In my own personal experience, and what I've gathered from the dozens of Forumosa threads on this subject, getting money from one country to another is a wire transfer, which costs money. The only exception I've heard of is if you have a huge pile of money in HSBC, they make the process pretty seamless and absorb the fees, making it look like it's the same as online bill pay. You can also read on threads here of people saying they figured out a way to use PayPal to do it, which presumably costs less than a wire transfer. You could also get an ATM card for your account here to someone you trust in the US to withdraw money there and pay your bills, also less expensive than wire transfers.
