  • Paypal alternative

    In a couple of weeks paypal is going to change it's policies and any payment sent to me will automatically be transferred into my Mexican bank account. That means more fees and more fees if I were to send it back to you guys in USD or other currencies.

    So, I'm looking again for alternatives. Most important thing: a) they must allow international transactions, b) they need to be cheaper than paypal.

    The one I'm looking at right now is TransferWise. Anyone heard of it?

        I use transferwise to move money between my English and Spanish accounts, it's easy and fees are quite low.

          Perfect, thanks. That might be the way to go.

                  I can do Venmo. But if there's something else, let me know where to sign up

                      Venmo is owned by PayPal. So I assume any problems with one would exist in the other.

                      Let me know if you guys need me to do anything.

                            I guess as part of this new policy, they're charging $4.99 to send to some countries/currencies, so those of you overseas (and in Canada, it appears,) will have $4.99 deducted from the sending amount. Example below.
