“I was a little frustrated – After all, I offered a perfect way to pay in Paypal and also suggested wiring the transaction. They chose not to do a more direct pay and in the end I had to wait 3 months and also wouldn’t get a full amount due to exchange and transfer fees.”
My experience is the opposite, international transfer via PayPal is close to impossible.
I wanted to use PayPal to pay Hugh Macleod for Moleskin 42 but after weeks of trying wasn’t able to make the payment. It was the most frustrating experience of my internet life.
