    is escrow a option? the fee's maybe a bit high but you can fund it via bank transfer.

    I regularly have several thousand dollars transferred to my paypal account at one time... perhaps if that is not good use western union or moneygram?

    If you have BoA and the person you're sending money to has BoA, you can do an instant transfer which is extremely useful. No fees or delays. You can also do a direct deposit if domestic or a wire if international.

    I guess it all depends on where you are sending the money. If there's issues with PayPal then I would just do a bank transfer, if that doesn't work you can always fedex cash lol.

    Escrow or Wire are usually best - depends how well you know them. I wouldn't trust Paypal with an amount over $1k.

    i will probably do the bank transfer also. I dont feel comfortablw with paypal if the amounts are big. I am thinking of getting a visa and connect everything bank account and paypal. Thank you everyone for the answers.
