Despite the name “Interac e-Transfer”, money is not sent through e-mail. E-mail is only used to notify us that we can access the funds through the security of online banking. The funds are transferred through established banking channels that have been employed for years, like the method banks use for cashing cheques. Your banking details are not given to us—just like using a cheque.
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s how it works:
Sign-in to your online banking account at your bank’s website.
Select bill payments and then “Interac e-Transfers”.
Specify the amount for the payment. To determine this amount, use our order form here.
Provide the name and e-mail address of the recipient in this case email@example.com
Type “I want to order” for the security question, and make especially sure the answer to the security question is “lobster”. We will not be able to complete the transaction otherwise.
Submit your transfer request and an e-mail notification will then be sent to us to collect the funds.
It takes 15-20 minutes for us to receive the funds then your shipment is profiled.
