Payment to Ukraine has always been an issue. I used to send payments via PayPal, but PayPal no longer works in Ukraine. Two years ago we moved to Western Union. I’m pretty sure Western Union is about the worst service out there; I have never not had an issue with them. However, sending the last payment was the final straw: five calls and 25 days before being told my payment was canceled, no reason cited.
I’d had enough. The developer (also completely frustrated) suggested I send him an Amazon gift card. It had never occurred to me that even in Ukraine Amazon is ubiquitous.
