International "Card to Card Transfer" - How to do legitimately
Last edited 13/01/2018 - 12:07
I'm trying to pay for a booking (accommodation) I have made which is in Russia.
The reservations team of ostrovok.ru (the Russian booking.com) have asked me to pay by 'card to card transfer' and have only provided a 16 digit credit card number.
After many emails, they still seem adamant that this is all I need to pay them.
Question is: how can I make this payment in a more legit way than sendmoney24.com or something?
Has anyone has experience with websites that do these kind of payments? Can I use Western Union or Transferwise or similar?
Ideally, I'd rather pay through my own CC or debit card bank, but can't seem to find how to do that on their websites.
Commbank believes I could do so by BPAY but I need a biller code also.
For reference, I only need to send about AU$80.
