What is Request Money?

Request Money is a feature of Interac e-Transfer that allows you to request money from a person or business with an email address or mobile number and a bank account at a participating Canadian financial institution. If your recipient accepts your request for money, you'll receive an email from INTERAC letting you know the funds have been deposited into your account.


When you request money using Interac e-Transfer, an email or text message is sent to the recipient typically within 1 minute, though some notifications may take up to 30 minutes. If you used the recipient's email address and your recipient doesn't receive the email from INTERAC, have them check their email 'Junk' folder.

The request will automatically expire after 30 days if the recipient hasn't accepted or declined it.
