I just stumbled upon your blog and found it very useful to a freelancer like me..

All my friends are talking about online payment services so I decided to sort the thing out with them. As usually I decided to look the information up in the Internet. The best site I found connected to this topic was It contains all the necessary information – why it is better to pay online, the advantages and disadvantages of the system, how to choose the best system for you and even the survey of the main online payment services. As if I read an encyclopedia! Now I will easily make my choice!
