A good fast alternative is c2it, although it will cost you $10, and their exchange rates suck. But the seller will get a bank cheque in euros and he will be happy.

I've found that many French sellers are resistant to Paypal, even when I've offered to pay the commission. I don't understand why they're opposed, especially now that you can specify payment in US dollars, Euros or GBP. I wonder if it's a language thing or just overly complicated for people outside the USA.

he can exchange it, but it will cost him too much (he must have thought that an international money order would be in euros)...i would tell him to send back the MO, and then you will send him the cash (better to do paypal)

I bought an item on eBay France. Prior to bidding, I asked seller if he would accept an international postal money order (USD). He said yes. Now he says he can't exchange it and wants me to send cash. He will send the money order back with the item. Should I be suspicious about his inability to cash the money order?
