Best way to get payment from client in Canada to USA? No Paypal


Recommended Posts

+Seetheworldsecond

Hello,

I need help figuring out the best method to receive payment from my client living in Canada to me in the states. I  prefer not to use Paypal and I looked into Venmo and I am afraid to use it because of so many claims of people buying things and having Venmo reverse payment and they run off with the merchandise. 

 

Please help! Thank you my fellow neowins.

Does it need to be electronic? Have him/her send a certified check in the mail, you can do either a Money Order or Cashiers Check.

When selling material goods I always fret too when using an electronic service like paypal for fear based on reversal of charges. Perhaps they can just Western Union you the funds? Then no reversal worries so you will have the cash. Will cost you a bit though.

How trustworthy is this client? Is it someone you know pretty well? I've yet to have any issues with Venmo, but I only use it with friends I know. Have you been doing business with this client for some time now? Or is this a one off?

What's wrong with a good old bank transfer? (BACS)

^ This. Safe, secure, covered.  I really don't get why people try to use all these far less safe methods of transferring monies when your banks already have safe systems in place to do it.

Exactly, this is what I'm not getting.  I know American banks perform BACS transfers as I've done so.  Any other system be it PayPal, Western Union or any of the newer upstarts - why even bother?

BACS transfer vote here too, least you are covered for fraud etc. Western Union, Moneygram etc pay out in cash so there's is no chance of getting your money back if it goes sour

I ended up going with paypal and it all worked out. Guess paypal is the most reliable for international transactions.

How is it more reliable than bricks and mortar banks?
