    Best Way To Transfer Monies From USA -> UK

    I might be selling something to someone i know in the US, but trying to work out the best way for him to send the money.

    We both trust each other, just dont want to suffer the exhange rate too much.

    So any helpful advice = rep

    Your Bank i'd imagine is the best bet...........the exchange rate would be more favourable than Paypal and also less expensive than a money order.

    Western Union should be instant.

    WU is great but not cheap, bank transfer will only take a few days, and it will be cheapest and with the best exchange rate usually.
