    I think so. Looked into this recently and this seemed like the least expensive version of a costly way to pay. Would be interested to hear if others have a better way.

    I simply transfer from my bank to theirs, costed £3 and got a very fair conversion rate. Is this not a possibility from the US?

    Is this cheaper than a direct bank wire?

    ^Fee is $22 from a bank accouny online in the version I used and then the exchange rate is about 2%+ off the market. Believe using a credit catd to fund may be more.

    Also, double check, but I believe you can't send Euros to a Hungarian bank (even to a Euro account) through standard WU. There's another product though that does though via onlinefx.westernunion.com/

    You can send them euros through direct transfer, I did.

    When I transferred Vass money via my bank, it went to a bank account in Brussels.

    Interesting. Are you US based?

    WU will do a EUR ACH transfer to some countries for what I recall as $5, which seems pretty good. Don't know if Belgium is one of them

    Suppose 22/5 isn't that big of a difference when the shoes are $600 or so, but I'd take it.

    Don't know why Vass isn't set up for PayPal. Seems like the logical payment tool for them (other than the fact that with a wire transfer the customer bears all the transaction costs... ). If the shoes turn out to be as nice as I expect I suppose it won't matter.

    The way it works with Vass is: pictures are better than words...just send him this very pic and ask if they can make it for you. Words confuse these guys...theyre artisans not linguists.

    I have a very wide foot and I found AFPOS stocks the AS Templar in patent leather which is the best pair of patent leather shoes I have ever owned. If you are after patent leather, then try AFPOS

    Great shoe, though a bit odd with only four eye lets.
    What last?
