Wire transfer as a payment option

  1. Jul 20, 2007 #1
    Normally , when you decide to buy , let say a laptop or a refrigerator online, and you want your payment option to be wire transfer, are you paying for the wire transfer service, or is the wire transfer service free. What are the advantages of wiring your money to online vendors like usanotebook.com or ebay.com?

    I would think wire transfers for purchases is unusual and a bit outdated with debit cards, credit cards and services like paypal.

    A wire transfer would be from your bank account and you pay your bank for the service.

    Or instead are you referring to a prepaid money sender like Western Union?
