. My entertainment this weekend (other than bidding in a Japanese auction...will post newps on arrival ), is figuring out a better way to pay. A friend mentioned XE.com, and I'd been aware of Transferwise (now known as Wise). I'm curious about people's experiences, satisfaction with interface--web or app, or any concerns. Good news or bad. Personally, for lower cost things (if available) I'd been defaulting to PayPal-- in all it's easy, familiar, already set up, costly, annoying glory. I've done a credit card directly a few times too but nowadays if they take credit cards, they usually take PP too. Once one gets to a certain price point though, these fees are pretty egregious. For other things I've done a few international wires. More work, fees that work to my advantage over a certain price point, no idea what currency conversion I'm getting before sending, and generally just annoying. I mean, an ACTUAL phone call??? In any case, I'm trying to set up a poll. If it works great and feel free to comment on preferences. If not, oh well. Comment anyway. Assuming anyone wants to. It should be a private poll.
