Paying money into to foreign euro a/c


F

Fred

I need to purchase some goods from France. Unfortunately they can't accept
credit cards. If I pay by telegraphic transfer that'll cost £20 which is
only slightly less than the goods are worth.

Is there another less costly way I could do this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Always cheeses me off that this sort of thing costs so much. Anyway, this
might sound silly, but if you trust the supplier, post a couple of Euro
notes. If you don't, tear in half and post second half after delivery!

Alternatively obtain an International Money Order from your bank.

Many thanks.

Yes but even that is £10. Interesting idea about Euros torn in half!

get a foreign draft from your bank and post it to france - should work out
about £6 if the face value is under £100 (thats HSBCs charge for their
customers)

Why not write them a UK cheque?.. I am sending
money home 2 my parrents back in Denmark, and
have given up trying to use BoS's international
payment service.. 1. To expensive, and 2. To
risky..

It cust only £5 to get the cheque cashed in DK...

Send Euros via registered post.

In what currency do you draw the cheque?

Mail them a Euro travellers check, endorsed to them.

In £sterling, - using the chequebook I got with my
curent a/c. -

They will then clear the cheque using the exact same
princips as here in the UK, - the diferents is just
the timeframe(7 banking days), and in some cases, they
are making the amounth awaliable for the customer even
before they have security!..

:)

Simple and strait-forward ;)
