Paypal.com Jan 13, 2005

Founded in 1998, PayPal, an eBay Company, enables any individual or business with an email address to securely, easily and quickly send and receive payments online. PayPal's service builds on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards and utilizes the world's most advanced proprietary fraud prevention systems to create a safe, global, real-time payment solution.

PayPal has quickly become a global leader in online payment solutions with 56 million account members worldwide. Available in 45 countries around the world, buyers and sellers on eBay, online retailers, online businesses, as well as traditional offline businesses are transacting with PayPal.

PayPal has received close to 20 awards for technical excellence from the Internet industry and the business community at large -most recently the 2003 Webby Award for Best Finance Site and the 2003 Webby People's Voice Award for Best Finance Site.

Located in San Jose, California, PayPal was acquired by eBay Inc. in October, 2002.

And is it safe? Well, I've been using it for quite a while and never experienced any problems.

The same applies to www.moneybookers.com

If you are in China, don't use Paypal. Jan 13, 2005

Since the money can not be encashed in China, you can only use the money to buy items online.
I recommend you get money through wire transfer.

Paypal doesn't work in Eastern Europe, too, but Moneybookers.com does.
It's much the same and my experience up yo now with small sums (not exceeding few hundred EUR, are fully positive.

Paypal doesn't work in Peru either..! Jan 15, 2005

This seems to be a very extended paying method over the world. Unfortunately, -as it is the case in Argentina- it doesn't work in Peru either.
