Pre-sale questions

My business is an online education based in Texas, the US.

My business description is below.

  • My customers are in the US and some other counties all over the world.
  • I am using Woocommerce system to collect fees from customers
  • Most of the teachers are located in China and more than 300 people, most of them working time for my business are lesson 20 hours a week.
  • Pay for them based on the hourly rate, I need to pay them for actual hours only.

My questions are

1. what products are you going to suggest for me?

2. for my case, product payroll is able to make deposits to the US-based bank account, but my venders(contracters)  are based in China. How can I pay them automatically?

3.I can only treat them as contractors because they don't have SSN and are not allowed to work for US-based businesses. I guess. But if I treat them as contractors, pay for them by US$, if they don't pay tax in China. If I have to take responsibility for their behaviors? 

Best Regards!

To help you decide which QuickBooks Online product to choose, you can check out this article: Choose the plan that's right for your business


You can also activate the payroll service inside your existing QuickBooks Online if you want to add the basic payroll option.


To turn it on, please follow these steps:

  2. Click Get Started or Set up Payroll.
  3. Choose the type of service that you want to use.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete setting up your payroll account.


When it comes to paying your vendor in china. I'd suggest you look for a third-party application that can help you with your payments through our App Center. I also recommend consulting your accountant for more tips about handling your contractors accurately.


You can also buy payroll in our Sales website. Access this site to get subscribed for the service: QBO Payroll Pricing.
