    Default Transferwise

    Has anyone ever tried that? Found it while looking for alternative money wire
    oportunities. Looks like they are cheap, but "if it looks too good to be true..."!?

    took a quick look, the "how it works" part.
    2. Upload money

    Pay TransferWise in your local currency. Use your debit card, just like shopping online, or make a normal bank transfer.

    it may have other methods but did not make that clear. don't use debit cards, cc plastic only. if that was a funding option may well be worthwhile, from a client point of view. now, how it works on a commercial/vendor/recipient: not a clue.

    edit: should have included the bw option review. I would never consider attaching my bank account to anything on this site, ever, for anything, for any reason, at any price.......

  4. A vendor recently told me they only accept this or Bitcoin, so I guess its time to start talking about it. It bothers me because it looks like you have to give them way too much information, but the vendor assures me he trusts it.

    EDIT: Googling it I also find very mixed reviews, which also has me worried. I like my vendor so I would hate it if I had to stop using him because he took up with a scam service.

    Just be careful. Some places they are Unable to take debit cards from. & if u connect it to a bank? Well u know. Plus a true "transfer" like electronic would take "weeks". You do have to upload both sides of state ID.

    Checked into it & wont use.

  6. The thing that makes it so hard is that the vendor in question is someone I've been using for most of the year and everyone has good experiences with him (yes there's a thread for him in the Senior section) so I can only guess that he really does think this thing is all that good.

    Nevertheless I'm gonna look around for other vendors. If I don't find anyone worthwhile or who doesn't accept simpler payments (I can NOT do WU or MG) then I'll risk it.

    I had the same choice and I would say 'no' to transferwise and not even consider it. I am like you and can't do WU or MG.

    What I was going to do was the BTC.. I went to local BTC and found options but I like the cash option which was an ATM as it turned out. It was close enough for me to go there, though not convenient. I tried it once and it didn't work but I had a technical problem and I fixed that and never got back there yet. It was easy for other people. What tipped the scale for me was the anonymous factor. You can use it for a couple hundred dollars anonymously. I was told etherium for Android and Bread for apple. Those are the apps recommended by @Japaholic. That wasn't your question but that is my answer.

    Otherwise there are tons of individuals who sell in different ways. Nothing is ideal but I chose that because it was about time to figure out how to do it. I know that many people don't have the ATM option at all.

    Honestly, I think the Transferwise is ok. I looked it up and it didn't set off alarm bells. It would be reasonable choice, or one that makes sense.

    I've used transferwise three times with zero problems. I really like it and the exchange is MUCH cheaper and less fees than my ordinary cc. I thought it got really good reviews on the net, myself. I do have a bank account attached but it has very limited funds in it too. I'd rather that than tackle bitcoin, altho I have the feeling I'm going to have to do that eventually...

    I've used tw also with much success. I felt uncomfortable the first time but never had any issues with it. I used it maybe 6 times?

    Just wanted to add that I had also recently been given Transferwise as a payment option. As with MG and WU, I'm not comfortable with it and I won't use it, but that's just me.

    I appreciate all the info everyone's posted but imo I think this info shouldn't be discussed. It will turn into another non-useable payment method.

    Esp in general section, we're nearing the end of options.

    Seriously, I Know we're here to help but maybe we can try what someone tells us what pmt they take & pm others instead of posting? Just a thought, just trying to help...

    what you're saying is why I've never mentioned this method before, altho it's obviously used for a myriad of things. I would be happy to see this thread go away if that would be "prudent."
