What is the best / easiest way to be paid without using paypal for someone living the in US? I have had more problems with paypal than I would like and would rather use something like a direct transfer. Is this possible, or is there some other method that would be easier?

Yeah.. I’m asking if anyone (in the US) has used any of the alternatives you listed there, and if there was any trouble with them.

I am always using the SWIFT transfer and everything is OK. If it works for a small country like Bulgaria, I can’t see a reason for a problems in the USA .

What are the SWIFT fees like? You get charged twice, right?

I heard that some banks take a fee when you receive foreign payments, I use the SWIFT transfert since a few months and it looks like I don’t pay anything additional on my side.

I suggest Payoneer.

PayPal is like: “phone call, rant, phone call, month quiet, phone call, rant, ban, quiet”.

Moneybookers is like: “send us this document, phone call, send us that document, phone call, your documents have expired so upload a new ones, phone call, please increase my limit – please give us more proof documents, rant, hackers, quiet”

Payoneer is like: “here is your card, cheers”.

P.S: Don’t try to compare the fees, just select the service you like because you will pay everywhere roughly the same.

It costs money to send a wire transfer and to receive, I just assumed Envato passes the fee to send along to you. My bank charges $35-45 to send and $12-16 to receive.
