    It is silly and really don't make any sense. See I told you that lots of European companies will not allow an American or who live in USA to open an account with them and do transaction. I just got a reply from postfinance as bellow

    "Thank you for your e-mail dated March 20, 2012.

    We appreciate your interest in our services. PostFinance is primarily a national provider of financial services which focuses on the Swiss market and those of neighbouring countries. For business-policy reasons, we do not offer services beyond these geographical limits and are therefore unable to open an account for you."

    Well I guess that I just have no other option but to go with Bank even they charge me so much which is really good but at least will not have to face all those issue.

    Anyway thank you for your help. I appreciate

    Thanks Ms. Dorothy Wegmüller I actually did already and hopping will hear something from them. I appreciate your help.

    By the way do you know about this website http://www.webmoney.ru/eng/about/

    This is another website I tried to have an account but they never allow me same reason for being American or live in USA. If I could have an active account with them and able to add fun I could feel more comfort and use for my several payment but unfortunately I cannot use this service either

    Thanks again.

    I'm not quite sure about their service. I know about this website and visited couple of time but still not very clear how it will work. Because like I mentioned as being an American or live in USA they have so much money laundering rules. Lots of trading company deny to let open an account just because from USA also lot of company cannot work with Bank from USA to withdraw money from my account and asking to wire their bank first so then I can actually wire directly receiver bank. I think I will try if i can learn more about http://www.postfinance.ch and not sure if they will allow me to open account again the same reason for being American or live in USA and if I will able to use my bank account to link with them to send money

    Hi Ms. Dorothy Wegmüller,

    I really really appreciate your response. Thank you very much for your post. Well I actually tried out above all of them you mentioned. Paypal is good but there is problem with PayPal, you cannot send money in Bank through Paypal receiver will receive money with a email address. I actually need to send money in receiver Bank account. Secondly Paypal is also bit costly and when there is currency conversion involved they add 2.99 with the wholesale rate which might be higher then Bank. Moneygram is good but same reason they give you less currency conversion rate as well fee is high to send money. Have heard about Google but never try. I do need to send money in receiver bank. Most of the online payment company offer Email to Email or Email to Mobile payment transfer which will not work in my case. Secondly sending money from USA to other country has lots of money laundering rules which make even more difficult to be able to send money even you are doing nothing wrong. I just have a individual business and that's why I need to send money regular but seems cannot find a good and cheap way to send money Switzerland. Can go with Bank like I said earlier but they will charge me about $20-50 which I will not even make profit for each transaction so its getting hard for me to be able to continue stay in market and beat other competitor

    Thank you Ms. Dorothy Wegmüller. I appreciate your answer. Well the reason I don't do a Bank wire transfer because it is expensive. I need regular transfer and I'm looking for something cheap probably less then $20 because I do know that there are few Banks offer international wire transfer and fees about $20-50 for each transaction. Do you know any bank that offer cheaper than $20 or free? But not with business banking because I know they are few bank offer free wire transfer but has to be business customers and meet certain criteria.

    the website is international, but showing in parts under a different name

    Call them as they might have changed their fee structure

    http://www.travelexbusiness.com/ch-de/dienstleistungen/inter
    nationale-zahlungen

    and the service makes particularly sense if you have repeat payments..
