温哥华,B.C.2020年10月5日- 

As more and more individuals and businesses accelerate their use of digital payments, 中一信用社(中一), has seen an almost 50 per cent year-over-year increase in the number of Interac e-Transfer® transactions it has processed on behalf of Canadian credit unions and other financial institutions in the six months since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, 中央1 was already seeing significant growth in Canadians’ use of Interac e-Transfer transactions and other types of electronic payments. However, pandemic restrictions have accelerated the shift from paper to digital payments. In March 2020, 中央1 processed 24 per cent more Interac e-Transfer transactions compared to the same time last year. 同比增长稳步上升, including a 52 per cent increase in July 2020 compared to the same month last year. 在总, 在过去六个月里, 中央1’s experienced payments team processed over $15 billion in Interac e-Transfer transactions on behalf of its 200 Interac e-Transfer clients; a 33 per cent increase on the total dollar volume of Interac e-Transfer transactions sent and received during the same period last year.

“中央1 values our position as a trusted payments partner to the credit union system and within the overall Canadian financial services industry,” explains 中央1 President and CEO Mark Blucher. “The extraordinary growth in the number of Interac e-Transfer transactions sent by Canadians through their credit union or financial institution, 并由中央一处理, is just one example of how we are helping our clients enable their customers to send and receive payments – safely and securely – whether across the country or around the corner.”

“COVID-19 has accelerated a new era in payments driven by the changing needs of Canadians,威廉·克里霍说, 首席商务官, Interac集团. “加拿大人对 Interac e-Transfer service 是一个t an all time high, with the number of monthly senders growing by 18 per cent and recipients growing by 16 per cent since February 2020. Making the shift from cash or cheque to digital transactions 是一个 safe, convenient way for all Canadians to manage their finances.”

Positioning the credit union system and other financial institutions for growth and 创新 in the payments eco-system has always been a key focus at 中央1. 25年了, the experienced payments provider has settled billions of dollars in payments every month for the Canadian credit union system. 自从中环一开始提供 Interac e-Transfer service over 10 years ago, it has processed over 120 million Interac e-Transfer transactions on behalf of 200 credit unions and other financial institutions. 中央一号也是 the first Canadian financial institution to offer Interac e-Transfer transactions either using a mobile phone number or an email address and has enabled a number of clients to become the first credit unions in Canada with Interac e-Transfer enhancements, such as enabling small business owners to request quick payment via the Interac e-Transfer服务, providing financial institutions the ability to offer Interac 安排发送电子转账事务 给他们的客户.
