Many network customers use payment systems in their daily life. Some experienced users prefer two or more services. Those who have recently encountered the concept of “payment resource” cannot imagine its principle of operation. Electronic money, in fact, is an analogue of fiat units, with only one difference - the place of transactions. If a newbie decides to register a digital wallet, then he should give preference only to proven payment systems.
The freelance profession, which exists thanks to the virtual network, is gaining popularity among the population. During the crisis, many users began to look for earnings on the Internet. It is not uncommon for the customer and the contractor to be in different states. The salary is transferred to an electronic wallet and is used by the freelancer at his discretion.
Lets consider what criteria the client needs to pay attention to when choosing a payment resource:
Ubiquity. It is desirable that the service has no territorial restrictions and is available in many countries of the world.
Mass character. A payment system for a beginner should be used by a wide range of people. The more users trust the system, the better its reputation.
Methods for depositing / withdrawing money. There must be at least three of them, in case of malfunction of one of the options.
Speed. Transaction execution time should not exceed 5 minutes. The exception is technical work on the site.
Comfort. Convenient and intuitive interface attracts new customers.
Multicurrency. The possibility of registering digital wallets in the currency "ruble", "dollar" or "euro" will allow a beginner to make transfers without losing electronic money during conversions.
Low percentage of commission fees. This item is one of the most significant. When withdrawing funds, commission fees are charged by both the payment system and the bank that issued the plastic card.
Safety. The issue of protecting money from cyber fraudsters is considered the most urgent. However, almost every service strives for a good reputation, therefore, it applies innovative methods of securing customers electronic wallets.
