Want to deposit $ in another person's account

I want to deposit $$ on a regular basis to someone else's TD account. I would prefer to avoid email $ transfer because they are old and I can't trust them to accept it correctly every time.

I don't have a TD account.

I know I could go into a TD branch in person and get this done, but is there an easy free way to do this electronically?

Have your recipient setup auto deposit on e-transfer. Hang out with them while doing the first e-transfer, then have them accept the auto deposit feature. It'll be associated with their email.

You could help them setup Interac email transfer to automatically deposit to their account, which TD supports. Then, when you send them an email transfer it will deposit automatically without their intervention.

Thanks guys. I know about this auto-deposit feature as I use it on my account as well.
I will probably go this route... wasn't sure if anyone knew of another way.

Other things I thought of was to see if they have a credit card or a trading account. I can just pay those using bill-pay feature.

CC, yes (and earn pts via PayTM). Trade account... YMMV. It'd probably work, but they tend to not accept BP's from 3rd party.

They do, yes. Same branch for sure but I think it can do diff branches too.

They’ve also got a “Visa Direct” thing where if you have someone’s 16-digit Visa or Visa Debit number you can send money to that.

The easiest way is to open a TD account.

I was thinking auto-deposit.

Another alternative is to set up a joint account, and put money into that joint account (if you bank at the same bank). They would have to move the money from the joint to their account... well, more like they should do that.

"TD CANADA TRUST LOC" appears as one of my credit union's available bill payees. Does she have a TD line of credit?
18% = GTA residents as a proportion of Canada's total population
97% = chance that an RFDer lives in the GTA when he posts something location specific, without giving a location

Were you hit with surprise customs/import fees on an Amazon.ca purchase?

If autodeposit is out of the question for you, you can deposit as a 3rd party into someone else's bank account. You will need their name, bank account number, and you can only deposit cash. No CHQs.
