I am trying to donate through a credit card in U.S. dollars at this link:
I don’t use Paypal.
Is it possible?
Thank you.September 24, 2021 at 7:53 am #67835MemberXecureSeptember 24, 2021 at 7:01 pm #67846ModeratorModdIt
Hi rej, depending on your location you can do a transfer with WISE, that means a lot better ratio between your payment and money reaching antiX.
Means more reaches antiX.
Paypal has transfer charges and gives a lousy exchange rate. I have sent thousands of Euro to Malaysia and Vietnam with what was transfer wise now call themselves wise.
Only problem at first was id confirmation due money laundering regulations.September 25, 2021 at 9:30 pm #67904Memberrej
Xecure – Thank you – it was successful.
After checking the WISE site and some of the sites reviewing it, it appears safe, although there were some other drawbacks for me.
I appreciate the suggestion and can understand the benefits of it. The exchange rate is 0.85 today and Paypal used 0.82.September 26, 2021 at 6:45 pm #67954ModeratorModdIt
Hi rej, please also note that Paypal also takes a fee tor transactions across currencys. It is generaly higher than that of wise.
To date I have transferred several thousand Euro to both Malaysia and to my adopted family in Vietnam.
Only problem was already mentioned documentation issue, designated to fulfill money laundering prevention laws.
BTW, my Family in Vietnam has had no income for last three months due covid closures and lockdown in HoChiMinh City, there is some government
support but that is not enough to pay the bills. I have also asked for continued attention to situation of neighbours. Some were hungry.
I have been glad to be able to get more to those in need rather than those in greed. Us company PP is grabbing millions, maybe billions in profit.October 1, 2021 at 7:59 am #68122Memberrej
Other than personal drawbacks, that would be unresolvable for me, WISE appears to be a nice option for money transfers. It has mostly good recommendations from various sites.
I am truly sorry for your family and neighbors and the terrible conditions they must endure. I hope there is relief there soon.
Thank you again for posting the information.
