I worked for a company based in the United States as part of a non-commercial activity (I mean the income is not taxable to the IRS and thus I can’t get an itin or ssn in order to open a bank account). I need to receive several ach vouchers from them.
I’m currently in France and I have no plan to get a visa to come to the United States in the current decade.
The company only pays through regular ACH voucher over usps: they use an automated system. It’s not possible to negotiate anything on the payment method. I can’t even ask to merge the vouchers in order to pay less in fees.
It’s a reputable company. It used to be a Hewlett Packard subsidiary for more than 10 years and they acted like this too when they were still part of hp.
On the other hand, I need to relay the voucher to a swift transfer in usd with my name as sender with swift details to an account with an iban number.
