FAQs

What is a PC Money™ Account?

The PC Money Account is an account that works like debit, and rewards you every time you use it to make a purchase. Accepted everywhere Mastercard® is, this no monthly fee account gives you unlimited everyday transactions and rewards you with 10 PC Optimum points on every $1 you spend on purchases.

How does the PC Money Account differ from a conventional debit account?

The PC Money Account is an online self-service money management account. This means you can pay bills (including pre-authorized withdrawals for things like gym memberships and utility bills), and transfer funds between banks. You earn PC Optimum points every time you use your card to make a purchase online or in-store. You can use your card everywhere Mastercard® is accepted, including online and when travelling abroad. However, you can’t write or deposit cheques, or use your card with merchants that don’t accept Mastercard® payments.

How do I transfer funds into my account from another financial institution?

You can transfer funds by linking an external account, or by sending yourself an Interac e-Transfer®. Sending yourself an Interac e-Transfer® is the fastest way to fund your account. Linking an external account may take up to 3 business days.

Steps to send yourself an Interac e-Transfer®

  1. Send an Interac e-Transfer® from your external account, and input your own personal PC Money Account information. (Note that if you have Autodeposit set up with an external bank for the email address you’re using, you’ll need to disable Autodeposit in order to be able to receive the funds into your PC Money Account.
  2. You'll get a text or an e-mail to deposit your Interac e-Transfer®. When you do, select your PC Financial account
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to deposit your Interac e-Transfer®.

To link an external account

  1. Log in to your PC Financial mobile app or online account
  2. Click the pay and transfer button (the plus sign "+" on your mobile app)
  3. Click Move Money
  4. Hit Link External Account, and follow on-screen instructions to enter account information
  5. Wait up to 3 business days until your micro deposits show up in the external account you are linking. Make a note of the amounts of the micro deposits
  6. Repeat steps 1 -3 and confirm the amounts of the micro deposits when prompted
  7. You will see a “success” screen verifying that your account has been linked
