Shopping Online Without Credit Cards

from the do-we-want-this? dept

Apparently there are a lot of companies that are coming up with plans to let you shop online without a credit card. I remember talking to someone who had a business based on this a few years ago, and I thought he was crazy. More and more people were getting used to using credit cards online, and I thought his potential market size was shrinking daily. However, with all the recent glitches of websites exposing credit card data, I could see where these might come in handy. I wonder how well any of them work, though, and if they’re too much of a hassle.
