Interac® e-Transfer is a simple, convenient, and secure way to send and receive money directly from one bank account to another. All you need is access to Meridian’s online or mobile banking, and you can send money to anyone with an email address or mobile phone number and a bank account in Canada — without sharing any financial information. It's a great alternative to cheques and cash.

How Interac e-Transfers work:

  • Confirm the information and complete the transfer


How your Interac e-Transfer is protected 

When you send money using Interac e-Transfer, your money never actually travels by email or text message.

Your financial institution and your recipient’s financial institution transfer funds using established and secure banking procedures.

The fee for sending an Interac e-Transfer is $1.25. There is no fee for receiving an Interac e-Transfer.
