i think ikobo will work well. if paypal works great, then ikobo also. remember, mylot will not choose it if is not working well. it's the counterpart of paypal.

I have only used PayPal, but started looking into iKobo today with all of the questions. It seems like iKobo works anywhere. It is much cheaper than Western Union and the user does not have a lot of fees. By going to the following link, you can see all of the countires iKobo services: http://ikobo.com/country-pages.html

hello, sunny days. i had to sign up for an ikobo account, too, and even though i haven't reach the pay-out mark yet of $10., i'd like your opinion on how i'd be able to receive my eventual payments?

I guess Ikobo works well with any non-paypal holders but I haven't signed-up. My concern is the fees charged for their services. quite high for non-US dollar earners like me.

Why do the fees seem high? The majority of the fees are incured by the sender. The user only incurs fees if they take money out of an ATM (form iKobo and any ATM fees). So if you use your card to buy gas or groceries (direct purchases), then you don't incur a service fee. Are there other fees besides these?

Hi! sorry for my late reply. I am not really familiar with ikobo or any payment methods since I have not purchased online and never received anything online. but I have read in ikobo's website that you have to pay about (or is it more than) $10 dollars if money is to be sent to you. for non-dollar earners like me that is quite high really. So my question is, how do we receive the money if we can not pay the service charge? or do we have to wait for our earnings to increase to be able to pay? does Ikobo take the fees from our mylot earnings or do we have to pay them using other methods online?? Hope anyone could explain.

Same here. I dont think I'll try iKobo though. I'm too used to PayPal, plus a lot of companies use it so its better.

I am not familiar with Ikobo and want to use paypal since I have a paypal account that I used when I was in the U.S. My problem is when I go to my profile page it doesn't offer me paypal since I now live in a third world country. I also am concerned that ikobo charges large fees.
