So far, I had a symbol on my profile page for ProZ Wallet payments. Now there isn\'t.

How do clients make ProZ payments to a ProZ member?

Have a look at FAQ 16; this was also discussed in www.proz.com/?sp=bb/viewtopic&post=57578#57578 and www.proz.com/?sp=bb/viewtopic&post=53816#53816

Using any of the other alternatives available: bank transfer, cheque, credit card, alternative payment systems (Paypal etc.).



HTH - best regards, Ralf

Just My Opinion re the Wallet Disappearing Apr 30, 2003

It’s really sad that the Wallet is no longer available.



Dear Henry, I can well understand your emotions in the situation when you had to compensate on your own the misuse of the system, but please let me have a different opinion on this.

To prevent abuse of this service, instead of its withdrawal, why not

A) Increase the security of the Wallet, or

B) Implement a third-party solution?



I had a chance to use the Wallet only once, but I really find it invaluable for payments between colleagues and receiving payments from Western companies by non-Western ones. I think people in the better-off countries largely underestimate the value of this service for translators in disadvantaged parts of the world, where there is no PayPal, no anything.



By the way, with disappearing of the Wallet, I have also lost my 18 bucks: I cannot withdraw it, because this would cost me more than $18, nor can I use it to pay Platinum membership, because I can only $20, $30 or $60 and neither way helps me to actually use this pitiful amount. This is what I have to pay for the misuse mentioned. As well as many others, I guess. But then, this is no concern for me compared to the reasons mentioned above.



And the last thing, I am not happy about is that there has been no notification of the service withdrawal. I have listed this service as a payment option on all my invoices, and was in the process of negotiating with a client of mine to use it as a substitute for cheques (totally unacceptable option for Russian-based, for example, translators).



This is just what I, for one, think.
