ePayments.com Payment Method

Personally, I would prefer to use PayPal as a preferred payment method for my ad network programme. However, some ad networks do not use PayPal due to some issues and they have other payment methods which are not common in certain countries.

I'm going to evaluate one of the payment methods that is available for one of the ad networks that I'm using. It is www.ePayments.com.

The available payment methods are:
  • ePayments
  • Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard
  • Payoneer Bank Transfer
  • Wire USD
  • Wire EUR
  • Webmoney Z
I chose ePayments because I think the setup is easier and minimum cost needed to signup. You can go to the ePayments website to under it better.

I took a couple of days to figure out a problem to signup a personal account. I used my Hotmail.com account to sign-up but every time it failed because it did not send an email to my Hotmail.com account for the confirmation code. I tried other Hotmail.com account and also failed. I asked the support for help and they advised to use other account which is not Hotmail. I tried using gmail.com account and immediately I got the confirmation code in my gmail account. So, to avoid the frustration during the sign-up process, you need to use gmail or other account but not Hotmail. I think ePayments.com should mention this in their FAQ or resolve this issue with Hotmail.

You will need to verify your ID, address and phone number too. I'm stuck at verifying the phone number because every time I tried to confirm my phone number, it did not send my any confirmation code. I tried other phone number with different Telco, it is the same issue. I have submitted a ticket to ePayments and they are trying to check with the Telcos. I hope this can be resolved soon.

Forgot to update on my OIBR stock. I have sold all my holdings a couple of months back. I have made a loss of 90% of my capital. Luckily I only invested USD1.6K only and managed to get 10% back. Well, it is a lesson learned and I think when you see a stock that is low in price, it does not mean that it is a value stock to invest.

I sold it because I think that if it is below USD1 for many months, it will be delisted from the stock exchange NYSE and I would need to do OTC trading if I want to sell it. So, to avoid this from happening, I have decided to sell it and I have not regretted since the day I sold. It is a relief for me.

Luckily, I have made more from Apple stocks and already covered the loss from OIBR. There is nothing more to expect from this OIBR except for it to be delisted from the exchange.
