Re: Accepting international payment from Business ?

If they have contacted you via PD I would think that they will be ok and a bank transfer is probably the best way to go. See if PD have given them a rating.

They should have no problem with bank transfer, I'd would go with that as said paypal comes with fees and if your talking over 100 your then going to get big fees lol

Normally on the page where you upload your images for a request there is a buyers rating field.

I've had a look all over and can't find where you can see thier rating except when uploading to a request, worth emailing PD and asking maybe.

Re: Accepting international payment from Business ?

For buying stuff people often have a seperate account. I would recomend you set up a seperate account and send these details. They should be able to direct transfer. If the bank details leak then you can shut the account down. If its with your normal bank you can juggle the pennies online. It also gives you a balance of ins and outs.
