PayPal Alternative


Refer A Friend using Revolution Money Exchange


All the cool kids are doing it. . . Revolution Money Exchange is trying to give PayPal a run for its money. *cough, bad pun* Looking through the fine print, everything seems legit. $25 is automatically credited to your account if you sign up before April 15. (And if you click through on that button, it credits my account with an extra $10.) The test will be whether it becomes as widely accepted and trusted as PayPal.

Hey! Not to burst your bubble, but I just read this post from Like Merchant Ships about how Revolution Money Exchange might give your information to third parties. We don't even let PayPal know our bank account number (since credit cards are easier to get your money back if someone gets it), so you might want to be cautious. Otherwise, I'd be glad to help you get $10!

I totally agree that people ought to go in with their eyes wide open. I did give my ssn. . . I didn't give my bank info. Looking at the credibility of the institution with which they are affiliated, that is within my comfort zone. Still. . . I appreciate y'all posting the links so that anyone who does wish to click through and join isn't doing so naively.

I think it is totally hilarious that we all linked to the same post - probably just didn't know it because they were all still in moderation.

Funny!!

Hi, Kathryn! I can't remember how I stumbled across your blog--but I so like meeting other mom-bloggers. I think it is great that y'all have a heart for urban outreach.
