Interestingly, Google Wallet has started offering users free debit cards Google Wallet is now offering their US users a free debit card for offline purchases anywhere that accepts Mastercard or debit cards, as well as withdrawing cash from your Wallet account at ATMs and banks. Based in the UK, Nochex is a relatively small service compared to the others mentioned here, but there is a strong chance that you have used it as an alternative to Pay Pal already, or at least seen it listed as a payment option.
Integrated into over 50 shopping carts and online store applications, Nochex is also listed as an acceptable payment method on e Bay, although its full integration into the system has taken some time.
Suitable for sending money to contacts as well as shopping online, Nochex is a strong alternative to Pay Pal – but you need to be aware that it does not get involved in disputes, so making a purchase via the service is something that you should do only when there is a robust dispute resolution system in place for you to use in the event of problems with the seller.
Think of a version of Pay Pal where you don’t have to pay the service as well as the seller.

The fact is, Pay Pal is an immense presence that many people around the world rely on.
With Amazon’s usual protection also safeguarding the transaction, this is one of the stronger alternatives to Pay Pal.
We’re just a little surprised it hasn’t been more widely adopted.Just a few years ago, Pay Pal had the honour of being the online payment solution that everyone used, whether they wanted to or not.With the arrival of Apple, Google and Amazon into the arena, more and more people are realising that actually, they don’t need to use Pay Pal, especially if they’re already invested in the ecosystem of one of the three big competitors.There is a good chance that you’re happy with Pay Pal.Perhaps you’re fully invested in their way of doing things. Pay Pal accounts regularly get blocked, either because they’ve been hijacked (although in my experience, Pay Pal are always slower to act than the user) or because (according to those who have had their accounts blocked) someone at Pay Pal made a decision that didn’t reflect that facts.Just as importantly, however, has been the rise of the smaller competitors.
