RME? Tired of Paypal? Try Something New!

Refer A Friend using Revolution Money Exchange Are you fed up with Paypal's fees, bad customer service and unwarranted disputes where they hold your money for what can seem like forever? I am, so I decided to check into other ways to receive payment from customers through my Etsy site and other ventures.
I recently signed up for Revolution Money Exchange. This company doesn't take any fees out of your money and they will even give you $25 if you sign up before May 15! Plus, you can get $10 just for referring a friend.
When I signed up the $25 showed up in my account immediately! I plan to use it on a fun Etsy purchase. You can even withdraw your $25 immediately and they'll send you a check!
RME is becoming very popular and lots of people are talking about it. Feel free to research it before you join - I did! I read many blogs, forum posts from Etsy members who love it - and even those who have their concerns. After researching, I made a decision that the pros outweighed the cons, and decided to take the leap!
Here are some websites that might help you make a final decision:
If you decide that RME is for you, please click on my button above to sign up. You will get $25, and I will get $10!
If you accept RME and have anything to add about this great new service, feel free to post a comment.

Hi Steph,

I saw your blog about being a work-at-home mom and giving product reviews, and I wanted to pass this to you as a possible idea, for your mom readers with older children, as we approach end of the school year gift time for teachers, coaches and activity leaders.

I work with, a free group gifting site designed to simplify the process of organizing a group gift, allowing moms and dads who are on a tight budget to still give. is an online solution featuring gift envelopes to collect money, vote, gather comments and shop.

FrumUs, Inc. was founded after Karen O'Neil's son's baseball season ended in 2006 without anyone taking up a collection for a coach's gift. Since passing the envelope was no longer an option, she turned to her computer and was surprised to find no turn-key solution for collecting money and purchasing a group gift online. O'Neil put her 20-plus years of marketing experience to work along with experts in gift giving, ecommerce and marketing to create a website that effectively streamlines what was once a multi-step manual process.

Hi, I'm sorry I tried to find your direct contact info. but I couldn't so I will just send this to you here.

My name is Shanen and I am a student and worker at ASU's New Media Innovation Lab. At work we're developing a site for local moms/parents to trade and barter for items and services. For example, a mom with a new baby could trade her photography skills to get a crib. Each user would set up a profile with the items they want, what they have to trade and what skills they have and the services they are looking for. In order to make this site the best it can be, I've got a few quick questions. The more detail you can give the better. Thanks for your input!

First, is there any interest in a site like this? Do you have any specific recommendations or concerns? Does the idea of trading with people you don't know concern you? If so, what would make you feel safer with the site? Of the following options, which would you prefer?

A receipt/log of your trade/services OR arrange the trade yourself with the other person?

A rating/review system for people you have bartered with similar to EBay, where you cannot delete the reviews, whether good or bad OR an option for recommending someone you bartered with, either through written reviews or a thumbs-up type of system, without being able to write negative reviews that would not be able to be erased?

Of the following options, which would you prefer? An in-depth profile, including photo, interests, skill sets (with references), items wanted and items for trade with an identity verification program OR a simple profile with the same points, but without an identity verification check? Which would you prefer to fill out and which sounds safer?

What do you do with your old items or where do you get used items you need?

What would be alternative ways you obtain these items without spending money?

What would prevent you from using this site?

Feel free to answer whichever questions you like and to choose which questions to pose to readers you think might be interested in this.

Thank you so much for your time. I'd love to hear back your thoughts on this idea and maybe if you could ask some other mom's and people that would be interested in a free service like this! Have a nice day:)
