Ways to pay bills.

Never miss a payment.

Avoid unwanted late-payment penalties and make recurring bills hassle-free. Plus, pre-authorized payments can even help you maintain and improve your credit score. Vancity members typically set up pre-authorized payments for their regular and expected bills, like:

  • Monthly hydro bills
  • Strata payments
  • Car insurance
  • Gym memberships
  • Property taxes

What you'll need.

Pre-authorized payments are set up with your service provider. You can usually find setup instructions on the back of your bill or you can contact them directly. You’ll need to provide them your account information:

Void cheque (if applicable)

Some service providers may ask for a void cheque to set up pre-authorized payments. Often, the service provider will accept your account information in place of a void cheque. If you already have a cheque, simply write “VOID” in large letters across the face of a cheque.

Eligibility and fees.

Personal accounts

If you’re planning on setting up a pre-authorized payment from a personal banking account, we recommend you do so through either a Chequing Plus, or E Package Chequing. Both of these accounts incur no fees for pre-authorized payment transactions.

For a full list of fees, see the Personal Service Charge Bulletin.

Business accounts

Pre-authorized payment transactions from eligible business banking accounts may incur fees.
