AlertPay vs PayPal for PTC?

United States
May 7, 2009 9:27pm CST
If you are a PTCer, like myself, then you most likely have an AlterPay and a PayPal account. In this discussion, I would like to know what some of our experiences are with these two payout options, and have us vote for the payment option most popular. I have an AlterPay account, but haven't had to use it yet. Can some of you who have used AlertPay give some insight. Is it trustworthy? Easy to use? I have not had any troubles with PayPal. So, for now, PayPal has my vote for most popular!

I use both of them and haven't had any trouble with them. Although I would always opt for pay pal instead of alert pay. The one thing I don't like about alert pay is that you can't automatically deposit funds. You have to go to your bank and send a money order so that you get it in your account. Unlike paypal everything is done automatically and your details are secure and its the easiest way to shop, pay online. So paypal too gets my vote over alert pay

How hard is it to get your money FROM AlertPay? Do you have to give bank account info?

On some radio discussion, people talk about the monopoly of paypal in most web transactions. It became worldwide, and it become mostly used device for people doing the transactions globally, and domestically. I personally prefer paypal too. Just like you, I have absolute no experience with alertpay or other device.

only paypal for me. it's user-friendly and professional looking.it's been tested to be legit.it's reliable and credible. i signed to alertpay but never got around to try its services because i am satisfied with the way paypal handles my small money online. i can't ask for more. my paypal withdrawals are always a breeze. if other online money handler can do things better than paypal does, i may think of switching to it. but so far, none has come out to be better than paypal. so i stick with it.

Thanks for the understanding. You're a gem! :-) Btw, my vote goes to paypal. Safe, easy, convenient and reliable. I'm sure there aren't too many denials for this.

I haven't tried Alert pay as yet. I have been using Paypal for a long time and find it trustworthy. So I don't think I will switch to Alertpay. Most of the sites accept Paypal. I make it a point to join sites that pay via paypal. And so far, so good.

I wondered if we could get our money from AlertPay without having to add all that extra account information. I'm just nervous about that part...

I've never tried AlertPay, but then I am very happy with PayPal. It even lets me make a direct deposit into my bank account. The transfer takes less than 24 hours.
