Canadian Dollars Direct Debit

In the case of Direct Debit transfer TransferWise will debit money from your account automatically, after you have authorised it on our website. This payment method is available for up to 9,500 CAD per 24 hours (and there is a bi-weekly limit of 30,000 CAD) from personal accounts only.

Once you've made an order, all you need to do is click on the bank login tab, enter your bank details (institution number, transit number, account number and account type), login to your online banking and you're away! This will then set up a one-time debit from your account to ours, meaning that these login details will need to be entered each time you make a payment via Direct Debit.

Here's all the information you need to know about Direct Debit transfers:

Once the Bank login is chosen as the payment method you'll see the image below. Simply enter the required details.

You will then be asked to log in to your internet banking through TransferWise, authorising a one time debit from your account.

Note: At TransferWise we take security extremely seriously and operate within regulations on using this data. In addition, all this data is kept strictly secure, and login details are not saved or accessible by anyone at TransferWise - they are only used to automatically verify your checking account with your bank and are not manually accessible in any capacity.

Direct debit transfers should arrive to our account within 3-4 working days.
