Saving for university tuition and books can be a daunting task. Meet Juliann, a University of Toronto undergraduate student studying to become a psychoanalyst. Juliann always felt like a natural around kids and enjoyed spending time with little ones. Now, she’s turning that connection to children into a babysitting side hustle — to help pay for her post-secondary education.
Juliann gets paid for her babysitting jobs primarily through Interac e-Transfer. It’s her favourite way to get paid. “I like Interac e-Transfer because it’s fast, it’s convenient, it’s safe and it’s easy — it’s just a no-brainer,” she explains.
The fastest and most convenient way to get paid for a side hustle
Juliann explains that it’s too easy (and frustrating) to lose or misplace cash, but “with Interac e-Transfer that just doesn’t happen.” She adds that cash in hand is also a lot more tempting to spend. With Interac e-Transfer, her payments are deposited directly into her account. That means it’s easier for her to save and keep track of the money that she’s earned. “Interac e-Transfer helps me save for my education,” she says.
Juliann can also automate the process for even faster payments, with features like Interac e-Transfer Autodeposit and Interac e-Transfer Request Money.
By enabling Autodeposit, money transfers are automatically deposited straight into her account — no security question or answer needed. With fewer steps, it’s a more efficient way to get paid, and leaves time for her to do more of what she loves.
With the Request Money feature, Juliann can avoid the awkwardness of asking parents for money they owe her. In just a few clicks, she’s able to send a request so they can easily pay her from their debit account. That also helps Juliann remember who has paid her and who hasn’t, so she can manage her budget better.
Staying in control of your money to pursue your dreams
When it comes to getting paid for her babysitting side hustle and saving for university, there’s nothing easier, faster or more secure than using Interac e-Transfer. Parents can conveniently pay Juliann by sending money anytime, anywhere. The payment instantly goes into her account, and the digital paper trail helps her spend less time managing money. The best part? Juliann has more time to study and pursue her dreams of becoming a psychoanalyst. “After I graduate, I want to apply for my master’s degree, and hopefully after that I can become a licensed psychanalyst,” she sums up with a smile, “[Interac e-Transfer] helps me in what I want to become later in life.”
