In any discussion about work at home jobs for moms, it’s necessary to also discuss payments. In particular, this conversation revolves around the best way to receive payments. In some cases you won’t have much of a say in the matter, especially if you are looking specifically for work at home jobs for moms. Most likely, your employer will already have a system in place and all employees will be paid in the same way (many employers also use PayPal, but many do not). If you are a freelancer, a consultant or operate any number of other online businesses, however, it will be up to you to choose how you will receive payments. In most cases, PayPal is the go-to payment processor. Most of your clients will also already have PayPal accounts, thus making it that much easier to embrace the behemoth as your default payment processor.
Upon recently learning of yet another PayPal horror story, though, I thought that it’s high time to offer a few alternatives. Now, don’t get me wrong, PayPal has millions of satisfied customers and I’m not advocating in favor of or against them…I use them myself, in fact. It is not unusual, however, to hear of PayPal restricting or freezing accounts while wreaking havoc on a customer’s business and professional life.
I’m also going to be upfront about the fact that I’ve never used any of the companies I’m about to share with you. Most of my customers pay via check or PayPal. Since hearing about so many people suffering under PayPal’s policies, however, I have bookmarked a few companies and am seriously contemplating a switch sometime in the near future. Without further ado and in no particular order, the following is a brief list of some of the companies that I’ve found and which look like they may be good PayPal alternatives:
While we’re always here to offer information on work at home jobs for moms (and home business ideas), we’re leaving it up to you to determine which payment processor is right for you. PayPal has plenty of satisfied customers who’ve never experienced a glitch in their system and have never been placed in a bad position as a result of their policies. Still, a lot of people live in fear of the seemingly endless supply of PayPal horror stories out there, which is completely understandable. If you are one of those people, I hope that these PayPal alternatives offer you an idea of what else is available. As with all of the info that we offer on work at home jobs for moms, it is always up to YOU to do your homework and determine which one is right for you.
Those of you who’ve already found work at home jobs for moms, how are you paid? Are any of you using a PayPal alternative? Would love to hear your comments, ideas and recommendations below.
