I’m finding it harder and harder to work with my friend from the Ukraine, to transfer money from the US, in USD to USD (he has an account that allows dollars).
- I used to work with Western Union, which was a hefty fee around $60. They closed the account years ago on concerns I was operating a business (I am)
- I opened an HSBC account to be able to wire internationally, with a $45 per wire fee, but they have stopped allowing transfers
- Ria Money Transfer was great, but they stopped this week doing deposits in to UA
Arrgh! If a Ukrainian is on a freelancing site like UpWork, how do they get money from their accounts, especially US clients? It must be incredibly expensive by now?
