Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

Great info Leon, thanks. Been watching and hoping the USD/CAD rates will creep up to a one year high.

Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

Howdy!

We are setting up our account to pay through XE.com, and I was wondering if anyone could send me some screen shots of exactly what they entered into the Recipient section of the account setup. Tammy sent me two pages of account information, but I'm not at all sure where to put it all. She suggested I put a post out here to see what others have done. Seeing exactly what was entered by someone who has successfully sent a payment would be very helpful!

Thanks,
Coby

Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

Suggest you exchange emails and not post screen shots on the forum.

Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

Our process went pretty painlessly. We bank with Wells Fargo, so we did a US wire transfer directly from our bank to Tammy's bank and paid only the $45 wire transfer fee. We were able to skip the step that would go through the Wells Fargo International Bank in New York. They told me a Canadian wire transfer would cost more. We pick our 5.0 up July 3rd. Since paying for our trailer we have added a window in the bathroom, so we will have to go to a bank up there when we arrive and exchange money to pay for the window or get a Canadian bank draft. In all, it went very smoothly.

Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

Coby,

I also found the recipient setup in xe very confusing and had trouble filling it out. So I filled out the recipient info with Escape's name and address. Had them send a check instead of wire transfer.

The check option is cheaper and only takes an additional 3-4 days for the check to show up in the mail.

Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

My initial credit card deposit of $500 had a $19 foreign transaction fee. since then I have mailed weekly checks to Escape, the first one took a little longer because I only put one stamp. Canadian postage is about $.80 so the second check got there in 6 days, mailed on a Sat, thurs delivery. The interesting think is when the $30,000 was deposited and cleared, I got credit for another $900 by Escape due to the exchange rate, so I'm not complaining about the $19!!!

Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

For XE, do you deposit money into your XE account first then transfer to Escape, or are they a middle service that just transfer money between your own bank and escapes bank?

Re: How to pay up (to Canada)

gocamp,

It is basically and middle service that exchanges your money.

Once your account is set up with XE, you have an account that is linked to XE. In my case it was my checking account.

When you want to pay Escape trailer you log into the XE Website. Enter the amount you want send to whomever in what currency. They give you a quote that is good for about 60 seconds. If you confirm you want to continue, your money is taken from you linked account, i.e. checking and sent to whomever in the currency you selected.

You can also play the market now. If you think the market is going to move in your favor. Enter the amount of money you want to transfer and at what exchange rate you want this transaction to occur. If the market moves and that rate occurs, your money is withdrawn from your linked account and sent to whomever you specified.

Hope this helps?
