How to Make an Interac E-Transfer

What is an Interac E-Transfer?

Interac e-Transfer (formerly Interac Email Money Transfer) is a convenient way to send, request and receive money directly from one bank account to another. All you need is access to online or mobile banking through a participating financial institution, and you can send or request money to anyone with an email address and a bank account in Canada — without sharing any personal financial information.  Most Canadians who use online banking can send funds. Interac E-transfer are fast and secure.

How does it work?

An e-Transfer resembles an e-check in many respects. The money is not actually transferred by e-mail. Only the instructions to retrieve the funds are.  Once the sender sends the “transfer” to the corresponding email address, the receiver will receive an email to retrieve the funds. Once complete, the sender will receive a verification from the bank that the funds has been transferred by email.
