Whenever i order a search or certificates internationally i have to purchase a international bank cheque to pay for it. These cheques cost $30 aust. each. Usually i order a few things from the one place to make the cost of the cheque worth while but this time i only want to order the one thing and the international cheque will cost me over twice as much as my order. I dont have credit cards and some places dont take them anyway. Maybe if i want it bad enough i will just have to pay for it:mad: Does anyone know a cheaper way to pay internationally that the bank may not have told me about. I have paid for their xmas party already and i dont wish to pay into their retirement fund as well. Would appriecate some advice if someone knows a better way around this.

Hi Glen

Whenever i have asked the bank about the different ways i could send the money they have never mentioned the visa debit card. I have heard of them but never gave it a thought as to whether i could use them for this. I will look into that when im up the street tomorrow. They must see "sucker" written on my forehead when ever i walk in that bank. Ha Ha sucker no more!
Many thanks Glen
