Anyone know of the least and best way to wire money from the United States to Mainland China, actually wiring the funds to Nanning, Guangxi, China? Also how much time should I permit for the funds to be deposited into Xiang's account?

I use iKobo to send money to China, takes about 10 days to set up, they send a rechargeable Visa debit card to the the person in the other country, and I can put money on the card any time I want. Allows only $500 per month unless you apply to increase the limit. Money can be withdrawn at any Bank of China ATM.


Other method is to use Western Union.


More expensive than iKobo, funds can be picked up at most banks over there.
