Hey guys,

I'm running a digital marketing business based in Canada and I'm going to promote my services to US market. I'm asking for help to answer a few questions:

1. My prices are by default in CAD and they are shown on the website. Do Americans accept to deal with CAD? Is it something normal, awkward or bad? Or should I set up a new USD pricing for them(in an Excel sheet)? What do you advise me to do?

2. What is the best way to collect payment from US businesses to Canadian businesses?

3. My company offers monthly hosting(recurring fees), but the customer can cancel at anytime. Besides the invoice, what kind of papers do I need to provide to US businesses? detailed contract(long 5 page document), short service agreement, any specific document that need to be signed?

Thanks so much for your help

Just like normal, a TOS/RUP/AUP or whatever you have works. I am not sure they need to sign it as digital signatures are pretty expected at this day in age.

Thanks, Ben

I just hope that the questions you have on mind will be answered. It is not that complicated as it is. - Paul Savramis (http://paulsavramis.me/)
