How EFT Works

How does electronic funds transfer work?

Electronic funds transfer happens when digital instructions are sent to a bank to move funds between two accounts. While EFT is among the most efficient means of exchanging funds, the surrounding processes have been cumbersome. Until now.
To realize the advantages of electronic funds transfer you need an interface to communicate your transactions with the banking network. VersaPay offers a secure web interface, automation tools, and direct integration to one of the most robust financial networks in Canada.
