If you’re like me and tired of searching for a solid PayPal alternative, this post is for you.

I have a PayPal account connected to my credit card. I’m able to use my PayPal to buy stuff online through sites like eBay. But, PayPal doesn’t allow me to receive payments from someone else. And I know for a fact that people in many other countries have the same problem.
