Yeah, unfortunately, when dealing in the realm of super crazy rarities, you sometimes have to bend over backwards for the seller. Sometimes even forward, if the item is cool enough. ;)

Shit. I think 80×80 is right. Let me check the MB size.

just take a pic you like that will look good small and shrink and save it to your computer. in paint and those kind of programs you can usually check the size.

you do need a pic. it spiffys up your posts and makes them more noticeable. :wink:

iban = international bank account number
bic / swift = bank identifier code

these codes are standardized, and used to make payments within europe. very easy, because now you no longer have to worry about the format of foreign bank account numbers.

i don’t know if you can make a payment using these two numbers when you’re in the united states. i imagine making a bank transfer from the usa to a european account will be expensive, no matter if you use iban/bic or another way to identify the seller’s bank account. more info at your bank, i guess.

Ugh. Still trying to pay for this freaking item. BUT, I have it all figured out now. For anyone’s information, you need the following to send a payment internationally, using IBAC/BIC:

Receiving Bank Name
Receiving Bank Address
IBAC
BIC – Also referred to as a SWIFT #
Recipients Name
Recipients Address

I’m told by my bank that these are required by Federal laws, so there is no getting around it. It’s just that the seller and I are on two different continents, so our back and forth emails take a day each. I’ve walked into that bank twice now, without enough information. But, third times a charm!!!!
