What is the best and cheapest way to pay for an international purchase (UK), directly with credit card or credit card thru paypal? There's a big difference in the conversion rate but not sure about the transaction fees. I need your advice, please! Thank you and have a great day, everyone!

My opinion is that paypal is the devil. I would never trust a company that steals from its own members. Freezes accounts for no reasons and relentlessly puts companies out of buisness.

I opened up a google checkout account, and I am about to start accepting payments via credit card through them.

With a credit card you have the protection of a chargeback. With paypal you have an imaginary $5,000 protection plan that is basically in the hands of the worst customer service department in the World (Paypal Customer Supprt )

Pay Pal will rob you blind! I'm looking for another way for people to pay for my items now. I don't like anything that charges me a monthly fee. Any ideas anyone?

The only thing with Google checkout is that you cannot use it on eBay. The only other way to get around PayPal is a merchant account or accept checks & money orders only.
