There is a business opp that I want to invest in (only $25) and I have to set up an account with Alertpay. I'm not quite familiar with how they work because I use paypal. I recall a few years ago I thought about opening an account with both, but chose to only do paypal because it was most popular. What are the differences between the two? What are the positive and negative of Alertpay compared to Paypal? I guess if I really want to do the opportunity I will have to use the Alertpay, but I don't want to go into it in the blind. I will be forever grateful for any and all feedback that I can get from those who use both or only Alertpay.

If you have a personal AlertPay account you dont have to pay any fees to recieve money :) But ofcause only until a certain amount. AlertPay have more or less the same features as PayPal, but less strict when it comes to verification and other stuff, they require less information from you if they limit your account. I consider AlertPay pretty easy to use and very secure, they also have the opportunity for chargebacks like PayPal.

This is where statistics come into play. So far four people have responded and 3 out of 4 prefer paypal. I like the idea of no fees, however what is the limit for that? And, why is that? Shouldn't that make "us" the consumer leary? They don't want much information, shouldn't that make "us" leary? I'm just asking. I'm just trying to get an understanding of this Alertpay. Like a previous person stated, 98% of anything online accepts Paypal. Heck, I can even go to Wal-mart, CVS, or Walgreens and add money to my paypal account. And not to mention you can get a debit card from Paypal to get your money right away. So, due to all of these perks, does it or should it really matter if you have to pay a few little fees?

You can recieve up to $2000 free to your AlertPay account, but which of them i prefeer then I guess I would say PayPal in the longer run as most accept PayPal. But then AlertPay is available in some countries where PayPal withdrawals are not possible.

I like paypal most coz your account is safe there. I had just experienced being scammed by an EMS senior member for offering an investment yet it turned out he did not pay us 60 members who invested in him. I used my paypal and alertpay funds to invest in him but only with paypal I was able to get my money back coz I opened a dispute against him through paypal's resolution center. I usually request payouts with my paypal but recently I got interested in investing my money through HYIP's. But paypal doesn't offer this payment feature to these HYIP's as they are a risk to anyone. So if you would want to invest with that site who uses only AP, you better open an account there but make sure you are careful where you invest your money. Don't forget to "invest only what you can risk", as they commonly say.
