Best method for receiving cash from abroad?

Found 11th Jul 2008
I'm expecting a £200 payment from Germany what's the best way for me to receive this avoiding as many charges as possible?

Trying to avoid Paypal!

Bank transfer.

Bank transfer would be free for you but not for the person sending it and their charge would probably be more than the charge on paypal so depending on who wants to pay the fee depends on the best way to send it. International bank transfers usually cost around £15 so paypal may be the best option and if the sender is to pay the fee, why not get them to pay £205/£210 to cover the paypal fees?

Yes, Paypal is looking like the simplest method.

You can do a "western money union" transfer in most travel agents.
