Apply HST? - Mailing address is aboard but paid using Canadian bank account

What are your thoughts on HST being applicable to this invoice.
Customer is aboard, using a mailing address is aboard but paid using Canadian bank account via e-transfer.

I assume you mean "abroad"?

There's nothing stopping a foreign company from having a Canadian bank account to make payments. We have a U.S. bank account to make payments in the U.S. more conveniently, but that doesn't make us a U.S. company for tax purposes.

GST/HST depends on the location of the receiver of the products or services, not where they pay you from.
