By this bank-to-bank account transfer, no actual cash is exchanged, but the electronic balances are adjusted accordingly in their respective accounts.

What if one does not have access to a bank account?

A cash wire transfer is viable .The money is paid at the bank and at the time of the disbursement of funds, the recipient produces the identification.Cash wire transfers are costly and moreover they do have certain drawbacks. During a purchase transaction a seller can supply false information to the sender of the cash wire transfer, collect the cash at the receiving end under the false ID, and diaappear without delivering the products.
