Hi, friends!
I have this question, a customer in USA wants to send me payment, but he wants to use Paypal or MoneyBrokers. Have you ever received payments through these media? I´m asking because when reading Paypal site, it is said that people in ARgentina "many not receive the money"
I wait for your news

Most people report few problems but... Nov 20, 2003

I´ve used them for three small payments. I had to submit faxed info about my account and things seemed to work but the last payment I received is frozen because they limited my account access without any reason (which means I can´t move my money from PayPal to my bank account) and they have given no indication about how to restore access. Their customer service is dismal... All you get are automatic e-mail replies to your questions. I would not use them for large amounts, and I´m seriously tempted never to use them again. I have a Moneybookers account but I´ve never used it. However, after this PayPal experience, I think I´m going to give it a try.

Thanks! Nov 21, 2003

Thanks for your answer Miguel!
Though your answer was great, I´m still waiting for other proZ members´answers as perhaps there are other ways of payments we are not taking into account. Of course, I´m not talking about cheques or wire transfers...
Still waiting

Try Western Union Nov 21, 2003

Y sigo en castellano porque el inglés no es mi fuerte.
Para pequeños montos (hasta u$s 1000) yo les pido a mis clientes que utilicen Western Union.
Es el método más económico (por u$s 200 la comisión es aprox u$s 15) y no tengo que pagar nada al recibir, y en efectivo.
En España lo gestiona el Correo como en Argentina y en EEUU está lleno de agencias.
En Japón lo trata una cadena de bancos.
El único problema es que para el cliente la gestión lo tiene que hacer una persona en particular y si son grandes empresas a veces se niegan a modificar sus métodos de pago...
