Hi everyone,

I have tried to filter through various PayPal threads to find a concrete conclusion to my dilemma. I work mostly with European agencies where the new IBAN transfer system saves so much on fees, however I am now awaiting payment from Canada for in excess of EUR 1000. I have not renewed my PayPal account since we had to agree to their new terms and conditions.

Could anyone suggest the most cost effective way to receive money from Canada? I am based in France if that information helps. Would PayPal still be the best option?

I really do not have any idea on the best solution here.

Thank you for any help and I wish all on ProZ a very Happy Christmas.

I have been using 3 payment systems for worldwide e-currency transfers myself and would like to recommend them to everybody:


Instant transfers and low fees for transfer - max 50 cents (e-gold and moneybookers) and 0.8% of the transfer amount (webmoney) makt hese sytems a real help.
