Re: [nafex] Dr. Parmar

Sending an electronic transfer, according to my bank, requires a $30
charge plus the amount being sent.

I use PayPal as an means of paying for items in the USA. They inform me
that they hope to have an International payment plan sometime in 2001.
My PayPal transactions are charged either against my bank account or a
credit card. The recipient gets a transfer directly to their PalPal
account where they can draw upon the deposited funds. There is no cost
to the recipient to establish a PayPal account.

On overseas payments, the quickest and most secure way is to use a
credit card for payment. Most commercial business operations can accept
credit card payment. Your can fax your credit card number, send the
number by two separate e-mails, transmit the information by phone, or
send the number via a letter.

When sending a check, I have previously agreed upon the proper amount in
local currency and converted the amount to US dollars,. The fee their
bank charges to process the check is added to the check.

Obviously sending a small amount of currency overseas can be very
expensive. For example a $5 amount and an $8 processing fee more than
doubles the cost; however, a $100 amount and a $8.00 processing fee
seems to be a reasonable transaction.

I don't sent cash.
