A fast, secure, and convenient way to transfer money
Interac e-Transfers® allow you to send money directly from your BlueShore Financial account through Online or Mobile Banking to anyone in Canada who has an email address or mobile phone number and an account with a Canadian bank or credit union.
No banking information is shared; only the recipient's email address or mobile phone number is required to set up the transfer. An email or text message will notify the recipients of incoming transfers, and they can accept the transfer by answering a security question you share in advance.
Sending an e-Transfer
To send an e-Transfer, you must first log into Online Banking.
Once logged in, select Transfers, then Interac e-Transfer from the left navigation menu.
The first time you send an Interac e-Transfer you will be prompted to create your Sender Profile. Enter your name, email address and mobile phone number to set up your profile.
Next, select the name of the person you want to transfer money to or Add a New Recipient. If adding a new recipient, enter their name, email address and mobile phone number and select how the recipient is to be notified (email and phone). Enter a security question and answer known to the person, then click Add Recipient.
Once you have selected the recipient, enter the amount of money to be transferred and select which account the funds are coming from. If you choose, you can add an optional message. Once complete, click Send Transfer.
This can also be done through Mobile Banking on your mobile phone.
It normally takes less than 15 minutes for the recipient to receive a notification. As soon as the transfer is accepted, funds are deposited directly into the recipient’s account.
You’ll receive a confirmation email when the transfer has been accepted or declined.
Receiving an e-Transfer

Once authenticated, enter the answer to the sender’s security question and select which account you wish the funds to be deposited to. The funds will be immediately deposited to your account.

Although you want to set up a security question known only to you and the recipient, sometimes this is not practical. In these cases, it may be necessary to communicate this information to the recipient by text message or by phone. Never include the password in the e-Transfer message field.
