Is moneybookers any good? I noticed they dont use % to cut your money, instead they have a flat rate which seems way better than paypal.
No, that’s just as bad and it is easy for people to scam you ;) I’m sure many people use it though, but it is dodgy & not worth the risk IMO :P Checkout google on it “moneybooker scams”

Moneybookers do have an Escrow facility, but it is all geared towards ‘buyer protection’ and there is still an inspection period of 14 days when the buyer can check out the merchandise to see if they’re happy and there is still a risk of a chargeback.

Registering as a merchant affords a seller more protection and there is no charge back risk for merchants. (but I think you need to have a site that you sell from?).

So far the best online payment system I’ve used is Payoneer.

No, I do not mind, I told the customer politely that I have offered services and would like to get paid for them, because I didn’t do anything to offend him. He received a the working fix he requested. Told him if I am not contacted back in 48 hours I will take legal action against him :)

The whole problem seams to be a double account, he had one that was closed and one active,he sent from the closed one, I do not know what to believe, what I know is that my problem has been fixed, and was very polite and fast in fixing it once he contacted me :P

Thanks for keeping my moral up guys….thanks a million…

By the way, We should post a forum topic of ENVATO ’s not to offer freelance services too, because many of us have been scammed in in the past :)

Best regards friends.

edit: special thanks to TNL3542 for a big favor :)
