Anyone in the US found a good way to withdraw earnings from ?

(USD or Euro, I need to do both.)

@joeyh I have been using liberapay to tip you for the last few months.

Seeing you asking this question makes me wonder if this is the best way to send you money.

What do you prefer, which service is giving you the biggest cut?

@ninjatrappeur still to be determined, I do like liberapay, though I wish I knew who my supporters there were (but I understand why it obscures that). Thanks for the support!

Part of my confusion is I don't know if the transfer would come from outside the US, or if Liberapay's payment processor operates inside the US.

Wells Fargo has a SWIFT code for incoming international wires, but Liberapay does not seem to allow entering a SWIFT code for US withdrawals. And its form for an IBAN transfer doesn't let me select my country.

@joeyh We're going to modify the form so you'll be able to try with the SWIFT code:

@joeyh The change has been deployed, you can try a SWIFT payout now.

(And yes, Wells Fargo is approximately the most evil bank ever; I'd drop their account in a hot second if I could wire non-internationally to my local home town bank.)

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.
