    Paypal sucks? A successful product sure have tons of followers, and also tons of haters.

    Paypal got 150 Million Account, tell me if 1% of ppl hate them, it's 1.5 million ppl queuing up to trash them!

    How about speak up your thought on paypal by answer these 2 simple questions and probably walk away with a mini rewards?

    Malaysia has the no 1 credit card fraud in the world.

    1. Paypal really isnt for Malaysian. Cant withdraw fund from Malaysian Bank. The money only stays in Paypal

    2. Processing Fee is high

    3. Withdrawal incurred additional fee (Hidden fee)

    4. Wire Transfer is another fee.

    What is left over?

    You can withdraw using visa debit card or Visa credit card now. No issue to that. Try search this forum post on this issue and you find the solutions.

    If you compare the processing fee with the local payment processor like ipay88 and commercePayment.. Paypal is a sure Winner.. hands down no argument.

    Other than the per transaction fees. The local processor have monthly fees + yearly fees + setup fees + withdrawal period limit(sometimes more than 3mths before you can withdraw) But paypal have none.

    where got hidden fees?? It stated clearly that Paypal will charge $5 per widthdrawal. No other charges there after.

    If you do a wire transfer.. the wire charges is from the bank... so paypal will charge the amount back to you.
    If you don't believe, try go to the bank and ask what the fees involve in sending out an Wire Transfer.
    Anyway, malaysian acc cannot do wire transfer.

    Newcomer here,

    I have done some comparison between paypal & ipay88, below are some of my findout.

    Paypal:
    - No registration fee
    - Expensive rate (3.9% + US0.30) per trasnaction if monthly volume less than USD3000. (after withdraw throught local bank e-debit, add extra 2% conversion from USD to RM and + withdrawal fees). So end up the transaction fees is around 6-8%
    - very strict, fund may get freeze due to customer complaints


    iPay88:
    - Registration fees (RM488 1 time) + monthly maintenance fees (RM68)
    - transaction fees 3% (no hidden cost and no withdrawal fees)


    So if you do the match,

    if your monthly transaction volume is RM2000

    Paypal cost = 2000 x 7% (average) = RM140
    iPay88 cost = 2000 x 3% + RM68 = RM128

    Anyway, both has its own pros and cons

    Paypal
    Pro : Oversea market
    No setup fees
    Support multi-currency

    Con : Tedious in withdral fund
    no online banking (if also want to sell to malaysia)
    High Transaction fees


    iPay88
    Pro : Provide comprehensive payment list (Credit card, 8 online banks, 4 e-wallet, China Unionpay)
    Low transaction fees

    Con : Monthly maintenance fees + setup fees
    not support multi-currency (but heard soon)


    Anybody can add more??

    just to add something very important.

    Paypal is not a direct payment processing gateway.

    Paypal is a 'floating money'. Just like e-Gold, it's known as "digital" money. means it's not real. it does have value because it is accepted anywhere & you can cash it out. If you setup a paypal business account, whatever transaction will turn into paypal fund first before you can cash it out.
