As we are increasingly having clients outside of Canada, we have decided to offer PayPal as a payment option to pay for our services.
We recently did some consulting work for a client in France and, when it came time to settle our invoice, we were shocked to learn how complex it was to setup an international bank transfer payment to Canada from their end. The irony? They were dealing with a bank that vaunts its international savvy in large billboards at most of the major airports around the world.
It’s a bit surprising that the large banks, with all their significant resources, have not kept up with the times and are being outflanked by the simple PayPal service. From a personal perspective, but now also now for business-to-business use, PayPal is becoming indispensable.
