Paypal and Moneybookers now have competition
This classification includes various online payments services like Paypal and Skrill (formerly Moneybookers). In recent years these sites tend to multiply although the market is highly dominated by Paypal, particularly in Europe.
Warning, if these sites are like banks, are not, no savings plan is offered, so do not confuse with an online bank.
Profits from these sites must be reported to SCIF in your country of residence.
This list has more worth listing as comparative as the comparison criteria are many, however, it happened in the past that high-use payment services pass the dark side of the force, as in the crash of LibertyReserve in 2013. Be vigilant and do not store them too much money, or too long.
If you have accounts in several of these sites and you want to make a transfer from one to the other, see our exchangers listing.
