    Using Webmoney?

    I'm sure you have heard about Webmoney, haven't you?

    Well, I know that Webmoney is widely used in Russia and Ukraine.

    I want to hear from other countries - are you using Webmoney? Is it popular in your region?

    Feel free to comment.

    it is not popular in UK at all, as it is most complicated way to pay or receive money from customers.

    NameServer, maybe that's the gap yet to be filled?

    Well, we use Webmoney, no pain with it at all. Taking into consideration, that we can convert Webmoney <> E-Gold - this really rocks.

    When opening Webmoney acc - you get 4 accounts (dollar, euro, hryvna, rubl - the last two for Ukraine and Russia). Yet, 80% of transactions come in USD

    Yes, it uses Webmoney Keeper - software.
    Nice interface, useful info there all-in-one.
    Other things, like WMPhone are also available, though I don't use it I use Skype.

    WebMoney has both positive and negative sides.
    Their security settings are really great and you will never loose your money like with e-gold through hacks, but for Joe Average it’s too complicated to work with and maintain.

    Also lately they started locking accounts based only on their suspicion. Russian speaking boards are now full of comments regarding this. And at last if you are not in Russia or Ukraine it’s almost impossible to fund your account. (I think they still use term “purse” instead of “wallet” LOL).

    Bottom line is, I would love to see competition to E-gold, but WebMoney is toooo far away from it.

    I see, all opinions sound reasonably.

    Well, as a resume - Webmoney is good for Ukraine and Russia. Other countries prefer other choices Good to know, as we planned to start using Webmoney transfers for international customers, we even wanted to create our mod for osCommerce to accept Webmoney.

    I think it's too early to go with those things.

    Thanks everyone.

    How to withdraw webmoney funds to other countries?
    There are so called exchange points, where you can exchange webmoney to other currencies, or perform exchange to egold, and other e-currencies.

    Can one user owe more than one account?
    As far as I know - not. But you have multiple currency accounts within yours - USD account, EURO account, etc. You can have many accounts in yours with many currencies.

    How to verify one account?
    You only need governmentally-issues document (passport) to perform account verification. After you verify your account, some time passes, and they change your account type to 'Verified'.

    How to set the gateway?
    Not sure what you mean...

    If you use osCommerce shopping cart - you use one of the following:
    http://www.oscommerce.com/community?...y&category=all

    Seems, that's it

    I believe, there is a limit for unverified accounts. However, I'm not sure, since the first thing I do - I verify my account
