INTERAC® e-Transfer

We're pretty sure that the 'e' in e-Transfer stands for easy. After you've used one to send or receive money, you’ll understand why.

Key features

  • Simple, quick and secure way to transfer cash from Coast Online Banking or Coast Mobile Banking.
  • There's no need to set up any new accounts, user IDs or passwords.
  • All account details and financial institutions are kept confidential. All you need to send money is the recipient's mobile phone number or email address.
  • Recipients are notified by email or text message that they have received a payment within approximately 30 minutes from when the transfer is initiated.
  • There is absolutely no fee to receive money via an INTERAC e-Transfer. To send an e-Transfer, a service fee may apply.
