How do I fund (move money into) my trading account?

  • By electronic funds transfer (EFT). Send funds electronically via the Transfer Funds page of our trading platform. Or, call us to process one for you. As soon as you process an EFT to your account you can place a trade, even though it can take a day or two for the money to reach your account.
  • By online bill payment. You can login to your financial institution’s online banking service and set up Credential Direct as a bill payee just like your utility company. Please note that at least two business days are required to transfer the payment into your trading account and you will have to wait for the funds to arrive in the account before placing trades based on the transfer.
  • By cheque. You can also mail a cheque to our Vancouver office, payable to Credential Direct. Sorry, no cash deposits.
