I received and paid my invoice yesterday in just a couple of minutes (and will have to redo my top 10 list). Note that using Wise.com the first time does take extra steps and time for setup but once you've done that, using it is a snap. The actual transfer took two seconds (literally) and the fees were half or less compared to other methods of payment.

If it's a firm I haven't purchased from I'll usually go PayPal just in case there's any funny business and then Wise after that.
I've purchased from Biga and would recommend Wise.
I purchased my first coin from BIGA 3 weeks ago and wasn’t expecting to see it delivered as quickly as it was. I think it was record time from an international dealer. The coin was great.
I used PayPal
Some dealers/auction houses require wire transfer for invoices over a certain amount, policies vary.
A word about currency conversion cost. Paypal's currency exchange rate charge is generally not competitive. A general rule, at least in the past, is that credit card companies offer better rates, so if you do use Paypal, be sure to select the option to have the credit card company determine the conversion rate at check out.
Edit: Not all sellers accept Paypal, mostly due to Payal's fees. If that is the case for you, see if you can pay directly though your credit card. That method is accepted by all the sellers that I have dealt with in the past.
