Everything in detail is described in the article below. Every day thousands of Canadians choose one of the fastest, most secure digital payment systems Interac. According to statistics, there are about 16 million payments for services and money transfers per day. The leading fraud detection systems are responsible for the security of funds. There are several types of payment methods through this system. Interac Flash is the first and easiest way to pay quickly, contactlessly. It can be used throughout Canada, where the Interac Flash icon is marked. Interact Transfer is a fast and secure way to transfer and receive funds to your personal account. Interac Online allows you to pay for all your purchases from the comfort of your home. Also with the help of this payment platform, you can replenish your deposit in the office of the bookmaker’s office. To do this, you need to enter the number of your current account in the online bank and replenish the deposit in a couple of clicks. Among all other payment platforms in Canada, this is quite unpopular. Interac is more suitable for household shopping than for permanent use for playing platforms.
Interac like many other Canadian platforms works exclusively on the territory of the creator and work with a limited number of currencies. Therefore, the huge popularity enjoys only among Canadians and outside is little known.
The Interac Association is a Canadian organization that connects corporate networks of institutions to form a secure connection between them and to exchange electronic financial transactions. The Association was founded in 1984 as a joint venture between five financial institutions: Royal Bank of Canada, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Scotiabank, Toronto-Dominion Bank and Desjardins.
By 2010, the Association had 80 member organizations and over 59,000 ATMs accessible through the Interac network in Canada, as well as more than 450,000 merchants located throughout the country.
Interac Debit gives you access to your own money, straight from your bank account. For everyday purchases like your morning caffeine fix to the quick stop on your way home from work for dinner ingredients, using Interac Debit is like using cash, only more secure. Transactions are approved online and in real time as your money is exchanged electronically between your financial institution and the merchant. Interac Debit is available at over 500,000 merchant locations across Canada, from convenience stores to specialty clothing shops to gas stations and restaurants.
