    Everyone tired of getting hit with fees for paypal transactions? New player in town. I read about this on another forum (read that post here). It sounds like it'll make a pretty good alternative, and they have some pretty good incentives for signing up/referrals (like they'll give you 25 bucks)

    Site: www.revolutionmoney.com

    And check out the people running the company...I tend to think these guys know what they're doing.

    Anyway, just a tip for anyone interested in checking it out. I haven't signed up yet (I'm on a work network) but will be soon. Check it out.

    I shop a lot on buy.com, using google checkout will usually give you a pretty good deal on your first purchase...

    A big difference, from what i can see, is that you dont have to be a US citizen with Paypal, where as this, you do....I may of missed something that says otherwise, but, could not see anything which is for UK citizens, for example....

    What i do think is good is more companies emerging on the market to compete against Paypal....

    Right, its relatively new, and so far only available to the US. It will only be a matter of time before it goes global I'm sure, if it works here.

    BTW, for what it's worth, yesterday, when I cut and pasted the referral link directly, it showed up fine in "preview post" and was clickable.

    Can we please ensure that this is not used throughout the forum in posts and signatures as this is effectivly spam advertising as per the Terms of Service (TOS) we all agreed upon when joining Aquaria Central. Concerning this issue, please remember that text in posts and / or signatures like "Join Us/Me here" and "Come and visit ...... " et cetra are not to be used. If you require something such as a link to an external source, then it does need to be cleared via the site admin if its not just linking to an info source / webpage but requires the member to sign up to use a service or source, as again, this is classed as spam.

    If you want to use this as a method of payment when creating a thread in the classifieds, then simply add a text based link, not picture, in the initial post in the classifieds section please.

    Please keep discussion of this subject to this thread...

    Thanks for your co-operation on this..
