Wire Transfer Shops

I would like to hear some feedback on doing wire transfer shops. I have not yet done one but I keep getting massed blitz by sassie shop schedulers to sign up.

Are they difficult?
Do you recommend them?
Have you ever lost money doing them?

I've only done them with Bare. The only ones I would recommend are the ones that they assign you a partner.

Havent heard great things about the ones you do by yourself..

While I had a great experience doing the partner ones, I have heard other people who did not have such a great experience.

Shopping Idaho and Oregon/Idaho border region.
Are you talking send and cancel? I've never done that one. Or are you talking send and receive with a partner assigned by the MSC? If those are back, I'll take all of them I can get.
I did send and cancel with the old MSC. It took them months to reimburse me. They are why the current MSC stresses that you will be reimbursed in a reasonable time frame.

I only do the inquiry shops.

Not worth the fee.

Seriously, nobody cares that you're offended.

(Yes, I stole Hoju's tagline.)
I've done a handful (send and cancel; bribe the agent), but it's been a while. The bribes were easy (though I always wondered if I was going to have an awkward conversation with the police as I was leaving...). The send and cancel shops were pretty hit-and-miss. If I got a competent person, they were not a problem and worth the time as a filler shop. However, a bad person could ruin my routes for the rest of the day. I have had two go sideways - one of which took over an hour.

Edited to add: I always got my money back on the day that I sent it.

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.

I did one about a month ago. I don’t think I’d do another. I just got reimbursed the $5 wire transfer fee, but this shop just didn’t feel right to me.
That's because you have a conscience.
