Hallo! My customer from Hungary says that bank charges for money transfer to Lithuania make 50 EUR! I can't believe that it's true. Can anyone tell me the real costs? Or at least from Hungary to Germany?

Thanks!

Other options? Feb 9, 2006

Hi Tilli,

That sounds a bit mad, I must say. Have you looked into arranging other methods of payment? I currently accept bank transfer, Moneybookers, Paypal, Western Union and check. Between them, you should be able to find a cheaper option.

Cheers,
Søren

Have you tried asking for a bank statement? Feb 9, 2006

Maybe (depending on your relationship with the client) you can ask for a bank statement. 50 Euros seems a bit much, indeed.

Example Feb 9, 2006

A transaction of about 100 EUR was 15 EUR maybe a year ago, to Germany.

For example, see:
http://www.cib.hu/system/fileserver?file=/Kondilistak/03_kkv/6_vall_kondi_2005_07_04_HU.pdf&type=related

page 7, "bankközi deviza átutalás", which means transfer of foreign exchange to other bank

It's unlikely that 50 EUR is real, but possible.
