I don't have much experience with Taiwan banks,
But will this work for transferring Taiwan NT to your US bank.
1. You convert NT to US in your Taiwan bank.
2. Buy a cashier's check with your US dollars from the Taiwan bank in US currency.
3. Send it in the mail to your US bank for deposit.
The risk of the check being "lost in the mail" can be mitigated by buying insurance and tracking number for your mail.
And if the mail is ever really lost in the mail, you can use your cashier's check receipt to recover the money.
Aside from the bank's exchange rate, cost of the cashier's check, and the mailing to the US, the total costs for this transfer seems minimal as opposed to Paypal.
Would this work or am I missing something here?
