    PP Alternative - Amazon?

    Has anyone used Amazon Payments?
    https://payments.amazon.com/sdui/sdu...bpay/faq#wpFee

    Seems like a decent alternative to PP with no fees!

    There are a few other apps I have seen on the iPhone that might be viable alternatives for smaller transactions with no fees.

    Thoughts?

    I think someone here recommended Dwolla recently. I haven't tried it yet.

    Dwolla looks nice! Though it doesnt let you use credit cards.

    Venmo is another I found that covers CC fees up to $500.

    Monza- I think I saw what you are talking about, but cant find it now.
    I see this: https://payments.amazon.com/sdui/sdu...faq#wpWithdraw
    Which says there are no fees for withdrawal. Perhaps there are fees with Credit card payments?

    I just spoke with an Amazon.com rep.

    There are NO fees when using you PERSONAL Amazon Payments account and using a bank account.
    There are also NO fees up to $1000/month when using a credit card!

    Also, there is a dispute center if needed.

    So all in all. For small items less than a $1000 this is a great option. Also, perhaps even $2000, as the limit resets at the end of the month if you buy something near the end of the month.

    That's interesting...do they have a webpage with these limits and fees? I'm having difficulty finding anything that differentiates personal from business fees, and the limit I find is $500, not $1000. Any links you know of? Thanks!

    I had a hard time finding the differences as well.

    So I just contacted them: https://payments.amazon.com/sdui/sdui/contactussend
    Click on contact by phone. They call you and I was only on hold for a few minutes. Very responsive call center.

    I think the limit goes up if you verify your bank account with them. Mine definitely says $1000 now, not sure what it had before as I did not check it.
