Plastiq Now Services International Payments to Businesses in Many Countries (EU, Mexico, Canada, Thailand, Australia, Turkey and many more)

[Update 9/1/19: They’ve now added support for wires to the European Union, Mexico, Canada, Thailand, Australia, Turkey.]

Comments closed because people can’t seem to remotely stay on topic.

[Update 8/6/19: They’ve now added India, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Canada, and the United Kingdom.]

Plastiq officially launches today their servicing international payments to businesses in China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. They started this last month as a test feature done selectively. Starting today, it’s a self-service feature anyone can do from within their Plastiq account. Payments process via wire only. Standard wire fees apply; $50 for international wire + 2.5%.

Plastiq Blog Post

I image there are quite a few Amazon sellers who have suppliers overseas, so this might be an interesting way of racking up points on those business purchases. Plastiq also promises to be adding more countries in the future, and you can email them about processing transactions to other countries already now.

Check out our Plastiq review here. If you’re new to Plastiq, here’s my Plastiq referral link – you’ll get $500 in free processing after doing $500 in paid processing.

Updated full list of countries serviced by Plastiq through international wire:

  • European Union (EU)
  • South Korea
  • Mexico
  • Japan
  • Canada
  • Thailand
  • China
  • India
  • Singapore
  • Australia
  • Hong Kong
  • Turkey
  • Taiwan

@ Chuck
Hong Kong is part of the China. THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM TAIWAN VS MAINLAND CHINA, where there is controversy whether Taiwan is independent or not. Hong Kong vs China is more like Taxes vs USA or Catalonia vs Spain. Please fix this as this is really not respectful and wrong.

David,
personal views about if HK should be part of China or not aside:
Many Texans would be just fine with TX vs USA… just FYI. the only disrespect in that scenario could be classing TX as part of the US.
I’ll also point out that if you know any Catalans your second example is worse still — those that I know will likely strongly disagree with the 2010 ( or was it 2011?) Spanish courts ruling and would be happy to see their status as a nation as enshrined in their legal documents upheld. Believe me…. I’ve heard QUITE a lot about it from ACTUAL Catalans.

David
David

Yes. I am trying to say is that why don’t the western world list TX or Catalonia along with the US or Spain but only Hong Kong?

JMR0303
JMR0303

Because it’s not like TX. Go look at drop-down lists used by websites in “the western world” and you’ll notice that “United States” and “United States Minor Outlying Islands” are separate, for instance.

Catalonia had declared Independence from Spain but was forcefully crushed.

Many Texans would be just fine with TX vs USA. Does this mean that many Hong Kong people are just fine with HK vs. China?

Yes, you are right. There are so MANY Hongkongese who are fine with HK vs China.

Hong Kong has an independent legal and financial system and is essentially a different jurisdiction from mainland China when foreign companies look at the market. It makes perfect sense to list it separately.

It’s like saying it’s disrespectful to list Gibraltar separately from the UK or American Samoa separately from the US. They’re technically part of the other but there is a meaningful distinction. In fact, probably a larger distinction in HK vs. China than in Gibraltar, American Samoa, etc.

Hong Kong is a special administrative region. This is not mean sovereignty. Its two different concept.

CathayFlyer

Hong Kong is a part of China, but it is a special administrative region. HK has it own currency that is freely tradable, and mainland Chinese visitors need to request a travel permit to go there. Your Texas and Catalonia examples don’t apply here, stop looking to be offended. Your confusion over HK status is disrespectful to HK people.

David
David

I think the special administrative policy will end in 30 years…..after that it’s essentially the same as Taxes or Catalonia…I think it is you who are confused and know nothing about HK….

Agree! Let’s wait til it comes true after 30 years. Now it is totally right that Hongkong vs China. Maybe 30 years later, HongKong has already been “truly” VS China. Fight For Freedom!

It seems that not only these three “countries/regions” are eligible, as the blog post says make payment to anywhere in the world, and there’s a contact email for “immediate need of international payments to other than CN, HK and SG.”

Also wondering what form of payment will they use. Check is not popular at all in these places.

NO! Many people know that Taiwain is NOT an independent country but a province of China! By EVERYONE, you strictly mean that each and every single person in this planet knows that Taiwan is an independent country. If there is ever one person does not know that, your statement is not true.

I think it’s not too hard to really GOOGLE (I suppose you are in the FREE internet world) the exact document between US and China.
Nowhere did US mentioned that Taiwan is part of China (PRC), and I don’t think it’s anytime likely the government would acknowledge Taiwan is part of China. US policy is always recognizing the “One China Policy”, and not to get involved in the matter between the strait.

Xinqing Wang

Nowhere did US mentioned that Taiwan is part of China (PRC)? What does the following statement mean?

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-China_policy#U.S._policy

Acknowledge in this sense means the U.S. recognizes China’s view point, but does not make a statement on agreeing or disagreeing.

Acknowledging is agreeing. Please reference the dictionary.

HK and TW both have independent legal and financial systems, and they own different currencies. They also have their own passport. Chinese visitors from mainland even need to request a travel permit to go there. How can you say they are part of China? DO NOT be cheated by the government. How shame you are!

fuzhouren

This is regarding sovereignty. A country can have dual legal systems and dual currencies. That does not implied different sovereignty. See Iraq vs Kurdistan, europe vs greece.

Again, different legal and financial systems do not mean sovereignty. Hong Kong’s different system is granted by the Chinese constitution. If texas wants to join the Chinese republic. China can also grant you a different legal and financial status per texas’s request.

I am new to Plastiq. Is the referral promotion still going on for fee-free-dollars? If so, can someone refer me? I am trying to pay off 1,124.00 of tuition this year and would like to do this through my CC without a fee.

-Thanks,
