As you’ll see if you look in the paypal subforum, you’ll see we are having issues. However, I’ve talked about using Western Union. I’ve talked about it, but not really got a positive response. Western Union seems to have a reputation that’s not so great as far as legitimacy is concerned. That’s just what my team mates have told me. Can anyone recommend Western Union and let me know more about it?07/04/2015 at 9:58 am #4200
Western Union is a good service if you need to send money to someone who physically collects it from an agent abroad, but the fees are high. For online transactions, they’re not so great!23/04/2015 at 9:21 am #4395
Thanks for your help editor. Looks like we’re back to the drawing board on that one.
We have international clients who often have Western Union accounts. Obviously if the online transfer fees are high, what is the best way for them to transfer their money – short of getting a UK bank account and transferring it. Preferably, a way where we won’t be eaten alive by fees?23/04/2015 at 9:29 am #4401
As long as they are transferring more than £250 per month, and based on a 6 month minimum period, then an FX broker would be able to help with the lowest currency transfer rates on the market. Please see: https://www.eurotransfer.co.uk/business-payments/
For smaller payments, I’m afraid Western Union or PayPal are still the main players at the moment.
