well, i admit i'm really ignorant about these things.
it seems that PayPal is not available in Egypt!
So i'd like to know what other 'secure' ways of payment would be.
I happened to be about making a deal, and everytime the problem was
"payment". HELP please!

Paypal is not available in Iran as well.

I normally use moneybookers.com or wire transfer for my invoices.

Hi! Moneybookers is a good alternative and they charge the payer some 5% and as reciever you pay nothing, compared to paypal charging 10% on total sum.

hope that helps
brandis

there are others but come only on larger sums transfers. I shall get back with the informaton.

[Edited at 2004-01-31 02:51]Hi!
here are other 2 alternatives 1) snail mail check ( for large sums ) and Western Union (for large and personal delivery). Or talk to your bank directly.
Hope that helps.
