What is your problem with moneybookers? Just asking because last time I was waiting 7days for transfer $ to my bank account. And there is some topics on this forum that make me scared of moneybookers. :S I think I’ll use swift next time…

My account in bank in Serbia was blocked for few weeks. As far as I was able to collect informations from different bankers, problem was moneybookers disrepute and suspicious financial transactions in the world. And they suggest me to avoid moneybookers and not pleasant possible situations. Most probably that’s why mb is blocked in USA . Maybe not whole US, I dont know, but lot of my US clients was unable to make mb transaction.
According the fees moneybookers rocks, when I withdraw serbian dinars (with all fees and exchange rates costs) I was able to buy little more US dollars in excange office than I received from envato. How? I really don’t know :D

Hi guys, I’m thinking of using SWIFT transfer for the first time. Any thoughts on it? Is it safe?

I’m kind of scared of it since there is loads of information that you need to enter, and I might enter something incorrectly. If I fill in the required fields only, is that enough for a safe swift transfer?

Thanks :)

I used SWIFT for the first time last month. It worked perfectly, the transfer reached my account the same day as it was sent. As for the fields, I filled just the required and it was enough. It’s cool that the service remembers your SWIFT transfer settings and you don’t have to fill in the fields every month. The Support Agent said that if something goes wrong with the transfer they will get back to you to get more detail about your account so that the transfer is finally made.

I always use SWIFT,it’s 100% secure.it’s just the 35$ fee that i don’t like ><,my bank takes around 10$ to 15$ so it’s 45$ or 50$ max (i’m not happy with that).i always receive my money 3 or 4 days after the confirmation email from envato,some people get their money 3 hours after the email,it depends on which country you live in.transfer problems using SWIFT rarely pop-up,i remember once envato had some problems with their bank,i don’t really know what was the problem exactly but i got my money delayed by more than 20 days.

P.S : I wanna switch to moneybooker since i’m not happy with the 35$ fee,so i need some informations about MB,i don’t know how it works,miseld can you please explain to me,you or any of you guys using MB,i’ll appreciate your help

Edit : SWIFT is the best option if you’re gonna transfer 1000$ or more.
