It is? I think you would be surprised at how much even the financial
services world still revolves around those old fashioned things. *(Or by
money transfer, do you mean point of sale purchase?)
*Disclaimer* *Our financial services industry here in Canada might be
considered a bit... quaint, by some.
Fortunately for you Canadians that "quaintness" mitigated a lot of the damage to your banks brought on by the "financapocalypse".* Not saying you were completely spared, but you're in a better place than a lot of countries because of that.
