Best way to Transfer $ from USA to Pakistan

What is the best and economical way to transfer dollars from USA to Karachi, Pakistan without using Western Union.

Wire Transfer or Bank Transfer

wire transfer is safe and cheap.

Both are expensive and Money conversion will be lower than open market rate.

Why not open a $ account here ? , there will be no conversion issue then.

Ok, any other option...

Alert pay etc ?

WU is charging 12$ now adays on money transfer from North America to Pakistan. Conversion rate is fairly good. Thats the best option

$12 on certain amount or fixed rate?

I think conversion rate is -3Rs/$

exchange rate according to inter bank rates like today open market rate for USD is 85.15 and inter bank rate is 84.90

I know about Interbank and Open Market rates. Do we have to pay any tax in wire transfer?
