I have been a PayPal user for almost five years, and I love it to the core. When I was starting out online, I had no idea how to receive money from people outside of my own country, and PayPal made it so easy to receive money from these foreign country transactions. In my homeland (India) due to PayPal and RBI disputes, I can no longer use PayPal the same as other users from countries like the U.S.A, the U.K., and Australia. For example, one Indian PayPal user cannot send or receive money from another Indian PayPal user. This is just one big limitation of PayPal. So I started digging around to find some of the best alternative sites to PayPal. There are many sites that are similar to PayPal with more or fewer features. I will list some of the best money transfer sites which I have found while searching for an alternative method to receiving payments. If you know of any others feel free to suggest via the comments. Note: This article was updated on 18th December 2017 … [Read more...] about Top 6 Paypal Alternatives For Bloggers and FreeLancers
