Had my reservations - totally unfounded!
Review by confirmed purchaser
I had problems transferring funds to my daughter in Australia, the joint account I had set up some years ago with my bank failed as Australia now allegedly have some problem with 'Maestro'. (Good of them to let me know!) They persuaded me to take out another system of funds transfer through them, which meant I had to send a new card to my daughter. I sent the card off and then did some more digging, when the money actually reaches my daughter I will be paying over 10% in charges with the combination of fees and 'hidden' costs, to which I refer to the ridiculously low exchange rate given on the foreign transaction. I decided to adopt the 'belts and braces' approach and opened up an account with GlobalWebPay, I had my doubts but I now sit here, the funds have reached my daughter's account 48 hours later, I have spoken to a representative of the company twice, he was extremely helpful and professional. I could not get to speak to a human being at all with the account I had opened through the bank, the card still has not arrived but I'm not worried, as soon as it does, I will empty the account and stick with GlobalWebPay. I cannot speak highly enough of them and I'm not being paid to write this, good, honest, old fashioned kind of service at excellent ' know where I stand ' rates. One of my better internet decisions.
