If I'm not mistaken, this can be accomplished using PayPal. Both the sender and receiver must have PayPal accounts. PayPal keeps exchange rates to current daily values.

There is really no need to send me any money 25112, as I get points and T-Shirts here, but if you insist .... ;-)

Paypal is the best and safe option. You can also do via bank transfer. Western union is another option.

It may depend on who is sending the funds and who is receiving the funds.

Are you buying something or selling something?

Is it from friend to friend or family to family?


Paypal has fees that may have to be paid by the receiver.
Ebay has long recommended that no one use Western Union money orders.
But, if the person you are sending the funds to, is a trusted friend or relative, no issues.
It's not a good idea to use Western Union money orders to let someone buy something from you, if you are in the USA.

A Paypal account is not required on both ends. It again depends on if the funds are being used to buy an item. I can sell something to someone in the UK and they can pay me with a credit card and they do not need a Paypal account.

If the transfer is strictly personal, no merchandise involved, then yes both ends need a Paypal account.

Can you state if it is for merchandise and whether the two parties are friends or family?
I would not accept certain types of payments from the UK, or send to someone in the UK if it is not friend or family.

It depends on whether is is for business, buying or selling, and how the parties are related.

The conversion of one currency to the other should not be a factor.

Western Union money grams are fast, but they are not a good idea if someone is going to send you the $$ for an item you have for sale.
