Handling International Payments has become more common with the globalization of business.
This week on the QB ‘Appy Hour we explored international payments, exchange needs, industries and turn-around time with special guest, fellow ProAdvisor Kelly Gonsalves of Totally Booked. Kelly’s firm deals with many clients whose businesses needs include international payments. She walked us through how she is handling clients with international payment needs.
International businesses are everywhere. It’s common for a retail store to purchase goods overseas or an e-Commerce business to have supplies in other countries. Traditionally, bank wires were the only method of fund transfers. Over the years several international payments services have provided an alternative to wire transfers but with a high cost.
Reducing the cost of international payments is one objective these businesses seek to help decrease costs. While you can keep track of exchange rates in QuickBooks Online it can create a bookkeeping nightmare.
Industries and Turn-Around Time of International Payments
This growing need to find a fast and less expensive solution has affected many businesses. While artists may need to sell their goods globally, a manufacturing company may need to order parts. Even contractors many perform services virtually and need a method for accepting international payments.
