Pay Employees and Vendors

The Pay Employees and Vendors service allows you to use RBC Royal Bank Online Banking for Business to make electronic payments to employees, vendors and others at any financial institution in Canada.


  1. You can make up to $5,000 in payments daily, as long you have sufficient available funds in your account. Need a higher limit? Choose our optional enhanced security feature.
  2. Move funds in Canadian or U.S. dollars
  3. Easily manage your payments with:
    • Employee and vendor payment lists
    • Detailed payment reporting with export capability
    • Currency conversion done automatically at competitive rates
  4. Email notification
    • You will receive an email each time payments are processed and completed. As well, you will receive an email to advise you of returned payments.
    • You may choose whether or not an email will be sent to your payee on the day the funds are to be credited to your payee's account.
    • For privacy reasons, banking information will not be included in automated emails.
