    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.
