Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
EFT is our preferred payment method and is available to all Canadian based suppliers with a Canadian bank account.
Automated Clearing House (ACH)
ACH is available to all US based suppliers with a US bank account.
Benefits of EFT/ACH
- EFT is both an effective and convenient method for receiving payments.
- There is no waiting period for, or risk of lost or stolen cheques. No more “your cheque is in the mail.”
- EFT payments are deposited directly into your bank account, often on the same day.
- Remittance details are provided to you electronically by email, EDI (electronic data interchange), or fax.
- Payments are fully traceable.
- Eliminates paper cheques.
Electronic remittance details
In addition to electronic payment, we also use electronic remittances. OPG will provide payment details to you via fax or email.
