Before the advent of electronic payment systems, people had to rely on slow mail or expensive wire transfers to send and receive cash. However, with the advent of Interac e-Transfers, transferring money between accounts can be done quickly and easily with just a few clicks on a computer or mobile device.

Once the sender hits the "send" button, how long will the e-Transfer take to complete?  

In this article, we will discuss Interac e-Transfers in greater depth, including how they function and how long it typically takes for money to be deposited into a bank account.

How Much Time Does It Take To Get An Electronic Transfer?  

The speed with which an Interac e-Transfer can be sent and received makes it a strong contender for the title of "fastest way to In most cases, the time between a transfer's sending and its recipient's receipt is negligible. Electronic transfers typically take less than a minute, but in rare instances can take up to half an hour.  

The time it takes to receive money via e-Transfer can vary depending on a few factors.   

Standard Email Transfer with Verification Question

In order to ensure that you are the intended recipient of an e-Transfer, most services will ask you to answer a security question. This additional action will lengthen the duration of the e-Transfer procedure by a few seconds.  

Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer with Automatic Deposit

Setting up auto deposits with your financial institutions may be a good option if you want to transfer funds electronically even more quickly. To do this, your account must be set up to automatically receive e-Transfers without requiring a security answer.

The money will be deposited into your account as soon as the sender sends you the e-Transfer.  

E-Transfer Deadlines for the Big Five Banks

Scotiabank  Once you've received confirmation that your Scotiabank e-Transfer has been processed, you'll have instant access to the money. A typical message delivery time is under 30 minutes.   TD Once you receive confirmation that funds have been transferred via TD e-Transfer, you can access those funds. In most cases, the recipient will have the message within a minute of the electronic transfer being sent.   BMO Even though the maximum time for a BMO e-Transfer to reach its destination is 30 minutes, the recipient will typically receive the money instantly.   RBC Payments made via Rbc e-Transfer are reflected instantly. If the recipient has an automatic deposit set up, the money will be deposited right away.    CIBC The recipient's bank account is credited with the money as soon as the sender confirms the CIBC e-Transfer. However, the recipient may not receive the e-transfer notification for up to 30 minutes.  

If I send an e-transfer, why is it taking so long to arrive?   

Money transferred electronically via e-Transfer may take some time to arrive, but this is entirely dependent on your bank. We'll go over each of Canada's major financial institutions and the reasons why you might have to wait a bit longer than usual to see your money in your account.

Why Is TD's Electronic Transfer So Slow?  

The majority of TD's e-Transfers are completed in under a minute, and the recipient is alerted via email or text message. TD Global Transfers, on the other hand, can take significantly longer, anywhere from a few hours to several days.

  • There is a waiting period of 24 hours to 10 business days for "Send to Account" options.
  • Options to "Send for Cash Pick-up" take two to four hours.
  • It can take 24 hours to two days for "Send to Card" options to process.

For what reason is my Scotiabank e-transfer taking so long?  

Payouts made via e-Transfer from Scotiabank are typically received within minutes. If it takes longer than that, something is likely wrong, like a slow internet connection or incorrect transfer information. If the amount being transferred is larger than usual, the process may be slowed.  

Why Is RBC's Electronic Funds Transfer So Slow?  

The average time for an RBC e-Transfer to complete is less than a minute. If the funds have not arrived within a minute, check your internet connection and transaction details.  

The transfer time may increase if you are not an RBC customer and do not have an account there. In addition, your transfer may not go through for three to five days if you haven't set up online Banking.  

How Come My CIBC e-Transfer Is Taking So Long?  

The time it takes for a CIBC transfer is dependent on the amount being transferred. With larger transfers, the time it takes for the money to arrive in your account could increase.  

Transferring amounts less than 0 should take no longer than 30 minutes. However, there are restrictions on how much can be transferred in a given amount of time.

  • You can't spend more than $3,000 in a day.
  • The sum in question must not exceed $10,000 in a span of 7 days.
  • You can't spend more than $30,000 in a month on it.

What's Causing the Delay in My BMO e-Transfer?  

It may take up to 30 minutes for transfers over $300, but BMO e-Transfers may be instantaneous.  

Causes of Your E-Transfer's Delay

Your e-Transfer should reflect in your bank account within a few minutes, barring any unforeseen delays. However, there may be instances in which you have to wait significantly longer:

Different Financial Institutions Serve as the Sender and Receiver's

A longer processing time may be experienced if the sender is using an e-Transfer from a bank at which you do not have an account.  

Poor Online Connection

E-transfers, in particular, can be slowed down by an unreliable internet connection. If your transaction seems to be taking too long, check your connection and try a new location if you need to for better reception.  

Incorrect Recipient Information

You may never receive the transfer if the sender provides incorrect information, such as the wrong recipient name or phone number/email address. It will be necessary to correct the incorrect information here.  

Financially Significant Moves

Any amount over $300 to 0 may cause a delay in processing, depending on the receiving bank.

Other Considerations

Extra time required for an Interac e-Transfer can be caused by a few other factors:

  • Newly transferred students
  • Specifics of the automatic deposit feature for the recipient
  • The bank processes wire transfers one at a time.
  • Security measures taken by the bank to prevent fraudulent activity

If I want to send money electronically, how long will it take?

Depending on your bank, sending an Interac e-Transfer will take no more than a few minutes. After pressing the send button, the transfer should take place instantly, though it could take up to half an hour in rare circumstances.   

What Occurs If Your Electronic Funds Transfer Is Refused  

If the recipient of an e-Transfer you initiate does not accept it, the funds will be returned to you after the transfer has expired. The recipient will typically receive a reminder email a few days before the expiration date, giving them up to 30 days to accept the transfer.

If your e-Transfer is not accepted, your bank may assess a return fee, typically .
