Guess you are referring to "e-gold" processor.
They are actually pretty nice, and they are advantageous, as they give us a % increase in balance, when the gold rates increase.
And as we all know, there isnt going to be a fall in gold prices unless they found that moon is made of gold :O
So it is a good investment.
And answering the weirdest payment method I ve come through would be "WESTERN UNION" . It is weird, because it is so stupid to send amount like 10 dollars via western union , paying 20+ dollars fee!!
