What if I need to return my purchase? How do I get my money back?
It is important that you check each merchant's return/refund policy prior to making your purchase. Some merchants will process a refund where the funds are credited back to your bank account.
I'm not sure if my payment was completed. How do I know?
If you reach the confirmation screen, and receive a confirmation number, you can be sure your payment was completed. If you confirmed your payment in online banking, but did not get redirected to a confirmation page on the merchant website, then there was a technical problem. One of two things may have happened: a. The merchant received your payment, but for some reason you were unable to see the confirmation page. b. The merchant was not able to receive your payment. You can often determine that it was case (a) if the merchant sends you a confirmation email, or allows you to check your order history on their website. In case (b), the funds will be (in most cases) re-credited to your bank account within minutes. If you are uncertain, contact the merchant to ask whether your order has been processed or contact the payment processor’s customer support desk.
How can I protect myself against online fraud?
In a proven case of online fraud, you are protected by the 'Customer Services Rules', which ensure that your funds are returned to your bank account by your Financial Institution. These 'Rules' are based on the reputable Canadian Code of Practice for Consumer Protection in Electronic Commerce. While we work with all stakeholders, as well as security experts, to maintain the ongoing security of our services, there are actions that you can take as well. You are encouraged to regularly check your bank statements to verify that all transactions have been properly documented. If entries do not accurately reflect transaction activities - for example, if there are missing or additional transactions you should immediately contact your financial institution.
