So I just went today to make the wire transfer to the bank but they told me the data that BFL gave me was insufficient to make the wire tranfer?

Anyone had the same problem?

Strange...BFL should have sent you the account #, the routing #, bank name and address, account name and associated address. I can't remember what it was called, but I think there was also another number needed for international transfers. That info should suffice for the transfer. What info did your bank say was missing?   

I would think you need the Swift number for international transfers. But that's included in BFLs instructions. Sometimes they want the phone number of the other party (that's on their website). Having done the bank transfer (domestic US), and looking at BFLs transfer instructions, I don't see what could be missing. Could your bank be a little more specific, swissmate?



They sent me Bank name, Bank address, Swift, ABA / Routing, Account Name, Account Number and Account Address.

Apparently that isn't anough.
Anyone knowing bank things or economics knows if that would be enough to make a wire transfer?

Well they should have told what else they need. I'd take all that info plus BFL's phone number back to the bank and demand an explanation for why the info you've provided isn't enough. Sounds to me like you either got an ignorant bank employee or they are just giving you the run around b/c they don't want you to wire funds our of your account for some reason. I'd ask to speak to the branch manager if they are still unwilling to do it for you or can't at least tell you what else they need. Very fishy.
For all my prior wires, I just used the info listed above, they said I didn't need Swift because it was not international. (Bank: Wells Fargo) I am very surprised they did not tell you specifically what was missing. That does not seem right.

While I have not dealt with BFL, I have done many wire transfers in the past.  All of the above information, minus the swift (never wired internationally), was everything I needed to get the money sent.  Very strange.

The 1 thing that was missing from my wire transfer that the bank required was the phone number. Good thing for smart phones so I could look it up at the bank instead of going home and having to call the bank later Smiley

That would have been enough for my bank , didn't they tell you what's missing?

In some countries it's a difficult task to send an international wire for couple of reasons. Some banks simply have no experience doing it (mainly those in small cities), they also may require some paperwork showing what's the money for such as importing products or sending it to a relative. They may also want to see prove that you've already collected taxes on the sum you're sending out, that's the case here in China.

I'm waiting for my Pi as well, but I'm assuming it's as easy as grabbing the source for cgminer and compiling it. Since you don't need any ATI drivers that should remove some steps as well. I think the bigger question will be, how many SC's can the Pi handle?  Grin

It's more than enough information for a wire transfer from Switzerland to the US. If anyone tells it's not, he has no idea. If you have a Post account you can do it with postfinance. Zero problem.

Has BFL said when they will have PayPal processing ready for pre-orders?
I have all of the cash for an SC on a pre-paid credit card for security. I do not want to to a bank transfer, and do not want to use the BTC I have in reserve due to the steadily rising prices. 

They said they were going to add paypal, but its still not on their pre-order page.

The only reason you would want to use a credit card over BTC is for protection against them going belly up and taking your money.  If you use a credit card you have recourse to get your dollars back.

I know how you feel I would like to have that kind of insurance as well.

I know how you feel. But read all about them everywhere, then give them your money.
I did the same and paid by wire. I have no right to complain unless the delivery date lapses without a  product, then I have my right of refund as advised.

You know that refund is only after 60 days post missed deadline, right?  They left themselves lots of wiggle room this time.

Ah yes, derivatives. How can anything go wrong when we add in another counter-party risk?
Anyone selling derivatives that pay out in case Diablo defaults on his obligations to pay back his derivatives?
