Saint Vincent and the Grenadines incorporated retail fx broker Alpari has announced that it has added the Perfect Money electronic payment system as a deposit and withdrawal option for clients.
Alpari stated that there is no commission for replenishing funds using the service. Minimum transfer amount is 1 USD / EUR.
Beyond bank transfers, Alpari now offers a number of fund deposit/withdrawal options including Bank cards, Neteller, Webmoney, Skrill, AdvCash, Vload eVouchers, Perfect Money, and BitPay.
Receiving client deposits has been an issue of increasing import (and difficulty) for retail forex brokers, especially for “offshore” FX brokers like Alpari located outside the regulated EU centers or other major government-licensed locations such as Australia or the US. A number of e-payment transfer and credit card companies have curtailed their willingness to work with forex brokers, due to a rise in client complaints and chargebacks.
