This is a decent list. Here's my experience with several:

Payza - I haven't used this since the formal transition from AlertPay to Payza, but years ago there was a time when I received aggregately around $5,000 through it. It processes credit cards and works in a relatively similar fashion to Paypal. Also seems to be pretty secure. I'd say this is your best bet as a straight-up "Paypal alternative", assuming the quality has not degraded since the branding transition to Payza.

LibertyReserve - I have a long history with LibertyReserve. It's probably the most secure e-payment processor out there, and my transactions with it have always been quick, safe, and straightforward. With that said, it's definitely not a "Paypal alternative". It's not necessarily easy to transfer funds into, though it is somewhat easier to get them out, and there is absolutely no buyer/seller protection on your transactions. All transactions are absolutely final, and in some cases just completely anonymous.

Escrow.com - I have not personally used this, but close friends have told me of good experiences with it. I would deem it trustworthy though cannot say a whole lot past that.

Going beyond the list, I might recommend Stripe as a "Paypal alternative" as well. It requires those who process payments with it to be a bit more technically savvy, and is hard to explain exactly how it works, but look them up and check them out. If you don't secure your own website with SSL and things like that, you can still use Stripe by pairing it with Mijireh. Check them both out.

I just wanted to add this great company I found after being burned by paypal. You can use them on ebay and a regular site if you have one and they're really inexpensive and hassle free. It's merchantinc.com The best part about them is my customer doesn't have to register with them to pay me and they direct deposit my money into my bank account. That's just my 2 cents!

PayPal does not care about their clients' business and tend to ignore all their needs in my experience. Unfortunately it is the most widely used payment processor online.
I would really like to find an alternative where I would be able to accept payments and also easily pay out to my clients (something like MassPay at PayPal).

Why is there no Skrill? This is decent payment gateway (at least pretend to be).

I've tried MoneyBookers(Skrill) other than PayPal. So far so good.

The problem with a lot of these is that they lack the reputation that a lot of my clients associate with PayPal. If I couldn't use PayPal, I'd rather just process transactions without some sort of gateway and just use a processor.

Paypal is the most used (not automatically the best) payment processor, but as all we know Paypal doesn't support some countries and don't allow some online activities... The ultimate payment solution to verify and withdraw Paypal payements is to get a Payoneer debit card and the US payment sevice....
Top 5 alternatives :
1- Skrill (MoneyBookers).
2- Payza (AlertPay).
3- OkPay.
4- WebMoney
5-LibertyReserve

Please explain why you two say these are good. You are entitled to your opinion but just throwing names out without why is not very convincing.

CC Avenue is a good option. They are quite reliable and professional. Queries are followed up on quite promptly.

They also seem to use a pretty secure system, the user control panel is easy to use and payments are made without fail.

PayPal is the Walmart of online payments and as their rules are becoming more restrictive it might be a good idea to find an alternative. I suggest to use AlertPay, Money Bookers or GCO (Google Check Out). AlertPay is the most simpler of the three.

Amazon Payments is another very good option. Their policies seem to be more just and transparent than PayPal's and Amazon is a trusted name, so customers should not be hesitant about using this service. The only major drawback is they don't operate outside the US. That is, they don't offer their services to businesses that are non-US based.
