Please contact us for limits and further details. Your recipient must have a valid Canadian mobile number or email address as well as an account with a participating Canadian bank or credit union. Please ensure you enter the correct email address or mobile number*.

If we are unable to process the e-Transfer, worst case scenario will be a refund to the purchaser.
