Electronic Funds Transfer

Westminster Savings Credit Union's Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT) service lets you electronically debit Canadian and U.S. dollar accounts at any financial institution in Canada.

If your business collects regular, recurring receivables such as rent cheques, maintenance fees, bill payments, membership fees, or donations, then pre-authorized payments can help accelerate receivables, improve your cash flow and reduce administration.

Benefits

  • Flexibility, control - in addition to controlling the timing of payments, you can trace payments, recall items or files and make corrections online.
  • Reduced operating costs - EFT reduces the costs associated with paper-based payment processing by reducing the time and cost of mailing and preparing invoices.
  • Time savings - EFT reduces time spent collecting, processing and depositing payments.
  • Improved security - EFT reduces the risk of lost, stolen or forged cheques
  • Customer convenience - EFT enables your customers to enjoy the convenience of having withdrawals made from any account of their choice, with no cheques to write or mail.
