Using Paypal, Skrill or Bitcoin
TheUnCableGuys.ca recommends that ONLY Paypal or Skrill or Bitcoin be used to pay for Offshore Content.  This avoids any risk of credit card fraud.

Paypal and Skrill are reputable online payment services you link to your credit card or bank account.  You can arrange to send money from Paypal to anyone on the internet simply by sending them an email. They can choose to receive the funds sent.  They are unable to actually see your credit card information or banking information, so the maximum you can be defrauded is simply what you sent them in the single transaction.

Paypal is based in USA and originated as a payment handler for the Ebay auction site, and later became generalized.  It permits money transfers between many countries, but any not in good graces with the US government are blocked, such as Cuba, or Russia, etc.  Paypal came under even more scrutiny (like all US-based payment handlers) when the 2001 Patriot Act was brought into force.

Skrill is based in Europe and is governed by less strict financial transaction rules. It originated as a payment handler for online gambling sites.  It is identical in almost every way to Paypal, but it allows transactions to more countries.  Because Skrill is based in Europe, it does not get tangled up in US red-tape, or disclosures to the US Government, and it avoids becoming embroiled in diplomatic schisms between the USA and various other countries.  Skrill simply moves money from A to B.

Bitcoin is a crypto-currency.   The concept is that a list of who owns what units of bitcoin money is maintained in a public "document" visible to everyone on the internet.  Internal "crypto" checks in the document ensure it cannot be faked.  Transferring money involves updating the document to show a coin has changed ownership.   No changes to any coin can be made without the consent of the person owning the coin.  In this way coins are transferred between people, by changing the indication of who owns them.  To preserve some anonymity, each coin is actually owned not by an individual with a name, but instead by whoever has a private key that matches the public key associated with the coin.  Due to carefully managed mathematical properties, knowing either the public or private key does not let anyone figure out the other key, and yet when presented with both keys, a simple mathematical check will confirm they are a matched set. There are hundreds of different crypto-currencies available, but the most widely used is Bitcoin. Actual transactions can be as little as one-billionth of a coin. Any amount of bitcoin can be bought and sold instantly to convert it to conventional currencies, such as Canadian Dollars on hundreds of exchanges in the world.    Transactions using Bitcoin have no fees whatsoever, but the currency exchange from CAD to BTC, or BTC to CAD does typically involve a foreigh exchange spread, which is where the exchanges make their money.
