How you’re in charge with Interac e-Transfer for Business
We get it. Quick money transfers are the lifeline of business cash flow. That’s why more companies are moving away from traditional payment methods like cheques and EFTs. They take time away from serving your customers and expanding your business.
By digitizing your online and in-person business payments, you can save time and energy on payroll and cheque reconciliation. To digitally pay employees and vendors, all you need is a phone number or an email address, along with a Canadian bank account. It’s that easy, and creates a digital “paper trail” that makes tracking transactions simple.
With rich remittance data, higher transaction limits, and fast money transfers with instant confirmation, Interac e-Transfer for Business meets the needs of Canadian business owners.
