How do I add the address of a foreign vendor? It only allows USA data format.

Thanks for joining the Community, thill5647.

I want to ensure you’re able to smoothly add your foreign vendor using a non-US data format.

Before proceeding, make sure you’re currently using QuickBooks Online Essentials or Plus. If so, turn on the Multicurrency feature first .

Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the top.
  2. Under Your Company, choose Account and Settings.
  3. Click the Advanced tab on the left panel.
  4. Click on the Pencil icon for Currency, then choose your Home Currency.
  5. Select the Multicurrency box to turn the feature on, then choose Save.
  6. Click on Done.

Next, begin the process of adding your vendor. Let me walk you through the steps.


  1. Go to Expenses on the left panel, then choose Vendors.
  2. Select New vendor.
  3. Enter the vendor's name and other information.
  4. From the I pay this vendor with drop-down, select the appropriate currency. This is the currency that you use to pay for this vendor’s products and services.
  5. Choose Save.

After following the resolution, the vendor should now added to your account.

For information on adding a foreign vendor in a form, I recommend the following article: How to add foreign vendors with their corresponding currency.

Then make sure to go directly to the How to add a foreign vendor in a form for detailed instructions.

Please let me know if I can ever of further assistance. I’ll get back to help. Have a great day ahead!
