I’ve both been paid and paid for a bus using a bank transfer. The BACS method cost about £20 but gave peace of mind for both sides. Money was in almost instantaneously. I’d have no problem doing it again.

I paid for mine via BAC's in two hits.

No problem, safest & quickest way. If transferring from a european account wont be instantaneous as if uk to uk bank.
Dont release until funds are clear in your account.
