Sending Money Internationally

If one were to sell an item to someone in a seperate country or continent (UK/Europe/Canada), what form of payment should they ask for if they (Seller) live in the states? Is there an option that is somewhat fee free?

Thanks for the Help

Seth

Paypal or USPS money order is your best bet. Sure paypal might cost a few bucks in the end but its worth it when waiting weeks for a money order.

I dont know if someone in the UK can get a hold of USPS MO's though. I am definitely not going to pay more for PayPal.

You could have them send you a Western Union Money order, but with all the issues going on with fraud, WU can't be trusted. I know Canada has USPS posts.

I think I can trust this person; but how much would it cost me to cash or deposit these things?

Strange, I thought WU took a comission for each transfer. What difference from paypal then? Paypal is better IMO.

Each bank is different but it can be many times that of Paypal. (were talking like $25+ a transaction)

Paypal. It's the safest way to go. Plus if you ever have problems, Paypal will help insure you provided you do an evil-bay sponsored listing.
