These are some of the money exchange services that might eventually work with a tip bookmarklet.
To work with a bookmarklet, a service must support donation links by e-mail address and allow a recipient to open an account after money is sent. As far as I know, so far only Yahoo! PayDirect supports both of these features.
This table is very outdated.
