I requested a payment from StockXpert and it took 11 days to get a payment notification saying they had sent a check. It's been another 11 days and still no check. Doesn't seem like it should take this long for a check to go from Hungary to the US. Only takes 4 days for a letter to make it to Germany.

For those who have requested checks before, how long did it take to receive it?

Im from Croatia , and we are neighbors with Hungary , so aprox same distance to USA . When I was still requesting cheques it took about a week from the day they were sent from USA till they arrived in Croatia. Well thats the opposite direction , but it should be the same.

I never had a check sent from SX , so I cant help you there , but  I had few Moneybookers payment from them and they were  always on time , at least in my case.

Still no check but I did get a response from them...

"I am sorry but it takes quite a long time to send checks since both the
American and the Hungarian department checks them.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding!"

So I guess what we've learned from this is StockXpert is not the place to request a check from.

Although Paypal sucks I guess I will from now on considering I can't get them to tell me if the check has indeed been sent or not.

Other than countries that dont allow paypal, what is wrong with it.  I dont have any issues with it.  Money goes in money goes out all at no cost.  i have to transfer from USD to another currency and I am not sure what their forex rate is but other than that, it is totally free and a lot easier than chq.

I have to exchange the $$ to norwegian Kr.  and the exchange rate is pretty crummy.  however cashing a cheque isn't free either.  There is also things that can be boughten with american $$ and paypal, so not all the funds end up being exchanged to norwegian kr.

Leaf, just send the money to your mom, you'll lose less in the exchange rate   ;)

Just to add closure to this... I did receive the payment via check though not without some irregularities. The check I received didn't come from Hungary, it came from the East Coast of the US from the parent company Jupiter Images. The envelope was postmarked more than a month after they said it was sent. The postmark was also after I had told them to consider the check lost, cancel it, and issue a new one which they said they would.

Still uneasy about the situation I contacted them to make sure this was the new check because I didn't want any charges from my bank for attempting to deposit a canceled check. They told me they didn't cancel the check, as they agreed to, and this was the original check.

So, on the up side I have the check. On the down side, It took over 2 months to get, they didn't tell the truth about when it was sent, they didn't tell the truth about canceling/reissuing, and they answered less than half of my attempts to contact them.

Since when is cashing a cheque not free? What kind of bank doesn't cash checks for their customers?

when the cheque comes from out of country it isn't free.

Technically, I believe we can say that the bank do not charge to cash a cheque, but for the currency exchange.  I don't know if this is everywhere, but here there are taxes charged to money exchange, be it cash or TC or cheque.

Regards,
Adelaide
