Flexibility – Multiple Delegates gives employees, accountants and others permission to view and conduct transactions on select accounts. Greater Security – Dual Signature Support allows a business owner to initiate a transaction and the other to finalize it.

Merchant Services

This program allows merchants to provide a convenience to their customers by accepting payment for goods and services by credit card and Interac direct payment through the use of an electronic terminal. These terminals provide fast approvals for the merchants. Our business members will gain the convenience of having these credits automatically deposited to their business accounts.

MerchantLink

A card authorization and deposit service for merchants who don’t wish to use an electronic terminal. This service offers an efficient authorization and deposit system all through the convenience of your telephone.

Card Services

MEMBER CARD – This dual purpose card provides easy 24 hour access to your chequing and savings accounts through automated teller machines bearing the Exchange, ACCULINK®, Maestro, Interac and Cirrus symbols. It also enables you to pay for purchases at merchant locations around the world by instantly debiting your account via the Interac and Maestro Direct Payment Systems. Advantages include elimination of the need to carry cash, cheques or a lot of identification, and each transaction will appear on your monthly statement.

Pre-Authorized Transactions

Pre-authorized debits are revocable payment arrangements between members and payees (e.g., insurance companies, financial institutions, strata corporations) whereby the member authorizes the payee to deduct payments (e.g., insurance premiums, mortgage/loan payments, investment contributions, strata fees) for a specified amount from the member’s account at regular intervals. Payments are most commonly processed electronically through the payee’s financial institution, although in some cases paper vouchers are still generated.
