    Best way to accept bank transfers?

    I am currently using PayPal to accept money for my software sales. However, I am now getting a lot of customers who are from Europe, and they seem to really like bank transfers. (they email me and tell me that this is the only way they can/will pay)

    Can anyone recommend a company or service that can do this for me? I don't know anything about how this works...

    thanks!

    Two that I know of that handle bank transfers as well as online credit card processing are www.verisign.com via their PayFlow services and also http://www.worldpay.com/ which The Economist uses for their online site.

    I have only personally had experience with PayFlow.

    Anyone know of anything that is cheaper? ie: A service that just takes a small % from the total transaction amount, etc... like paysystems, paypal, 2checkout, etc...?

    Depending on how much your sale is, you might want to consider doing wire transfers. It would cost your customer money to initiated, and will probably cost you $10-15 to receive.

    Otherwise, if you're thinking of ACH. That most likely would not be an option for you.
