I'm in the US and need to send money to a friend in the UK. However, I need to send pounds. I do have a credit card that doesn't charge international transaction fees, but don't know how to pay a personal account. What is the cheapest/easiest way to do this?
>>
>>52511077
mail them cash
>>
>>52511077
you can't.

Just paypal them money, it's only a few %
>>
>>52511095

No, that would likely be the worst way to do this.
>>
Does he have a PayPal account? You could send it to that, and I believe your friend could transfer money from that account to his in Eurobucks.
>>
>>52511077
The bank should have an option to send pounds (in any way the money sent will be converted to pounds)
>>
paypal, bitcoins or western union

You can do a bank to bank transfer if you're credit card is from your bank but don't because they interest rate is instant and high (once you make the transfer they charge you 30% right off the bat.)
>>
>>52511077
fuck how have none of you ever heard of Western Union.
>>
>>52511615

Any way to do it via cc so that I don't get charge stupid foreign transaction fees?
>>
>>52511643

Western Union is expensive as fuck
>>
>>52511653
How much are you sending? The bank will usually charge 20-50$ for a wire transfer. Check your local post office. They might some cheap option to send money to foreign countries.
>>
>>52511643
Western union is more expensive than PayPal
>>
>>52512188

15 pounds, so wire transfer wouldnt be worth it
>>
Try TransferWise
>>

Figures paypal is the best option now.

In the past, sending money to your own Swiss bank account and then making a SEPA payment to the UK would have been attractive.

But since all the drama that started around US IRS not being able to monitor your every step/transaction, US citizens are mostly b& from having these.

Buttcoins

It'll be a maximum 0.2% fee
