In this article we would like to clarify the issue, as much as we can, by separating two terms which might seem to
mean the same thing, but instead have very different meanings to one another if deeply analyzed: „ „
„ and
 „ .

Why, in your opinion, should we divide these two terms? What exactly do we mean by the concept of ³virtual money´?

In this article, we will just discuss ³virtual money´ since the concept of electronic money would have to stretch to
include all those funds available with credit card payments. This issue, has been thoroughly discussed in our previous
articles on credit card payment posted on our blog.

When you need to register with one of these virtual money systems, other questions can arise:

- What do I need to do? Should I register with this system or not?

- Do I need this virtual money?


- What are the pros and cons of this method of payment?
