very well. heh heh. I know that PayPal is commonly used for eBay auctions, but Interac EMT allows you to send money to any Canadian bank account. The limitations for Interac EMT is that you cannot send it to any bank account outside of Canada, but you can do that with PayPal (providing if the recipient has a PayPal account).

Nice.

Free to receive EMT.
$1.50 to send EMT.
$3.50 to cancel EMT.

It's live. Just received a transfer into my account (after I noticed that PC Financial was a supported bank after clicking the certapay.com link received via email)

Can't believe it took this long, but glad it's here.

Great! That will save me one step in a few cases where I had to transfer money to another bank that supports EMT first.

We also need to have cross-border debit as well! FYI, the PLUS and Cirrus networks ARE NOT (I repeat, ARE NOT) debit card networks. They are ATM networks! How about adding the Maestro capability to all PC Financial debit cards as well? We'll seee..

Also, It would be nice if there was an app for not just the iPhone, but also for Android and BlackBerry! I wonder how much does it cost to build such an application?

Yeah, it'll be perfect. Get an app to make instant payments to the store you are in. Then, when you hold it the wrong way you can't access your funds. :D

That would be nice as an option, but realistically I'm not sure I'd use it. International ATM transactions are so risky that I prefer to use an isolated debit card from a different bank that doesn't access any of my normal accounts.
