The AutoDeposit feature automatically deposits funds you have been sent via Interac e-Transfer into your account. This feature eliminates the hassle of having to log into your online banking and answer a security question to receive your funds. Once you have completed the registration process, all funds will be directly deposited into your account. This is also a great security feature as the funds aren’t waiting for the recipient to deposit the money.
How do I cancel an Interac e-Transfer transaction?
To cancel a transfer, log into your online bank account. Go to the transaction or payment history and select the Interac e-Transfer transaction you wish to cancel. Use the cancel option provided. This process varies by financial institution, who may also charge a cancellation fee. Contact your bank or credit union for more information.
I need to cancel a transfer, but the recipient has already accepted the deposit. How do I reverse an Interac e-Transfer transaction?
Unfortunately, once a deposit has been made there is no way to reverse the transaction. You’ll have to make arrangements directly with the recipient. You should only send money transfers to parties you know and trust. For most Interac e-Transfer uses (sending money to family and friends, repaying IOUs, sending money as gifts, etc.), you will know the recipient well. For uses where you may not know the recipient (e.g., online auction purchases), take the same precautions you would take when making cash purchases. For online auctions and purchases, be sure to read and follow any steps recommended by the operators of these websites to safely transact.
