Over the years I've heard of many "non-credit card" solutions to paying for goods online. Most of them I've thought were fairly silly and not very useful. Besides, more and more people have become comfortable with using credit cards online. Yet, some companies keep trying. The latest is a bill me later feature that some sites are testing out. This seems a bit questionable, as I would imagine any such scheme would be an immediate target for scammers who would take the goods and run.
