Next Day Bank Deposits for Canadian Merchants

With Canada First you don’t have to wait to get paid. With next day bank deposits, your processed funds are deposited to your preferred bank account on the next business day. That way your cash flow is optimized. Because we can deposit funds to any Canadian bank, financial institution or credit union you don’t have to switch banks or open a new account.

FAQs About Next Day Bank Deposits

Do You Need A Business Bank Account?

If your business is incorporated or if it is a partnership, then your funds must be deposited to a business bank account. If you are the sole proprietor of a business, you can use your personal bank account to receive your processing deposits.

How Long Does It Take For Funds To Be Deposited Into My Bank Account?

If you are banking with the Bank of Montreal, TD, Scotia Bank, CIBC, Royal Bank, National Bank and many other banks and credit unions, your funds should be deposited into your designated bank account the next business day. That’s why we call it next day bank deposits. Some, non mainstream banks and credit unions may take up to 2 business days.

Keep in mind that the earlier your settlement is performed, the faster the deposit will be made to your account. That is to say, if you settle your transactions early in the day, then your funds will be deposited on the next business day.

If you perform your settlement at 11:30 p.m., it is possible that you will receive your funds two business days later. Transactions processed over the weekend are deposited the next business day.

What If I Process Transactions in US Funds?

Canada First facilitates processing transactions in US funds.

If you decide that you want to process some transactions in US funds then you will need a second merchant account and a terminal dedicated to US funds. You’ll need to provide a void cheque for a U.S. dollar bank account from a Canadian financial institution.

Keep in mind that fund settlements processed in U.S. dollars may take an extra day to settle.

Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC)

Canada First also offers Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) which allows merchants to offer international customers the option to pay in their home currency, while protecting you from currency fluctuation.

When Will Processing Fees Be Debited From My Account?

Normally, most processing fees are collected on the first day of the month following the transactions (depending when the weekend falls). Monthly fees are collected on the last business day of the month. Upon request, we can also have your merchant account on “Net Settlements” where processing fees are debited before they are settled to your bank account.
