Well first of all alertPay is not an e-currency but an payment processor.

You can find a nice presentation of alertpay on this alertpay blog

What is AlertPay ?!

AlertPay is an internet payment service allowing you to send and receive money online securely and quickly. You never need to expose your credit card information or bank information to unknown merchants online again. Protect yourself from Identity Theft by protecting your personal and financial details from falling into the wrong hands.

How does AlertPay work?

Your AlertPay account is a safe place to hold funds until you’re ready to use them. There is not required to maintain a minimum balance and is FREE to open an account. You can add funds to your account through numerous financing methods like Credit Card,Bank transfer and you can withdraw funds from your account to check,bank account or E-gold.

You can send money to others for FREE and the beneficiary pays only a small service fee for receiving funds.

There are 3 types of account:

* Personal Account: You can only receive up to a maximum of $400 per month and $2000 per year. There is ONLY a $1 fee when you receive money

* Premium Account: There are no receiving limits. You will have access to features like: Mass Pay, Integration tools and website payment methods. Receiving fees is 2.5% + $0.25 per transaction. (If you are receiving many payments that are each less than $30 then you should choose this one)

* Secured Account: Same features as the premium account but with additional security. Suitable for “risky” businesses like PTC, MLM, HYP, Adult. Receiving fee is 3.9% + $0.59 per transaction.

You can withdraw money in the following ways

- Bank Transfer (USA, Canada and Europe) ($0.50 per transaction)

- Check (International) ($2.00 per check)

- E-gold (will vary and you need to have a verified account)


Really HUGE things are going to happen SOON. Stay tuned !!!

In my opinion, I think it is better for you to have you money in LR first, then transfer your money to alertpay thru goldexpay.com. Make sure that your LR money is in EUR so that it will convert it to USD paypal in greater value. Try it. It will give you a higher value in Alertpay in USD.

@pjbabia

Oh really? I didn't know this trick, so we used LibertyReserve with currency EUR and then convert it to AlertPay in USD. But why did you convert it directly to exchanger from LR exchanger friend? If we exchanged it to AlertPay first, it will be reduced with some fees right?

I'm sorry, I'm quire confusing here. Let me figure it with simple scheme:

LR(EUR) --> AP(EUR) --> PP(USD) --> AP(USD)

Is it what you mean?

I have used AlertPay a lot, they are good. Unlike many others, which are a pain sometimes.

Yeah I've used them a lot also. Its only me or do I have the feeling that know they are a big brand and are competing with paypal they tend to get rid of HYIP, MLM and PTC programs?!. Coz more and more programs are announcing their ALP accounts is blocked or frozen

Well, it seems it is not as big as PayPal, But comparable to MoneyBookers.

The main reason of their success to me is, that they don't block as many accounts as paypal, and won't ask as many verification methods as moneybookers do.

Also , unlike paypal they accept membership from almost any country on the planet besides the ones that are forbidden by different internation barriers (countries suspected to finance terrorism or drugs money laundering etc). PayPal is not in China, PayPal is not in Russia, PayPal is not in ex YU countries and since few months ago PayPal is not in India (withdrawls) anymore. AlertPay is managed quite well so they have all the reasons to establish themselves right in the paypal's sholder.

I use both paypal and alertpay and I find them very useful. I heard of a guy getting his alertpay account hacked. Do you think he was careless in some way? Is it cheaper to use paypal or alertpay does anyone know. thanks

To answer your question, yes alertpay accounts can be hacked as all other accounts. The causes are multiple.. compromised email, compromised computer ,shared passwords etc etc. But AlertPay have a nice feature called Secundary PIN. Whitout knowing that no one can send/steal funds from your account so make sure you keep that in a safe place. Also If funds have been unauthorized taken from your acount contact AlertPay and they will reverse the transaction. So speaking about security I find it quite good on AlertPay. not perfect but....good

Paypal, Alertpay, moneybookers, Plimus, Multicards (least recommended) are all payments procesors.

Webmoney, it is e-currency, like liberty reserved, egold.

Is there a post about Webmoney? how many people uses it? from which country? from which country do they get paid?

PayPal is bust but PayPal not support some country. According to my suggestion Alertpay is the best :)

That is your opinion but I think for most people PP remain the world number one e-currency since there have much more advance by using PP than other e-currency. AP has few problem later especially for HYIP investors.

I have been using AP for quite awhile and find it very handy. I have also won all disputes I have filed against scamming online programs. But I have to admit that I have not recovered all money involve because from my vantage point AP is quite slow in taking action on disputes and thereby giving enough time for scammers to move the money in dispute out.

If it could implement a way of freezing just the amount in dispute the moment they receive a valid claim against the account holder, then, it would be great for me. Right now, it is sometimes pointless to file a dispute when all you get in the end is a "we are sorry" message that they failed to recover anything.

Another thing they need to resolve fast is their CC withdrawal option.

But other than those two observations/suggestions I pointed out above, AP great to use in all programs accepting it.

Lately I've started to use PayPal heavy so I finally have the chance to compare all the similarities and discrepancies of this 2 payment processors. AlertPay even they started business way after PayPal managed to get a lot of notoriety lately and introduced great features like API, own debit card, fraud prevention etc.

asahero is nice to see you are quite good with AP disputes and manage to get some of the money back. AlertPay is doing way more than PayPal on this. PayPal simply allows a lot of time to pass till they actually start an investigation so the scammer have plenty of time to withdraw all the funds. So hands up for AlertPay.

In filing disputes, especially with Alertpay, the first thing you have to show the resolution department is that you have exercise "due diligence" in your transactions. Meaning, you have read the terms and followed them; that you have initiated an effort to reach out to the merchant first to settle your problem; and most of all you have a strong argument and proof to back up your claim.

Status report: VISA and MasterCard processing

--Update: As of today, November 18, 2011, there has been no change to the status reported below. We hope to have good news to share next week. Stay tuned for weekly updates.--

Although VISA and MasterCard processing will not be available as soon as we predicted, we are ensuring that when the service is operational there will be no issues or service disruptions. This week, our team has been devoted to exploring the terms of our new partnerships with leading payment processors. Negotiations are ongoing, but rest assured, progress is being made. The fact of the matter is that we are committed to doing things right and resolving things once and for all.

Visa and MasterCard plastic cards still can not be used on AlertPay :angry: :angry:

Looks as I will be moving on from AlertPay for now :angry:

AlertPay Update American Express credit card temporarily unavailable

Status update: credit card processing temporarily unavailable

Thats really annyoing I dont know why this happens but every 1-2 years they have to switch their processing credit cards merchant. I suppose this is because they are processing adult adn pills payments and this industries are quite buggy I may say.

Anyway I've been selected in the debitcard program so I shoudl get mine soon :)
