Hi fellow translators!

I've been using Paypal to receive small amounts and then transfer them to my bank account in Brazil, but I'm very frustrated because they are being charging about 7,3% from the total amount to "receive" the money from overseas. It is a big bite.

Does some of you had any recent experience with Moneybookers? I've been reading the site, but it is unclear if I can transfer the money direct to my bank account in Brazil (which is in Banco do Brasil).

I apprecite any ideas you can give me about this matter!

Heloisa

Sorry! Feb 3, 2011

Dear colleagues of my heart, I'm a dull, silly person, only a few posts after mine I saw that there are a lot of people talking about the same issue: moneybookers!

OK, ok, then I think it is best to stay with Paypal and accept their bites... only hope they don't bite my butt...icon_smile.gif

Have a nice day!

They give big bites and there is a delay to receive the money of around 10 days. And you have to go to the bank and sign papers, wait more 24 hours.

Paypal deposits are regular, punctual and you have to sign no papers.
