Ladies and gentleman,

For Canadian citizens to open a US bank account in the United States, all you need are two pieces of identification. You do not need a US mailing address to open a bank account.

Two pieces of ID, driver’s license and passport.

You should look into opening a bank account with a credit card that can give you cashback offers. With all the purchases I make, I can get anywhere from 3-6K back a year.

Depending on the bank you are with, where you make purchases, and when you can cash in on cashback. I would say if you are a general online seller you should at least be getting back $500ish a year with some online credit cards. Just make sure to pay them off. Most people just dont understand the concept of credit cards.

My question would be this ... Can I open bank account without being psychically there. For example... Sending my photo id and passport via fax or email?

Have you also looked at your own Canadian banks that have US facilities?

Options exist

I am not exactly sure what you mean by US facilities. Hmmm. For example ... I had TD canada Trust. Great bank ... Though they charge a lot of fees. Anyways I was thinkng if I could open one in USA because I know they also have TD in US.

Yeah obviously if I could ask the banks on the weekend I wouldn't be asking you MM78 LOL! Why ask anything for that matter if you can call and ask yourself. Come on man... This is why we are all here. To exchange information. Otherwise what is the point to ask anything if you aren't going to get any help

Have you said WHAT banks you are considering using ? NO

Have you said WHY? NO

Now you tell us off for not being able to give you replies to your demands.

You get a fair go with all your questions.

Stop misbehaving

To make you quiet for a bit, some banks may accept online applications, some may not.

Look...... a reply

Your 1st problem will be getting across the border then

Check the Canadian banks. You may be able to get a USA account without leaving Canada.

Should I ask what the Stanislav plan is?

Or read between the lines?


You've run out of Canadian banks & need go to the USA?

Or you are going to sell on ebay.com & are taking the necessary steps?

I haven't run out of Canadian banks but I am always looking for another way to increase my checking accounts. US has a lot of banks, much more than we have here in Canada. I am still going to be using Canadian PayPal to add US checking account

Thank you!
You may want to try Royal Bank of Canada I know they have a branch in the states. Georgia to be exact. The US branches are named RBC Bank.
I am not sure what the rules are now please give them a call to make sure.
In the past you can open a US account directly at the Royal Bank of Canada.
Here is their link and hope this helps.

This is irrelevant, most of these banks cannot receive direct deposits as USD from Paypal because they don't have US divisions.
