Request a Payment
Never again will you need to awkwardly ask a friend for that pizza money they still owe you – just send a request for payment through INTERAC e-Transfer! Request a payment through your online banking or the Affinity Mobile app in the same way you would to send a transfer. The person you’re requesting payment from will receive an email or text message allowing them to fulfil the request.
Make managing your incoming transfers more convenient – register your email address with INTERAC and all transfers sent there will autodeposit to an account of your choosing. Don’t worry about losing track of your deposits – you’ll get a notification every time a transfer lands in your account. You can register for autodeposit through your Affinity online banking.
Instant INTERAC e-Transfer
All transfers of $250 or less will send instantly, without any delay once you hit the ‘Send Transfer’ button. Within a 24-hour period you’ll be able to instantly send up to $500 by INTERAC e-Transfer.
There’s an exception to these rules if you’re sending money to someone you already have a transfer history with. In this case, you’ll be able to transfer as much as $3,000 instantly.
Starting November 1, 2017, there’s no fee to send or receive an INTERAC e-Transfer from a Youth, Unlimited or 65+ account. Members with other account types will be charged $1 per transfer. A transfer counts as an electronic debit, so you may be charged an additional fee depending on the type of account you have and how many transactions you’ve completed that month. Fees for requested payments aren’t charged until the payment’s fulfilled.
Sign in to online banking to send an INTERAC e-Transfer. If you’ve got questions, or if you don’t have online banking, call our Contact Centre at 1.866.863.6237 to get set up.
