Now that we have expanded our international payments capability, as of December 15, 2020 we will be retiring the international checks feature for customers that still have it.
We do not take the decision to retire features lightly. We believe the inability to track checks sent to international vendors adds unnecessary risks to both our business and yours.
We are delighted to share our enhanced features for international payments that will improve your payment process:
- Electronic payments available for 137 countries, with most clearing in 1-3 business days.
- Competitive exchange rates and no wire transfer fees when you pay in local currency.
- Invitations now available to all 137 countries for vendors to be able to enter their own bank information so you don’t have to.
International Check Mailing time
The estimated Arrival date for an international check payment is based on the following US Postal Service guidelines:
- Canada and Mexico: 10 business days from the process date.
- All other international addresses: 15 business days from the process date.
- Note: Since International mail is processed by both the US Postal Service and the vendor's local postal service, there can be delivery delays outside the guidelines provided here. The US Postal Service does not guarantee delivery dates within their guidelines.
