Are you saying that doing wire transfers in Europe is common, or doing
wire transfers to pay for online goods? I'm glad to hear it is less
of a horrendous experience, but it still feels like a suck idea to
make customers jump through an additional hoop on their own, and
expect them to correctly (and without error) copy/paste the correct
amount from the order confirmation into a bank transfer form. If you
suggest writing a script to automate this: it is suck to suggest
customers write software to uniquely interact with your web site.
