Revolution Money Exchange (RME)

We added a few more payment options yesterday. I'd like to share them with you so you can take advantage of these great sites.

The first one many of you are probably familiar with, Google Checkout.

Google Checkout allows you to receive payment for a lower fee than PayPal ($0.20 + 2.0%) compared to PayPal at ($0.30 + 2.9%). One nice thing about the Google Checkout system is that it can be integrated into our web page's shopping cart and therefor becomes another easy payment method on our site.

With Google Checkout you can also add payment buttons which are similar to PayPal's "Buy it now" buttons. This is great for sites that do not have a shopping cart system.

This next one I am a bit excited about.

Late last night, I found out about Revolution Money Exchange, a competitor to PayPal. If after reading this you are interested in signing up please contact me either by leaving an e-mail address in a comment or by e-mail at erin@crazytimescandles.com.

If you haven't checked out Revolution Money Exchange (RME) it is worth your while. The really nice thing about RME is that there are no fees unless you want a physical check sent to you or want a paper statement mailed (which you can print from their site for free).

That's right, it's free to register, add money, send money, receive money, request money and withdraw electronically to a bank account.

Plus as a bonus you will get $25.00 FREE in your account for signing up before April 15th. That is a great bonus. Each referral you make will land you a bonus $10.00 in your account as well.

Signing up is simple, just click the picture below to get started.
It took me about 2 minutes and I got my $25.00 instantly!

To accept this payment method you will need to send a request for the funds to the buyer and then they will have to pay the "invoice" that you send. A small price to pay to not have to pay PayPal's transaction fees.
Washington Post – "Former AOL chairman Steve Case is at it again, this time using his Revolution LLC investment firm to start a new credit card company he's calling Revolution Money…AOL vice chairman emeritus Ted Leonsis will chair the new company…the board also will include former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, former Mastercard CEO Russell Hogg, and former Charles Schwab chief executive David Potruck."

Hmmm...RME is intriguing. Makes you wonder how they are making money if they charge no fees. Definitely want to look into it!

Hope it works for you.Good information.I am uncomfortable about RME although it sounds good the whole "something for nothing" has gotten me before.Have heard that is how PayPal started.

That's how paypal and googlecheckout both started.

Paypal offered $5 free, and I believe googlecheckout started with a $10 offer...
