I was getting a monthly cheque issued by the UBS in Zürich (on instructions from the principal in another country) who mailed it to me in Nyon. Every month I took it to my UBS branch in Nyon who charged me f20 to cash it.

As their instructions were to issue a cheque the couldn’t just put it into my account.

I eventually got the payer to do a bank transfer but it took a few months.

Fortunately, in this case, the money was available immediately.

Switzerland doesn’t do cheques.
It was only CHF 20 as it was a Swiss bank check, US have always run me 40-50. Pay-Pal is better.
