Send Money with Interac e-Transfer

Interac e-Transfer

Save time, effort and money

Want to send money to your child, landlord, co-worker or a friend? If your recipient has a bank account at a Canadian financial institution, you can send money any time by using the Interac e-Transfer service in RBC Online Banking(1) or the RBC Mobile(1) app.

It's easier than cheques, more secure than cash, and is FREE for all personal chequing accounts(3). No need for stamps, envelopes or mailboxes. Plus you may be able to send up to $10,000 CAD per day.(2)

  • It's SIMPLE. All you need is the recipient's name and email address or mobile phone number.
  • It's CONVENIENT. Quickly and easily send money using the Interac
    e-Transfer service, including sending by email or text message.
