Western Union & paypal are fast but the currency rate is not that good.
Try those remittance firm in china town and you can easily save up to 50-80 with $1000 of transaction.

Just an observation, how much does your goods have to be worth before customs tax you?

I've been importing frequently small quantities of items from Japan to save me on tax, anyone?

With Paypal, both paying and receiving party need to register with Paypal. If there is any dispute, like goods not receive, Paypal can help to claim back the money. Check it out www.paypal.com
