1. You would have to manually ask customers to use it since eb does not accept it as a form of payment acceptance.
2. Alertpay is having a lot of problems with credit card processing and scams and frauds - in fact, I wonder if the service might be defunct altogether! A few of my visited sites no longer accept Alertp ay...

Some time earlier this year, it was mentioned that one of these clownass third-party payment systems stopped being able to even accept either MasterCard or Visa. Can't remember which one exactly.

Haha. The company's name explains the mess you will find yourself in.

Just to chip in - they suck!

Getting money out of them is a costly affair. You have to pay to withdraw. They do have a free option whereby they send you a cheque but that has never ever worked when I have requested it. It is always unavailable right now.

I only have a few quid in but I want to get it out without being fined for the pleasure!

I've also heard some horror stories on how they steal from you. For instance, if one of your buyers owes money to them, they will reimburse themselves from you instead.

@BiN, I had forgotten about that aspect - too true I had heard the same - they will screw with EVERYBODY involved in the deal.
