Independent Contractor in Canada

I need to pay an independent contractor in Canada and I am located in the US. Can I do this with direct deposit to their Canadian checking account?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!


I used to go to the bank and order Foreign drafts but none of my local banks (included US Bank and Wells Fargo) can do this anymore. 


Thank you in advance

Good Morning @RoxieO,


Thanks for posting your question in the QuickBooks Community!

We do have an option to pay foreign vendors via Bill Pay. I’m including a link for you to check out: Send international payment using Bill Pay. I know this isn’t exactly what you are looking for, but I wanted to give you an option.

At this time international bank accounts can’t be used for employee or contractor direct deposits. International ACH transactions have strict reporting requirements that we don’t support.


Let me know if you have any more questions about the payments, or anything else. I’ll be here.


Happy Friday!
