Other Payment Options to Paypal

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

For payments being sent to me, I'm not comfortable giving out my account numbers publicly.

For payments being sent to others, I would not have the time to manually transfer funds to individual people using my personal ID.

In addition to those problems, it would be much harder if not impossible to setup the automatic processing of payments being sent or reviewed.

I think what we would need is a similar service to PayPal.
Payoneer is an option that's similar to Paypal.

Or Paytm.?
When people say you've changed, it just means that you have stopped living your life, their way.

I'm having a similar problem, can't open a PayPal account because it only specifies states in the U. S, at least, that's what appeared on my phone... And I'm in Nigeria, could we add Western Union as a substitute for such cases?

There are plans to add an alternative. :tiphat:
If we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

We've all got light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.
