cliente ti invia i soldi, se sei già registrato, fai il login e viene visualizzato l'ammontare dovuto. Puoi versare i soldi sul tuo conto corrente o farti mandare un assegno (almeno qui). Mi sembra che le commissioni siano inferiori a quelle praticate da PayPal.

Grazie, Giovanni Jul 23, 2003

Sembra che funzioni anche in Italia. Curiosamente, oggi ben due clienti mi hanno chiesto di usare questo sistema!
Ciao
Laura

Moneybookers.com

There have been numerous questions about this relatively new service on various lists. So, last night, I finally found the time to test it myself.

I will not bore you with too many details, but suffice it to say that PayPal is still No. 1 in all respects.

Here's a quick summary of Moneybookers:

1.. It is not available everywhere (its reach is even smaller than that of PayPal).
2.. They want you to supply them with all the "tools" they need to commit fraud: in order to add a credit card to your account, you have to provide them with copies (or, as they put it, preferably scans!!!) of a valid photo ID, the front and back of your credit card and a SIGNED credit-card statement. Sorry, but anyone who thinks that Moneybookers is a legit business should have their brain examined.
3.. Having clients pay by credit card through your website: now, this works extremely well with PayPal. In Moneybookers' case, it is the client that pays all the fees (good luck convincing any clients to use that method of payment) and the payer has to provide his/her cell phone number, so that Moneybookers can verify the transaction details. What if your client does not have a cell phone or what if the phone is off (battery down, etc.)?

In short, a highly dubious outfit with even more dubious practices. I'd stay away if I were you.

Questo e' solo un parere... e neppure molto autorevole Jul 24, 2003

Paola,
il commento che hai riportato, e altri pareri contrari, sono stati inviati oggi ad una mailing list.

Non credo sia giusto riportare solo una versione dei fatti (o opinioni, o fantasie) senza riportare anche le altre.

Di fatto, Moneybookers e Paypal operano con modalita' simili, hanno entrambi vantaggi e svantaggi, entrambi sono disponibili in alcuni paesi e non in altri, e non credo che utilizzare o evitarli sia una questione di follia o sanita' mentale, come dichiarato (con stile inimitabile) dalla persona riportato qui sopra da Paola.

Gianfranco

quanto ci costa? Dec 7, 2003

Anche a me hanno consigliato di utilizzare questo servizio e di consultare il sito relativo, ma non ho capito bene quanto viene a costare al traduttore che "riceve" il pagamento. è davvero FREE come dicono?

Stefano
