Interac e-Transfer®* for business


Whether you’re paying multiple suppliers or invoicing clients for a service, Interac e-Transfer is a convenient way for your business to send instant payments within Canada. All you need is your recipient’s email address or account number.


  • Funds arrive within seconds when you send an e-Transfer to an account number or to an email address set up for Autodeposit at participating institutions.
  • Send funds to up to 50 recipients at once manually or using payment templates. If you use File Transfer Facility (FTF) you can upload up to 100,000 payments in one file.
  • Access a shared company-wide recipient list and skip having to manually add a recipient to multiple users’ lists.
  • Add reference details to your e-Transfers, such as invoice information, to make it easier to identify the purpose of a payment.


Interac e-Transfer is ideal for non-frequent payments, for things like payroll for temporary staff, insurance claim payouts, company rebates and emergency fund disbursements.
