Interac - FAQs

One of the main benefits of the Interac Online Payment is the separation of shopping and paying. The consumer is taken to his or her financial institution to make the payment so that he or she does not have to enter any account information on your website. Many studies show that consumers are concerned about sharing financial or account details with online merchants.

In the Interac Online Payment flow, the consumer's web browser is automatically directed back to your website once the payment is made. In the event that the consumer is unable to or decides not to authorize the payment in online banking, they are still returned to your website, allowing you to continue the checkout process using a different payment method.
