INTERAC e-Transfer has two new features, making it even more convenient!

Request Money

You can now send a money request through your app or online banking. It’s an easy way to say "you owe me money" between friends. For businesses, it's an important tool to streamline payments.

How to send and receive an INTERAC e-Transfer:

1. Log into Vermilion Credit Union Internet Banking and navigate to the “Transfers” screen
2. Set up your sender profile and add your recipient – make sure to create a Security Question that only your recipient knows the answer to.
3. Choose how to notify your recipient, the amount you wish to send and which account the funds will be transferred from. You can also choose to send a  special message or memo to your recipient.
4. Send! The funds are debited from your account immediately.
5. Your recipient will receive notification that you have sent them an INTERAC e-Transfer, and will follow the links provided in the email or text message to deposit their funds.
6. Once they have answered the security question correctly, they can deposit the funds immediately – no holds, no hassle!
7. If your recipient’s Financial Institution does not subscribe to the INTERAC e-Transfer service, it’s no problem! They can still receive their funds by following the link to Interac’s Interac Association’s site, at which time they will be asked to create or log into an existing account with Interac Association.
8. Once logged in, Interac Association will proceed to deposit the transfer into their chequing or savings account (which usually takes 3-5 business days). For non-participating financial institution deposits, a service fee will be deducted from the transfer amount.
