International Commerce question

It's a work around, but we think we have one.

PayPal was a division of/owned by eBay for years, and in the last couple of years it was separated because one of the people on their board decided it needed to be separate. It was then sold. eBay is now introducing their own payment system that is better for both buyers and especially sellers. We first used it as Buyers on Monday. We no longer sell, we are retired and living here full time.

How do we know this? Our work on eBay allowed us to be able to retire comfortably and buy a home here, cash, and be in paradise.

We'll talk in person, but the work around will involve a bit of legwork.

We use Capital One 360 for literally all of our banking needs. They are an on line bank that charges absolutely no fees for anything. The only catch is that we have to be able to provide a US residential address.

That doesn't mean much. Our home here is considered by them to be our "vacation home" that we live in 100% of the time. They even have our ATM and credit cards delivered here free of charge. They are very easy to use for online payments and to use to send cash to places and people.

That residential address? That's the only thing, and nothing will ever be sent there. Think creatively!

Capital One was one of my first thoughts. I have a Stateside address, not a problem. I just wanted the advice of someone like you who’s used them and has the first hand experience I need to know about. Yes, I’d love to get together with y’all.
