One safe way to conduct online transactions is to use a payment processor. In the Internet world there are many payment processor that can be selected, such as PayPal, Alertpay, Neteller, Google Checkout, Liberty Reserve and so forth. The basic principle of this payment processor is the bridge between our real account (eg bank accounts, credit cards, etc.) with the seller on the internet.
