What are your requirements? No other service offers the exact same set of features as PayPal. Which features are the ones that are important to you? The two services you link to are for businesses selling product on their web sites (and the first seems to be a regular merchant account for accepting credit cards) -- is that the type of thing you're looking for.

ProPay - been around a long time. Solid reputation.

I believe Revolution Money has a thing going on now where if you sign up for an account you get $25. They're trying to position themselves as a competitor to PayPal by not having all the transaction fees that PP does. If memory serves, however, the $25 promo ends today.
