    Hi all,

    I am looking to find a cheaper way to pay my supplier. This is my 4th order so I have a good level of trust.

    I usually pay by CC via Alibaba and I get charged 2.99%

    I know there is also an element of exchange rate involvement too.

    Does anyone have a good alternative where I can ensure a good exchange rate/lower fees?

    Thanks

    Ayrton.

    Unfortunately, TWise only send dollars to the US not China, they would send CYN, but my recipient needs a Union Pay card, so that isn't straight fwd!

    I guess I need to just get a chunk of capital and then use that from a bank account rather than using the CC!

    I'd second Currencies Direct and World First. Use them both regularly. Whichever gives me the best rate.
