Bank Transfer / Money Order: To transfer currency you may want to use an International Money Order or do
a Direct Transfer from your bank. I
don't know exactly how much this would cost you to do. There will be a
charge but it will depend on your country and which option you use. For Money Order option
you could use an international transfer agent such as MoneyGram
>> or Western
Union >> (in
which case you will not need my bank details). MoneyGram and Western
Union have outlets, for example, at many local travel agents, so are quite
convenient (MoneyGram is perhaps the most convenient for me).
For a bank transfer you would need the details of my bank account, such as the
name of my bank, its sort code, my account number, etc. Let me know if that is
what you want to do and I will send you the necessary information.
Cash: I have had feedback from several countries now suggesting
that bank transfer charges can be expensive. For example, from
both Spain and Norway the cost would have been more than for the plants. I
can't see how the banks justify charging that much. This will vary from
place to place, and maybe the situation will improve with time, but it
seems many banks are more interested in making huge profits than
giving good value for money service. I have no objection to receiving
payment via the bank, if that is what you want to do, but in practice, after looking
into it, many people overseas have so far decided on sending cash.
So, particularly if the transfer options turn out to be expensive
in your country, I should emphasise that cash is an option, and that I am
personally okay about receiving this through the post.
This may not really be liked by the post offices, but if put between some thin card
would not show through the envelope and it would be okay. This means that
to send UK pounds sterling you would only simply need
to get money changed at the bank.
uros: I will accept euros as cash (not
euro cheques - I do not have a euro bank account). The guideline prices per plant
are shown in euros on the 'latest details' page. There is (naturally) some
rounding of the price to make the conversion easier (i.e. to send cash notes rather than
If you are thinking of buying more than two plants, contact me and I will
probably be able to quote you a slightly better price than simply adding the
cost of separate units.
Note that the euro prices on the 'latest details' page are guideline and are not
guaranteed. I will try to keep the euro prices up to date with any
significant fluctuations in the exchange rate, but if there are major changes
then the euro price may change accordingly. If you want to see if this
is likely then for an up-to-date check on how euros convert read
