Hi everyone!

A few days ago I saw this post, which mentions HooPay, a money-wire system apparently similar to Xoom that I hadn't heard of before: http://www.proz.com/forum/spanish/99545-¿alguien_usa_ikobo_para_recibir_pagos_internacionales_en_argentina_¿funciona.html#1114105

I would appreciate it immensely if someone who's used this system could tell me (us) more about it. I visited the site (www.hoopay.com) but couldn't find the info on how it works exactly. Is the money transfered to a bank account? Is it wired though associated companies, like Xoom?

And, most importantly: is it safe?

Thanks a millionicon_smile.gif

Are you crazy ?! May 8, 2009


Even if it's secure would you really consider a withdrawal fee of 24€ ?!

While moneybokeers and other systems charge you less ?

Best regards,

Please don't forget that fees usually differ from one country to another, and that not all systems are available in all countries. There may also be associated "unofficial" costs to some services.

Regardless, it doesn't hurt to learn about new systems even if we choose not to use them for whatever reason(s). What may end up being useless to me (or whomever) might come in handy for someone else at some point.

Please do not sign up Hoopay.com now! May 15, 2009

hi guys

before you sign up with hoopay, please check to make sure that this service is here to stay.

I can see that hoopay.com tiptop security features and all that.. they are using a ssl cert that is more expansive than average as well .. BUT see the two links below and compare it with Liberty Reserve website ...



you can tell who is more serious in business !

Forget about the traffic and ranking of both website and all that.. just look at the domain expiry date!

does not make any sense to me that being a online business... they would have missed this ???

Hoopay are new by the way.. started on the Jan09.

Wait a while more before you sign up for it.
