Hi there,

Although I'm based in Argentina, I'm a busy Project Manager like most are...

I offer PayPal as a payment option, but I have a hard time convincing my translators to use it, due to all the problems (time, fees, etc.) it has caused up to now.

Moreover, it's getting to be a big pain for me to take the money out of my US account from an Argentine ATM and walk all that cash to a local bank to pay my translators in pesos Ar.

But recently one of my translators in Mexico introduced me to Xoom (www.xoom.com), which is fast and not that expensive either.

Can anyone in Argentina (or people who have used this for translators in Argentina), tell me how the experience with Xoom has been for them?

I'm interested in knowing about any electronic payment system that is used in Argentina.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Kimberlee,

I'd definetely use Xoom! My experience with this system has been very good and quick so far.

Another option is Moneygram. I also had a good experience with this.

Good luck!

Although I'm in Brazil, I vouch for Xoom too. Practical and not too expensive. The money goes straight to the bank account.

However, if I'm not mistaken it's the sender who has to pay the charges...
