Pre-Arranged Bill Payments / Transfers

You Have Better Things to Do with Your Time Than Paying the Bills.

Would you like the freedom of having your bill payments taken care of from month to month? Or never having to worry about all those day-to-day "back home" expenses when you travel?

Whether you're at home or away, you can arrange to have payments and transfers made at a pre-determined frequency on specified dates. This can even be a one-time payment or transfer. Pay heating and hydro bills, magazine subscriptions or other regular expenses.

Although you have several options for setting up pre-authorized payments, the easiest method is through RBC Online or Telephone Banking. Consider the benefits:

  • Acceptance: Pay bills to over 10,000 companies. See the bills you can pay with Online and Telephone Banking.
  • Simplicity: Once you add a company to your Payee List (in Online Banking) you can make a payment in 3 easy steps.
  • Speed: Payments made before 6 p.m. on business days are processed the same day and can be canceled same day (before 6 p.m.) if an error is made.
  • Convenience: Make a payment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere. No postage, no line-ups, no hassles.


Overdraft Protection can ensure that you always have enough funds to pay your bills.
