I have a Dutch Verified Business Account right now and enjoying it. It has helped me on the Internet a lot! Unfortn. I wish to downgrade when things settle down - back to a personal account and just use it to donate to charity, friends or purchase software with.
Anyway, in our country we have a few paypal-like companies, but they stay in the country only I think, I haven't seen them busy in the whole of Europe yet. Probably because they are new.
IF there is going to be competition, I hope they are smart and allow to transfer funds between the different companies.
