Online shopping and online purchases have grown into something so important in many of our lives that it’s strange, at least for me, to think of a world where it doesn’t exist. PayPal is one service that really pioneered that world, especially in terms of purchasing without needing a credit card, debit card, or gift card. But are there any viable alternatives if you don’t like PayPal?
The PayPal versus BitTorrent battle always plays out in my mind like a Wild West showdown: “We don’t want your kind in our town,” PayPal says as he raises his gun. Women scream, men hide, and children crawl under the bed. Without going into too much detail, BitTorrent is a basic peer to peer sharing platform that many sites like MediaFire, TorGuard, Depositfiles, PutLocker, and TorrentBytes are affiliated with.
Skrill, known in another life as Moneybookers, advertises fees and commissions that are often much lower than PayPal’s. Their services very often trump PayPal’s but at what cost?
