Could someone please tell me about alertpay? I have heard good and bad things about it. I signed up and to get verified they wanted picture id which I dont feel comfortable doing online. Just want to know if anyone has dealt with this pay service and if they really are reliable.

Both Alertpay and Paypal have their positives and negatives. Unfortunately, if you're out to make money online, you will notice that many sites use either one as a payment option. I have a verified account and have submitted my ID, bank statement to get it verified. They were slow to process so I had to send a support ticket to get verified since the verification time process had already lapsed. Anyway, between Alertpay and Paypal, in my experience, paypal people are rude. Alertpay staff seem to be nicer.

Yes this is why I asked. I have came across one site that only accepted alertpay. With all the scam out there just wanted to make sure it wasnt a scam. And also knew mylot would be the place to find out. Thanks for the comment.

Youre most welcome. I would suggest, however, that you sign up for both paypal and alertpay. The fees and charges depend on your country of origin so just have a look at the best rate for you as well :-) Cheers.

Hi Vampy. I know their verification method is really odd. But all i can say that alertpay are really reliable. They are very renound online. But the best alternative to Alertpay is Paypal , you can also try that instead, their verification is through a credit/debit card. Instant verification can be done there and then you can avail all benefits.

Hey thanks for the comment. I have paypal and so far no complaints what so ever. Someone had mentioned how people were sending emails that looked like a scam to them from alertpay. I guess it is just a good company getting a bad rep because of greedy people who have nothing better to do than try to take peoples money.
