    Hi again

    You should know that it is not me you are buying the parts from, but a company in the USA. I am in Australia. 

    They accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover,and Paypal. They also accept money orders and cheques

    It is your choice on how you transfer money to Vintage Electronics.  I suggest that you email them to find out how they would like you to pay. I am sure that you could pay as a bank to bank transfer, although I do know that this sort of service done by the bank could cost you $15 or so. If you can do it online  electronically yourself (I can do this with my bank) then the fees are minimal. Hope this has cleared up the issue for you. Happy to answer any further questions you may have.
