Do someone have got money from Japan? My client offer postal money order, but that is not accepted in our country.
Please advice me - do you know bank, charging minimum for transfer money from Japan to Europe. As I know Japan banks are rather expensive when service.

My experience Feb 1, 2008

I have been working for a Japanese customer since about 3 years. For wire transfers, their bank charges 5,00€ and my bank...20,00€!!!

No way to avoid this as their system does not accept any other form of payment. But my accountant deducts bank charges as costs.

small postcard in the envelope with the banknote enclosed reached Tallinn ja koik oli korras. ^0)

But I really wonder why don't you ask this question at our Estonian forum?

Hardly anyone speaking English and living outside of Estonia could really answer your question.

It is Western Union or what? Postal Money Orders are not possibe in Estonia, as I understood. Do you have some new information?

Nad lihtsalt panid raha kirja sisse.

But I think in case of a reasonable amount of money the regular bank transfer will not be anything special for japanese clients. If the amount is small they could use Moneybookers. Moneybookers has a local account in Hansapank, so the fee for withdrawal from Moneybookers to Hansapank will be 1,80 euro only.
