The German 'Postbank' offers money transfers to the US on their website. Has anyone experience with that? My question are for the cheapest and fastest way (of course); namely:
- should I pick 'transfer in Euro' or 'transfer in $', in other words, is it cheaper to let Postbank do the conversion, or to let the receiver do the conversion (this would be Chase)?
- should I pick SHARE, OUR or BEN (means 'who pays the fees'; shared, Postbank customer, or the recipient)?
- how long does it take? is it like a wire transfer (meaning 'next day')? or does it take weeks?
