I think PayPal is the easiest solution unless the recipient can pick up credit card payment by himself. PayPal is easy for both sides. I did try bank transfers to UK a while ago and - wow, expensive (AFAIR some UKP 20) which I consider a real rip off.

Another nice one is this: My dad sold something via eBay to a chap in Scotland (part of UK). The buyer sent my day a check of his (the buyers) Scottish bank written in Euro since the price for the sale was in Euro. My dad then passed on that cheque to his (my dads) bank which then connected with the Scottish bank. Nothing wild so far but here is the crazy part: The Scottish bank refused to honour a check of one of their customers since that cheque was written in Euro. The solution you ask: Well the buyer picked up some cash in Euro and put them in an evenlope and sent that with snail mail.

And to Gulli: Sending CC card details via email can be done like this in a relative safe manner: Write it in a draw file, convert to paths, save, put into a password protected Spark archive and send that - in case you care to you can split the number into several separate mails even. Chances for non RISC OS users to be able to "decrypt" are relatively low.

But do I agree that I prefer the companies accepting credit cards via website like Spellings (Aemulor.com) offers or via PayPal.
