Anyone know of any other alternatives (besides OTC)??
I know its kinda OTC, but I can get you a VISA card that can be loaded from your EUR Intersango balance.
Just for now one card for testing and reporting to the group how it went - free of charge, just message me delivery address if interested. Just one card free, for the first person who asks.
Of course the card is shipped empty.
I admit that I didn't test it yet.
If it all works out well I might later sell them for about 3 BTC (cards are probably valid about 2 years).
Balance would appear on the card as soon as withdrawal is done by Intersango (usually once a day) - balance appears on the card instantly if funded from a Bank Zachodni WBK account during hours Mon-Fri 05:00-21:00 and Sat 05:00-16:00 (Central European Time).
No loading fees and no Intersango 5 PLN withdrawal fee as its the same bank as they have (so no SEPA needed).
Limit per single transaction: 150 EUR
Max card balance: 750 EUR
Max total yearly load: 2500 EUR
ATM withdrawal fee: 2.50 EUR
Transaction in currency other then EUR: Visa exchange rate + 2.8% (total about 3% from spot).
That can be checked http://www.visaeurope.com/en/cardholders/exchange_rates.aspx
by entering 2.8 in the field "Enter conversion fee (0-5%):"
But the date is the date of settlement, usually about 2 days after transaction, so exact exchange rate can't be known in advance.
Not possible to "unload" funds from the card other then paying with it or in ATM.
