Update on this, I tried the withdrawal to Wells Fargo's SWIFT; it was rejected with "please contact our Finance Team", which sounds like a Wells Fargo kind of thing to say, so I think that @Liberapay's changes are working to some extent.
Still yet to see the money. I'll go talk to the Wells Fargo international transfers division now, ugh.
Wells Fargo bank can only accept transfers of USD to their SWIFT.
To transfer Euro to them, it has to go via an intermediary bank (Deutschebank), with the beneficiary bank and their SWIFT, and my account name and account number all included in the transfer instructions.
I also tried Transferwise; to send Euros to my account there, the transfer has to include a reference number that they provide.
No way to do any of that with the #Liberapay form, so my EUR is stuck currently.
@joeyh I wonder if we had a USD denominated librepay like thing entity in the US if they could have enough people wanting Euros to run a private currency exchange trade with liberpay
@alienghic we could even write a protocol for such things, perhaps with some kind of distributed ledger...
@joeyh noooo! I'm pretty sure a memorandum of understanding between two non profits with good accounting practices would work just fine. ;)
@joeyh Actually that error message is from our payment processor. We've just emailed them to request details and instructions on what we should do.
