    alternative methods of payment

    How is it possible that some online pharmacies offer other methods of payment like western union, bank tranfer and even order by phone?

    these methods can be easily traced... am i right?

    how could they be so bold

    There are people who don't want to pay by credit card and there are some shops which don't want to receive large amounts by credit card payment, that's why they may have alternative payment methods like the mentioned.

    It's easily traceable. Yes. But why worry about it being traceable or not if you're doing something completely legal?

    Methods of Payments like Western Union/Money gram, Postal Money order(COD), Bank Transfers etc... are taken by several Reasons :
    1 : No Chargeback
    2 : No need to pay unwanted fees to Processors
    3 : Customers don't want to Disclose the Card #
    4 : No Tax Imposed if getting payment in Cash.
    5 : Much safer in taking orders over the Phone instead of web
    6 : Order by Phone or Phone Support is Very Important for any Online Pharmacy these days.

    Many More reasons................
