How to set USD as default currency.

I am a Canadian business owner. My business is done 99% in USD paid via wire transfer.

How do I get to have the USD as a default currency? Right now I have to enter each client one by one otherwise QB assumes that is a CAD paying client.

How to set USD as default currency.

Hi there,


Welcome to the QuickBooks Community. I can see the benefit of being able to set USD as your default currency and I'll be glad to point you towards the right path. 


In order to change the currency on the account, click on the Gear icon > Account and Settings > Advanced > from here you can change your default currency. Make sure your changes are saved so they reflect on your account for transactions going forward. 


Give this a try and let me know how you make out. I'll be a message away in case you need anything else.

Utilize the trial version of a backup restore app to minimize the risk before you change the home currency.
