Interac - FAQs

Interac Debit is one of the lowest cost payment acceptance methods for Canadian merchants.  At pennies per transaction regardless of the size of your bill, you can help out your local merchants when you pay with Interac Debit.  Credit cards can result in higher costs as many have multiple fees and are percentage based, from 1.5 per cent to 5 per cent, of the total amount you are spending. It adds up and hits merchants’ bottom line, particularly small independent merchants, where every penny counts.
