    In my opinion pay pal but that is from an internet marketers perspective.

    Pay pal seems to be the preferred payment option by many internet marketers. Although their have always been cases of paypal freezing your accounts and putting them on hold for long periods of time because of suspected fraudulent activity which in most times was not the case.

    Yeah Paypal should be your safest bet, most of the time freezes to accounts and account holds happen to internet marketers and online vendors.

    If you're just looking to send money around I don't think there will be much of a problem.

    Paypal for sure. Everyone uses it, so it's pretty easy to use it.

      I use PayPal as little as possible, and I sure as hell don't send it cross-boarder. In the past, I've used Xoom before, no complaints I guess. Money was sent to a shop keeper/tailor in the Philippines who made some awesome suits and I met him while I was there, but even then, I didn't feel completely secure.

      I prefer Wire Transfer. It's not 100% secure like most believe, but I feel more comfortable using a wire transfer from my business to another with any amount larger than $1,000.

    Hi,

    paypal is still the best option. Although you may use xoom but you should use an American credit card, other cards and paypal are not allowed in xoom anymore - unlike before.
    www.westerunion.com is also good.

    Paypal is definitely still the ideal choice. Never had a problem with them although i have heard horror stories about them though.

    I'd go with the proven operation that has been around the longest (aka Paypal).

    I like paypal, I know there are the horror stories, but you get them with any money transfer service. I have personally never experienced any problems. One thing to consider with xoom is that it is US only or at least US credit cards only.
