I know we've had this thread before... I don't remember the western union fees, but I remember they were cheaper than wire transfers for small amounts of money, and more expensive for large amounts. I think the max daily is 8 or 10k USD, and at that amount or higher the wire is a better deal.
Yeah, I know we discussed this at some point but I lost the thread and couldn't be buggered to search for it. Did a little more research and found that it is significantly cheaper for small transfers and costly for larger ones, as you said. Thanks gents!
Jesus. Wire fees at Bank of China are more like 250. Now I feel 250 for not trying Western Union first.
Ahahaha. I see what ya did there.
Addendum: do you guys know what info you need to have, as far as the recipient goes? I believe you need the recipient's:
name, address, phone number, bank name, bank address, account number and "SWIFT" code (whatever the fuck that is)? Any more or less than that?
Y'know the numbers on the bottom of your checks? One of them is your account number. On the other side of the || is the bank's SWIFT code.
