It would be cheapest if Wikimedia itself could process

Well, we'll be accepting credit cards directly, but my understanding,
which is limited at this point, is that people were saying that
Europeans often don't have credit cards. Anthere reports that the
French do, but other reports have suggested (if I understood) that
Germans mostly don't?
It seems like the easiest thing would be for me to open a bank account
in Germany for the purpose of accepting bank transfers from Europeans.
If someone could direct me to a web page in English of a bank that
could do this, that'd be great.
Possibly one of the bigger multinational financial institutions, like
Citibank, would be the best for this, as they are presumably well
prepared to handle such international situations.
