I'm in Europe and I have about a dozen foreign clients - some in Europe, some in Latin America, all small. When I have them pay me by wire, my bank takes a hefty fee; same thing for a foreign check. Paypal doesn't seem like a very professional way to request payment.
Does anyone have any other ideas for a payment method?

The most professional way is opening your own internet merchant account. The second place are Western Union or Bank Wire transfer. The third place are PayPal, MoneyBookers, 2Checkout and other well-known u.s. \ European electronic money. And the last way are systems like E-Gold, E-bullion.
I would like to recommend you one company that accepts tens ways of the online payments - it's StraToCash(http://stratocash.com/)

1. Wire Transfer - The best way to do - as Its legal and you can account it easily. You can decide who will pay the transfer fee - You or the client.
2. Paypal - You this also along with Wire transfer. Some customers may want to pay by cards. Paypal will send as Check which will take 10-20 days in some countries. There is a limit to withdraw every month.
3. Other payment gateways like 2CO.
4. Western union - Not a very legal way, you may not be able to account it. But in some countries they help business accounts.
