Best way to pay a consultant in USA

I need to pay an SEO consultant in USA, and I did a test transaction of $1 to see if transferwise works for this purpose but for whatever reason it rejected it.

What's the most affordable way to do this?
Paypal etc is expensive when FX rate comes to play.

    Transferwise works well for non-trivial amounts. Do it properly.

    When do OzB consultants get paid for the all advice dispensed here?

    WorldRemit or Remitly usually have good rates.

    Are you on budget?

      Just didnt want the full amount in limbo

    I found OFX cheaper than Transferwise the last time I had to send money to USA.

    OFX is good for > $10K
    Transferwise is good for sub 10k if u ask me

    You should try xe.com, I found them to be cheaper than both OFX and Transferwise regardless of the amounts involved

    Could be a scam as I thought all of the SEO experts were based in India - certainly that bombard me with emails every day are.

    OFX has good service for peace of mind

    Or simply hire someone local :) - lot of experienced SEO in Australia.

        A1SEO :D.

        On a serious note, "best" SEO for the project depends on the requirements really. Technical vs. content, on-page vs. off-page, small website vs. enterprise website and so on.
