The Perfect Gift For The Person Who Has Everything

Wrap it Up

Whether you send your eGift as an e-Transfer or digital prepaid Visa card, you can personalize it with your choice of special occasion wrapping paper.

Add an Augmented Reality Experience or Game

Add an Augmented Reality Experience or mobile game to your eGift to make the unwrapping even more exciting for your recipient.

Create an Adventure

Send your recipient on a treasure hunt for their eGift, such as to their favourite store or restaurant, in order to unlock their present.

How should I send my eGift?

You can choose to send either an Interac e-Transfer or an RBC eGift card as your RBC eGift. The difference is that an Interac e-Transfer is a money transfer that gets deposited into your recipient’s bank account, while the RBC eGift card is a digital prepaid gift card that can be used in-store (where Apple Pay and Visa are accepted) or for online purchases.

How you choose to send the eGift will probably depend on how you think your recipient will want to use the money you send. As cash in the bank or a chance to buy something special?

Sending or Receiving? It’s Easy Either Way.

Sending an eGift

To send money using an RBC eGift, you’ll need:

  • To be the age of majority in your province or territory (to send an RBC eGift Card only)
  • An iOS device (9.0 or later)
  • To be enrolled in RBC Online Banking or an RBC Mobile app.
  • The RBC Wallet app

Note: While you can also get started in the RBC Mobile app2, you will need the RBC Wallet app to send your eGift.

Claiming an eGift

To unwrap and claim your eGift, you’ll need:

  • A valid email address or cell phone number
  • An iOS device (9.0 or later) or Android device (5.0 or later)
  • The RBC eGift app installed on your device. You must register or sign in to receive your gift

Note: You don’t need to be an RBC Royal Bank client to receive an eGift
