In 2019 Interac’s e-Transfer system recorded approximately 486 million transactions worth about $169 billion. Those numbers are expected to dramatically increase in 2020 for both consumers and businesses with the current trends we’re seeing:

VoPay Bulk e-Transfer

You can access our bulk e-Transfer service through our developer friendly API and easily send thousands of near real-time payments with just an email.

You’ll get the ability to send up to $10,000 per payment to multiple recipients simultaneously with real-time acknowledgement and daily status reports. You can choose to send up to 1,000 e-Transfers in near real-time or send up to 100,000 e-Transfers overnight.

We’re proud to partner with Interac to power our bulk e-Transfer service and provide businesses with a seamless payout solution to meet their operational needs.

Product Features

Sending a Payment: In order to send Bulk Interac e-Transfers, you only need the recipient’s email address. With Bulk Interac e-Transfer businesses can send single or multiple Interac e-Transfers through our API.

Tracking & Reporting: Businesses receive a real-time acknowledgement, processing summary and daily status  reports, including the deposit of funds, and statuses of pending and cancelled transactions.

Banking and Payments For Gen Z Infographic

Generation Z Payments

Gen Z is the most interested in digital payment products and services of any generation. While adoption of mobile wallets has been relatively slow among the general population and P2P apps, like Venmo and Zelle, are just now gaining traction among older users, Gen Zers have already embraced the technology. More than half use digital wallets on a monthly basis and 3/4 use other digital payment apps or P2P apps.

2/3 of Gen Zers have a bank account but many don’t yet use debit cards, haven’t aged into credit cards or loans, and aren’t responsible for the bulk of their own spending. As they mature there is a prime an opportunity for providers to engage these customers.

VoPay is a leader in payment innovation offering a single API that instantly connects businesses to global banking and payment networks with speed and transparency. Learn more here to meet the payment needs of Gen Z!

How Do VoPay & Plaid Payments Work?

VoPay Plaid Payments

We’ve teamed up with Plaid to help make payment processing faster, more efficient and more secure. Before we dive into how it all works let’s get to know each of them a bit better.

Meet VoPay

VoPay is a leader in payment innovation, digitizing direct bank payments with speed and transparency. The VoPay Platform enhances how digital platforms initiate and accept financial transactions using a single, open API.

Meet Plaid

Plaid is a technology platform and data network that enables applications to connect with users’ financial accounts. They focus on lowering the barriers to entry in financial services by making it easier and safer to use financial data. Today, they support developers across North America and Europe.

How VoPay + Plaid Payments Work

VoPay layers Plaid’s Auth, Identity, Balance, and Transactions solutions over top of its core payment engine to deliver the most powerful EFT payments solution in the market.  The result is a seamless payment experience with reduced NSFs, verified bank accounts and improved payment speed.

Current Payment Challenges

There are three main hurdles when it comes to existing EFT payments:

1. Lack of visibility: Paper checks or electronic payment systems for bank account payments do not allow visibility into the bank account at the time of the payment.

2. No traceability: Businesses accepting check or electronic payments can not track the payments, the status of the transaction or when the funds will be available.

3. High risk: The current paper check and electronic payment service do not offer balance verification at the time of transaction.

Common Payment Use Cases

Some of the most common use cases include lending and market places where the solution can dramatically reduce NSFs, optimize cash flow, streamline back-office operations and improve payment security. Another would be legal and real estate where you can increase revenue with significantly reduced fees and decreased chargeback risk.

In summary, together VoPay + Plaid payments improve efficiency by verifying user identity and bank information prior to processing the transaction, minimize NSF fees by having visibility into available funds and reduce the access to funds time to just 24 hours.
