    I have a pretty big payment coming up this week from one of my SEO clients. He has paid me in the past through bank wires. But i only get about 60% of the actual money..
    All the other 40% goes in service tax adn wire fees.

    I reside in India, paypal is not an option they have been limiting me for no reasons lately.

    Moneybookers works well in India?
    i was thinking about something like Payoneer? but payoneer takes long time to ship its card to india and I cannot wait that much....

    Does anyone have a solution?

    is it?
    I received some $240 and received only INR 6k [around 150$]
    Iasked the bank they said it got deducted in taxes and wire fess of the issuing bank and the receiving bank, I was like wtf? This can't be real...
    Business cannot flourish in such conditions..... Maybe there was some error somewhere...

    Which bank it is. Wire transfer fees is only applicable to the sender.

    Day before yesterday i got a wire for $750 and my bank only charged 80 rs for conversion charges.

    Switch to some other bank.

    i've been using swreg dot org recently, they are fairly decent.. UI isn't brilliant, but takes money with minimal fees..
