I received a mail from Simplii stating that I did not meet the requirements due to missing stamp. I never had any problem with EQ but why only with CIBC?
Was it a PAD form fillable by yourself - at another bank?
if so yes, usually it's rejected and I know it's as stupid as it could get.
Lots of banks/CUs/billers reject non-stamp PAD.

Another work around, make your own void cheque

When you log online, click Transfers, then click Bank to Bank, that allows you to link your external account directly.

Only Simplii AFAIK requires a stamp on all PAD forms for account linking. They say they used to only accept void cheques. DUCA told me they'd only insist on a stamp if it were a smaller, or lesser known FI. But Simplii requires a stamp for all PAD form submissions.

Which FI are you hoping to link? Are you unable to get a void cheque?

It was not fillable like Scotiabank. It's a void cheque from CIBC.

CIBC. It's weird as my EQ void cheque went okay.

As for Tangerine, still no sign if it was successfully or rejected.
