Will Mobile Wallets Replace Their Traditional Counterparts?

fatquack Re:I don't get it. (194 comments)

15%?! Now I know you're joking because even the risky dealers (porn sites) only pay 7.5% max.

You clearly don't work in the porn industry. A lot of pornsites would be very happy if they only had to pay 7.5%, if they could even get a merchant account and not have to go to a third party processor and pay 25%. Not to mention the ridiculous fees VISA charges you just to get a merchant account if you're a porn company.

Ebay Fined $61M By French Court For Sales of Fake Goods

fatquack Re:Playing Devil's Advocate (399 comments)

Indeed, eBay are crap. I've had many problems with getting eBay to remove counterfeit DVD's. The seller even mentioned they were copies on DVD-r and they still did nothing until legally threatened and the seller wasn't even deactivated. The guy was selling hundreds of DVD-r's, he did not have one legitimate item in his entire selling history.
