Hi! I generally use a certified bank draft that most any bank will issue in Euros or Pounds or whatever. There is generally a charge for the check, with an exchange rate that is certainly in their favor, but the convenience is great. (if you are as old as I am, they may waive the charge ) The check is may be cashed at any bank in whatever country.

I've used Direct Wire Transfer through my bank. Ask your bank manager
exactly what information you will need from the seller. That's how I pay for bikes and other purchases over $100 when PayPal isn't an option.
